You might remember my post of October 20, where I described how far behind I’d gotten in my life, including weeks behind with Bible study, which I NEVER allow anything in the universe of to happen normally, concurrent with multiple new things that were sucking up time and energy from the life that did not have a moment to spare. At the time, I was hoping that a couple more weeks would be all I would need to catch up, but as you can see, it ended up being 2 MONTHS!

For the first time in YEARS, I’m both caught up with everything, and without the stress and pressure of undone transcriptions hanging over my head. I still don’t have the luxury of a single day off, or even so much as a single evening, but until after the first of the year, I’m going to give myself a break from the stress… and then, I’ll see what I can do about getting some sermons back up here. I don’t know yet what form that will take, but I’m pretty certain that I will never be able to go back to doing word for word transcriptions every week; that’s just too much time to devote to something that doesn’t provide me with growth or progress in my life as a whole. I might be posting excerpts, or summaries, or alternating weeks… I don’t know yet, and I’m not going to wrestle with it now.

I hope that all of you will have a safe and joyful holiday season! Please keep in mind what I said before Thanksgiving, about gathering in people that have nowhere to go and no one to be with; Christmas is Jesus’ birthday, and the best gift that you can give him is to love and lift up the people he died in agony to save! Let’s finish the year strong, and be willing to have 2019 be the year we give God the most glory, and take the most territory for the kingdom, that we ever have!
