End of Q1 2019


It’s been a while. Every day I say I’m going to share what’s going on and what I’ve been up to and every day I get sidetracked. I feel like there’s been so much going on and nothing at all at the same time.

Have you ever felt like you were doing so much yet making so little progress? Well that’s what the first part of the year has felt like for me. I’ve been very busy over the last three months, spending a lot of time at the church for prayer as a part of our three-month consecration period and also for meetings. I’ve been working to make sure I’m ready for our strategic planning period that starts in April. I’ve also been teaching and preaching here and there, more so than usual.

I’ve been productive, but I must admit that I’m feeling empty. I am not sure why, but I am feeling less than fulfilled. Perhaps it’s because pursuing aggressive goals doesn’t allow you to feel any sense of accomplishment. It is also perhaps because I am not necessarily where I thought I would be by now and in some ways I feel I should be further along. It could also be that my travel schedule had waned considerably compared to last year this time.

It could just be that I’m ready for spring. Who knows? Whatever the case, that’s sort of where I am these days. I am not quite sure what I need to do to restore my passion, excitement, and motivation but a change is definitely needed.
