Q&A: Daily Updates for How Long?

A Solitary Highway, New Mexico 2007:  These are the days of running hard, driving fast, and laying foundational works that will pay dividends for generations to come.  No matter what it may look like at the time, God is always up to something greater and grander than can be seen with the naked eye.

A Solitary Highway, New Mexico 2007: These are the days of running hard, driving fast, and laying foundational works that will pay dividends for generations to come. No matter what it may look like at the time, God is always up to something greater and grander than can be seen with the naked eye.

From Trent Ling:

Who really knows?  As one carried along by the Holy Spirit (John 3:8 and 2 Peter 1:21), I have scant idea as to the when, where, how, and why of things.  I just try to do as I am told.  When God wishes to change directions with me, he must usually dispatch his forces to wrestle me to the ground and completely subdue me so that I will finally recognize God in the onslaught and surrender to him.  Since I am steadfastly against easier, lazier, and convenient convictions, God must definitively reveal himself to me when he decides to alter bearings with me.  Course changes absolutely never occur through any earthly attrition, disappointment, or regret.

In any case, I must say that enough food has already been placed upon the site to overfeed most for the rest of their days.  For that, we can be forever grateful.

“His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones.  I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”  Jeremiah 20:9.

Holding back and not sharing is always much more difficult and taxing than simply supplying something like a daily updated site.  And though the site’s trains still appear relatively empty (with but a few huddled masses partaking), it will remain fully available for those overly crowded visitations anticipated down the road.

I will always be up to something.  Yes, in the flesh, I would have concluded the site long before now.  But in the Spirit, it remains part of my food as it represents part of the will of God that I undertake (John 4:34).  As my resume shows a snowball-like accumulation of activities across the decades  (rather than the typical transition from one undertaking to the next), I suppose the next gig will simply add to, and not subtract from, this site’s current operations and ambitions.  Unless of course, I am pummeled in the mud to think otherwise.

  1. Thank you, Om Trent for your faithfulness in not going by your own agenda, but God’s, and continuously sharing in a form that can serve for generations to come, speaking of doing things that will last, amen! I am very amply supplied!

  2. I agree, the buffet Trent has provided for the earth is more than sufficient. Someone who knows absolutely nothing about the bible who is open, honest and humble can almost become a new creation overnight. Tracking Trent down after intently spending some time on this website would lock down their new life. For those fortunate enough to already be a Disciple of Jesus, it is spiritual food and a continual renewing of the mind and heart. May my ‘convenient convictions’ be over with and never return! Thank You Trent for the example of perseverance and zeal for the Truth. Amen!

  3. Thank you for the inspiration. And a favorite picture to boot!
    I was watching Secretariat the other day with family. Very inspirational and I loved the Belmont Stakes race where he won at 31 lengths (and no horse has come close since). Reminded me of the Kingdom. Love you

  4. Amen! Doing the will of God and doing as I am told will feed me and keep me in step with the Spirit. I choose to grow and change and not wallow in self-pity when I face opposition or antagonism. Trent, thank you for your example. Love you.

  5. You are right, you have supplied us with more than enough food to overfeed us, daily!… for the rest of our days.
    I’m grateful for your obedience to Christ, and the example you’ve shown us all in how to really live for others; have love and care for others. That’s amazing! May God be glorified! Love you.
