Hello Blog. I had almost forgotten that you existed until someone recently told me that you were still around. For some reason almost 5 years ago I started this blog as a way of expressing everything that I was feeling as a person and a church planter. This was going to be the place that I would share with the world everything that God was teaching me as a person and as a leader, I was pumped. But then writing everyday became difficult and then writing 5 days per week became difficult, then I said I will just do three days per week and finally I just quit. In fact when I looked at the last time that I posted anything on this blog I realized that if I would have just waited another month it would have been 4 years since I wrote anything at all on here. It is not as if I have been abducted by aliens for the past 4 years or something. It is just that Life and ministry has just gotten busy and I have gotten lazy.
This got me thinking that maybe my laziness in my blogging is no different that many peoples spiritual journey. We all start out saying I am all in for Jesus and we sign up and show up for everything. Then we begin to sign up far more than we show up for stuff and finally church becomes something that we used to do but now it has been 4 years since we have gone and we are not sure why. We liked going and we even liked the people but somehow life just got too busy and one week turned to one month and that turned to one year and so on.
So this post is one of questions more than answers for both my blog and our spiritual lives?
1. What are things that make a blog worth doing and a blog worth reading?
2. What do you do when you feel like you want to quit writing?
Now to the spiritual questions:
1. What are things that make following Jesus and being part of a spiritual community worth it?
2. What do you do when you feel like quitting spiritually?
