Ruminations: Reflections In The Midst Of The Journey is a selection of my writings that I’ve written over the last four years, most of which have appeared here on the blog, and edited into book form. I’m very proud of the way this collection came together, and excited to share it with you. If you would like to grab a copy of the book you can find it over on Amazon, the links are below.
It has been quite a while since I’ve blogged. It’s a bit strange. Over the past several months I believe that God has given me more insight into things than I’ve had in a long time, maybe ever. Several times I’ve said, “I need to blog about this.” But it just didn’t happen. Even if I sat down to blog, I just felt like I shouldn’t…or couldn’t.
I wonder if God was just telling me to shut up. Shut up and listen. I’m not very good at that. Even though I wasn’t blogging, I don’t know that I was doing a very good job of shutting up. Insights that I believe God was giving me…I didn’t write them…I didn’t even apply many of them. I thought about them. Pondered them. Wondered. Then moved on.
Life has been happening. At a frightening pace. Perhaps busyness was the main reason for the silence. Either way, God has been teaching me. I know it. I hope I’ve been learning. I hope I’ll be changed. I hope I’m changing. I would love to slow down. I don’t know how. I’m learning.
I feel free to write again. I think I do. Perhaps I’ve learned more than I think. I’m still learning, this I do know. Grace is unstoppable. This is a fact. This is exciting. Something new is happening. This blog will be different. My writing will be different. My life is changing. Forever changing. This is good, and scary. Exciting. A journey that is not exciting is hardly worth taking. I’m excited about the new journey. But then again, I guess it has always been the same journey. Maybe now I just have a better idea of where I’m going…or at least how to get there.
