From Trent Ling:
After racing out swiftly to the 300-page mark, this website will temporarily cease its daily updates in order to accommodate an otherwise incompatible descent to finesse and finish an unruly but great project (as encouraged in the preached audio message, “End Game Sync”). Ironically, just a few days ago, as reported in “Q&A: Daily Updates for How Long?” the Holy Spirit had prompted consideration of this now undertaken course. My response to that Q&A at the time showed me to be fairly unaware of the Spirit’s direction. But miraculously, without being mangled in the usual fashion, I was granted enough grace to call a timeout and to get clarity.
In boat-racing parlance, God has well enabled me to run this site down the front straightaway, into and out of the first turn, and up the backstretch. Demonstrably doable, these warm-up maneuvers portend well for a multi-faceted playbook down the road. It remains another question as to which plays, if any, Heaven will call.
“I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also.” John 10:16.
“But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” Luke 5:16.
For 22 years, I have spent much time and resource on the sheep of Christ within my own microscopic circles. Like Jesus, I must get beyond these boundaries and gather others also. In addition, God is currently nicely calling for more face time with me. He shall get it. Beyond that, I remain well aware that ministering, while great, does not top the list of my responsibilities. Thus, I must be sensitive even to God’s light tugging upon any of my reins.
My intent is to dig deep and to pull to the surface what I have been called to provide. Chronically unpopular, it is most assuredly guaranteed to displease, of course. But such will always be the lot of disciples of Jesus whose exploits can actually be read about in the Scriptures.
With 300 pages in the books perpetually standing by for those interested, I certainly do not feel that I have left anyone hanging or hungry. With unwavering enthusiasm and thrilling vision for the next 300 pages, I hope to land some big fish quickly and joyfully return to our sweet, daily fellowship. May all grow and prosper in the ever-exciting meantime.
