A Change

…Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.  1 Timothy 1:2

Dear Gospel Apprentice Readers,

For quite some time my goal as far as posting frequency here on Gospel Apprentice has been to post once a week: Sermon Notes, something I’ve written, and links to interesting articles around the internet.

Over the last few weeks I’ve discovered that blogging needs to be moved down a bit on my priority list. Life has been a bit unsettled for me lately (sometimes even overwhelming) and posting three times a week has become more difficult, and at times even burdensome. There are several new responsibilities in my life that I must (and am happy to) give my attention to that are more important than my blog.

Unlike most women, I’ve never been a good multi-tasker. I tend to zero in on one thing at a time, which really cuts down on the number of things I’m able to juggle! I came close to taking a complete break from blogging, but have come to believe that is not what the Lord would have me do. So, I’ve decided to just cut myself a break and write when I can,  thereby freeing myself up to give attention to people and things that I believe need to be in a more prominent position on my list of priorities.

I’ve grown to love so many of you in my “blogging family.” I will continue to visit your blogs as often as I can and appreciate in advance the encouragement I am sure to find there.

By His Grace and for the Gospel,

    I totally understand. I’m not so much of a multi-tasker either–too many things on my plate feels more like unfinished business, and they quickly become burdens, even if they are a joy to do. There are seasons in everyone’s life–if your thoughts, goals, and actions never change you can become stagnant! Don’t feel guilty just because it’s time for you to tend to the other garden patches in your life! Love you, friend, and I look forward to the few posts you will post :).

      Thanks, Mandy. I have a feeling that taking the pressure to post off may result in more posts in the long run. It’s funny how that works. I’ve already filled several of my personal journal pages with thoughts, maybe because I felt free to write without thinking about them as blog posts!

      As always, appreciate your comment and encouragement! =)

    Even once a week is lovely! Once a month will do…but don’t stop, pleeeeze. ;-)

      Hi Juliet,
      How are you,friend!? =)

      I’m hoping that becoming less structured and scheduled will inject some joy back into blogging.

      Really appreciate the encouragement. Praying all is well with you!
