I haven’t posted anything in a few days. Honestly, I’ve just been exhausted. I think I sort of burned myself out a little when I wrote the series Only a Suffering God Can Save. I had been wanting to write it for a while, but the time never seemed right. Finally I decided to just do it. It was the most intense writing experience I’ve had in a long time, and after it was done, I just felt drained.
But now I’m starting to come back around. I have been reading other people’s blogs and I have found a few new topics I want to address. Also, when I was moving I put up a bunch of poetry just a filler. The blog was starting to grow and I didn’t want to disappear and have people forget about it so I posted some poems by some Christian mystics I like. They were a big hit. So I have been thinking that I might start posting some of my work once a week. I like to write sonnets so I was thinking of having a Sunday Sonnets or something like that. Not that I will only do sonnets, but the name is catchy. I’m looking forward to that.
I am thinking about writing a book based on some of the themes I touched on in Only a Suffering God Can Save. (I feel silly linking back to it every time I write the name, but it looks funny if I don’t.) Something about that topic, it just burns inside me. I feel like Jeremiah. He wanted to quit, but the message burned him down into his bones, so he had to go on. I just see so many people suffering, and not understanding why. I see so many Christians who don’t seem to understand anything about Jesus, why He died, what He meant by some of the things He said. I’m not saying I can change the world or anything, but I have to teach. It’s what I am.
So pray for me and my work. For my family who supports me in what most people would call my craziness. May the peace of Christ be with you all.
