Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!—Psalm 46:10 (ESV)
I’ve been quiet for a few days, and some of that has been self-imposed. I have a tendency when I am struggling through a problem to air out all the dirty laundry. I got called out on it the other day on my Facebook and Twitter and realized that I don’t have enough self-control not to talk about the issue. So, there’s that thing.
If you are a praying person, we would appreciate some on that front, because we’re looking at a particular situation and trying to figure out what God wants us to do. There aren’t a lot of people we can look to for counsel on the situation either, so that is making it tough.
Another reason for being quiet is that this blog has been an experiment for me the last couple of months, and it looks like it’s not working out the way I had hoped. I guess I was expecting that everybody I knew on Twitter would read, comment, retweet and I would become one of those thousands of other celebrity bloggers.
Instead, the numbers are not very encouraging, and I seem to be writing for an audience of myself. If I’m writing for myself, then I have other writing projects for myself that I need to work on instead. For example, I need to finish a book I’ve been writing for our second child that is about 3 years overdue, and I need to start another book for our third child since that came out of nowhere.
Speaking of which, our family is expecting baby #3, due in August like all the others (which is weird). I’m glad I could get that happy news in there so this post doesn’t turn into a complete downer.
Like the Scripture says, I think I need to be still for a while and let all this rest. I’m not very good at that, so I need to learn to put the blog away and shut up (not good at that either).
