My Greek professor at the Moody Bible Institute used to say – “students, don’t get rrrrrrrusty (he always drew his R’s out long)…you must take the time to sharpen your ax so when you hit – you hit hard and you make a mark.”
It’s time I sharpen my ax! This picture is a little misleading because it looks like I’m going on vacation – but I am not. I am changing my blogging schedule and this should give me some time to sharpen my ax.
The blogging world is fantastic. I used to burn up inside with thoughts and feelings that I had no way to express except in my journals. Blogging has been a release for me and an unexplainable joy! I truly treasure you – my readers. I have met SO many women who are so neat! You guys fascinate me!
But in the spirit of the Making Your Home a Haven Fall Challenge, I have decided to slow my blogging schedule down. I have recently sent emails to websites I contribute to, telling them I will no longer be contributing and I have been saying “no” to guest post requests. Saying “no” and “I quit” are really hard for me.
But in the process, I am finding a burden lifted and I feel stronger with each “no”!
I have decided to even say “no” to myself! I have been blogging 5 days a week for 2 years straight. I LOVE blogging and seriously have gone back and forth on this decision. I have decided to decrease my posts to 3 days a week – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
If you are looking for something to read on Tuesdays and Thursdays hop on over to GoodMorningGirls.org
where my high school best friend blogs on Tuesdays and I will be blogging on Thursdays there!
I apologize this is a very uninspiring post – I don’t have much to say except that I feel the Holy Spirit prompting me to take a step back – and I am listening and praying that I heard Him correctly!
Ecclesiastes 3 comes to mind: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven; a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and time to gather them…”
The last two years have been a true joy to pour out my soul everyday but I sense a new season where I pull back just a hair to breathe in fresh air, read new books, and fill my soul with more great things to make my ax sharper.
Keep Walking with the King!
