I’ve missed you guys.
I put my pen and podcast mic down about 5 months ago. Here’s why:
Because you and I are so deeply immersed in the lives of those in our home we can quickly be overtaken by schedules, plans, and extracurricular stuff. Instead of doing life, we can end up waking up one day and realizing that life is doing us. That’s exactly what happened to me this year and my eyes were opened to the realization that I had lost my intentional edge; the very intentionality I had talked about in my podcasts.
Date nights with my wife had waned. Devotional moments in The Word with my boys had become spotty. I knew it was time for me to take a break and put things in order. No one wants to listen to a hypocrite and I don’t want to be one.
Here’s the truth the Lord’s been reminding me as a husband and dad over the past few months:
The first place you and I are called to love, lead, and pastor is our home.
Putting our faith and family first must be more than just words. These precious ones are counting on you and I to get this right.
As I do this I’m leaning back in to sharing here and I hope it’s a help.
Let’s grow together.
