Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
I haven't blogged in a while. You may not have noticed, but I have.
I've felt guilty about it.
I've thought of a dozen things I wanted to blog about, but then didn't follow through.
That made me even more guilty.
I have feeling guilty . . .
When I feel guilty for two long, I have a panic attack.
That's never pretty and it brings on more guilt.
And the bottom line is I haven't blogged because I've been too busy to stop long enough to do it.
It's not like I'm never thinking about God. For example, during the past weeks I've spent a ton of time in the Bible. I teach two Bible studies a week and spend time preparing for both. I'm editing Bible curriculum each week (usually two a week) and working through parts of curriculum with new writers every week. I'm editing a manuscript about that curriculum. This week I worked through 8 chapters of it. Lot's of time spent in the Bible.
But if I'm not careful, I get caught up with the work load, the deadlines, the expectations I've put on myself, with the other 12 things I'm trying to do for my family . . . all good stuff, by the way . . . and neglect to take time to be quiet and reflect in one's happening in my spiritual life. That doesn't mean my prayer life is non-existent, or that I never worship.
It just means that blogging is a time for me to be quiet for a few minutes and listen for God's voice. Obviously, I haven't had much quiet time lately.
I wonder if I had more quiet time if I'd have fewer feelings of guilt?
Now, that's a "no-brainer."
