Behind but Catching Up

Posted: March 22, 2021 in Uncategorized

The last few days have been a bit on the busy side. I preached four days of Revivals starting on the 14th of March. I arrived home on the 18th and that evening my mother in law passed away. The next day we planned her service and it was decided that I would officiate the service. Sunday, I preached at church and afterwards, I officiated a wedding. Monday was spent in preparation for the Funeral service which leads to the funeral on Tuesday March 23. I am posting this for March 22, so I can keep my goal of having 365 posts this year. Why do I share all this? Partly to explain how I missed posting, but mostly because I want you to see something important about goals.

It would be really easy for me to say, I was just too busy and move on. That might even be the right thing to do in this case, but here’s the thing. This has happened before and it became something of an excuse. I looked at the goal, and said well I blew it now. I might as well give up and go back to posting sporadically. I’ve done that before. Here’s the thing. Busyness is a reality of life in this world, and there will be times when we miss our goals and our deadlines and that point we have a choice. We can give up or we can catch up. I’d rather catch up.

There is also the temptation to think, “Well only a few people hit this site anyway. What difference does it make?” All that is is negativity. It’s true. My audience is not huge, but what about you? After all, you took the time to come here and read this, and I appreciate that more than you will ever know. I harbor no illusions that this site is huge or even that it will ever necessarily be huge. I know this is a niche site. Not everyone is interested in creative arts ministry, but some are, (like you), and I know that the Lord can do amazing things through small groups of people and even individuals. So today I catch up, because you are worth it to me, and I can’t wait to see what you will do and more importantly what God will do through you.
