Lately I’ve been a cyberhermit and have done very little blogging of my own or reading other blogs. There are several reasons for this: things are pretty busy around here, I’ve become more involved in real life and ministry, and I’ve needed more time for introspection. Also, when I make time to write it’s usually for other projects instead of this blog.
The bottom line is that I’m beginning to feel like this particular blog format has run its course, and I’m not sure what will happen next with my writing. I’m open to where God wants to lead me.
Until the path becomes clear, here are a few of my favorite posts from the past few years – posts that changed me in some way, either through the writing process or through your comments.
Spiritual, Supernatural Things (Part 2). The events described in this post and the comments that follow dramatically shaped my awareness of the spiritual realm, as it relates to questions of belief and atheism.
Pluralism and the End of the World. Studying the end-times has always fascinated me, but this particular train of thought (Babylon, pluralism, etc.) stretched me to dig deeper into the Word and the theology of last-days events.
The anti-babylon. A recent post that describes where I am now, as I become more involved in ministry. Lord, keep me from all that complicates and distracts. Help me draw near to the Kingdom of God as I help others do the same.
What has God done in your life recently? My first post, written in May 2008. I began this blog as a tool to market my book The College Precipice, but it became so much more than that for me. Strangely, a section from this post describes my current status:
Can you see God at work in your life when you remember the past four years? Now here’s the question of the day: Can you see God at work in your life in the next four years? (Hebrews 11:1 –Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.) And that’s what this blog is about — trusting God to take you into the unknown future.
So I guess I should take my own advice now, right?
