Yes I am Still Blogging

If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you have noticed that there has been a sudden drop in blog post. The drop was from daily post for a Bible reading, to doing it few and far between, and then in June it just stopped all together. There are several reasons for this. I will explain them below.

I started this blog to share my thoughts on life and ministry. I also wanted it to be a place where I could communicate with the members of my congregation. I decided last year to make this a place to do a Bible reading guideline from. For the first five months of the year this went really well. Then around the time Alivia was born I kind of stopped doing it as regular. Maybe it was because life got really busy, or maybe I lost my drive. I think both can sum it up.

Life got busy as any parent out there knows. Not only did I have the responsibility of helping Crystal with our daughter, but I also had all the responsibilities at church. Summer was quickly approaching and that means busy times for churches. West Side is no different. But something also happened. My drive for the blog was waning. I realized that most of my post we becoming very redundant. I was repeating myself each day having a hard time of being creative and different. The pattern began to be hit or miss and then in June I just decided to stop all together.

I needed a break. I needed to step away and get a new perspective. While I am not ready to start back with the Bible reading today, it will be back very soon. I am excited to see what God will teach me in the next couple of weeks. During the silence on the blog God has been working in different ways in my life and I am excited to share them with you. Keep checking back to see what new things God will be sharing through the blog and my life in the coming days.
