New Posting Schedule

From now on, I’ll only be posting on Mondays, instead of twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. The reason for this is that I’ve been so busy with my blog, I haven’t had much time for any other writing. I’m currently writing what I hope to be a novel, and I’m writing a few devotionals a month for RealTeenFaith.com. If I try to fit any other writing in that mix, I end up getting overwhelmed.

So I decided that blogging a little less would give me more time to write in my novel and more time to concentrate on writing RTF devotionals when I need to. Then when God blesses me with another writing opportunity, I’ll have more time to fit it in.

Yesterday, my pastor preached on “slowing down” and taking time to just be with God. He likes to say that’s why God called us human “beings” and not human “doings”. But so often I like to try to do things for God instead of just sitting at the feet of Jesus like Mary in the story of Mary and Martha. Serving God is great, but God cares more about having a personal relationship with me.

While I serve God with my writing, using the gift He gave me for His glory, I feel God wants me to “be still and know that He is God” more, too. (Psalm 46:10) If I cram my schedule so full of stuff, I won’t have any time for the important things, or the ultimate important thing, which is God, and a relationship with him on a personal level.

I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas season and a wonderful New Year!

  1. Although I think blogs have a very important place in many writers' careers, they can be a huge time-sucker. Good luck finding the right balance! That's what we're all in search of.
