I have been quiet on the blog for the last several day. Why? I have had nothing to say. There have been times in my life when it just seemed like I had run out of words (I know that is hard to believe). I have over the last 25 years of ministry experienced many feelings, failings, and fortunes. Feeling lie to me as well as tell me the truth. Failings do not define who I am. Fortunes are always the gifts of God. I have developed strategic plans both personally and professionally. Some have succeeded and some have failed. I have come to this conclusion. Let prayer and faithfulness be my strategy. I will seek to pray about everything and seek to be faithful in everything. Then I will just trust. The results will not always be what I want but they have not been up until now, so that is no change. I cannot figure it all out but I will seek to watch and pray. I hope this is not just words on a page but a new way of living.
