Input and Output

Sometimes I post daily or even more. Other times I don't. That is for a variety of reasons. Here lately, at a time when I thought I would post a lot (due to the fact that I am recovering from an injury and have a lot of time and nowhere to go), I find posting difficult.

Some of this is probably just trying to force it. I have started posts only to never finish them. Some of it is just not wanting to sit here and whine about things that I have no control over. But a lot of it has been this has been a great time for input, rather than output. I have been reading blogs, books, articles. And it feels great. Great to catch up on what is going on in several places, great to spend quiet time with God (especially while the kids are in school), and great to just learn.

So maybe when I get around to posting some more, as I am sure will happen again, I will be able to speak with a greater sense of wisdom because it will not just be my own. I am thankful for a season of "reloading."

If you are interested, here are some of the things I am reading...

Radical by David Platt - thumbs up
Growing Churches, Growing Leaders by David Faust - Jury is still out on this one
Redeemed, by Mike Wilkerson - thumbs up
Rid of My Disgrace by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb - thumbs up

I have about 4 others that I have not started yet. Maybe some fodder to future posts. Until next time...

I can relate. This past week has been very busy and I am just now catching up on my blog reading.

You have a great writing style. I most love when you relate those lessons that God has taught you in the hard times of your life.
