Overwhelmed

From kind words of encouragement to personal stories, you all have been amazing. I’m very blessed. Thank you so much.

In case you’re wondering what I’m talking about, read yesterday’s announcement.

Since I’ll be focusing a lot of time on the book and a few other projects, I’ll be dropping from 5 posts a week to 3 on the blog here. Subscribe to my RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Thank you all again for your incredible support!

Exciting News: From Obstinate Blogger to Accidental Author

Blogger to Author

People ask me why I blog. Sometimes I ask myself.

  • Why would I spend 10+ hours a week laboring over my laptop?
  • Why would I attempt to invest in the lives of faceless digital strangers?
  • Why would I commit to sharing so much of myself with no promise of any return?

These are the questions I ask myself as I stare at a blank computer screen. These are the subtle and dangerous cues from an enemy who would gladly snatch the words from my fingertips.

This is the wall that I’m forced to climb every time I sit down to write. This is my resistance.

There's So Much More…

A little break from my Resolved series…

There’s so much more.

Whatever drug you’re about to use, whether its alcohol, television, sex, or food – the joy it proposes is a just a tiny shadow of the infinite joy that’s already been offered to you.

There’s so much more.

Whatever dark place that you’re about to go into, the comfort it offers is nothing compared to the eternal embrace of our great Comforter.

There’s so much more.

Whatever principle you’re about to compromise on, the reward it promises pales in comparison to that ultimate reward already laid up in Heaven.

There’s so much more.

Whatever lie you’re about to tell, the temporary shelter it provides will never supply you with the ultimate protection you so desperately seek.

There’s so much more.

A God who would send His only Son to redeem and restore you in spite of those things.

A God who could look at you and only see the righteousness of Christ.

A God who freely offers you endless hope, joy, and peace in Him.

There’s nothing more.
