I’m Taking A Sabbatical From My Blog

...all for God’s glory will be taking a sabbatical for the next two months beginning today. I begin a writing project for a client today that will consume most of my time for the better part of a month. I have a very busy summer. In June I will be teaching Vacation Bible School at our church (4th and 5th graders). Later in June I will be a counselor for church camp kids (1st through 5th graders) I can’t wait. Both those opportunities take lots of planning and preparation. I will be visiting my uncle and brother in Arizona later in the summer as well.

The primary reason I’m taking a break from blogging is to allow God to refresh me and draw me closer to Himself. I plan on taking a very good Bible study this summer, as well as reading and studying my Bible more. I am asking God to teach me how to listen to His voice and discern His will. I want to live in the center of His will every hour of every day. I hope when I return in July God will give me more of His thoughts and wisdom to share here.

I will also take a sabbatical from visiting Godly websites and the many blogs I enjoy reading so much.  I want my break to be cold turkey for at least 60 days. What I will miss the most will be your wonderful, encouraging, loving comments. I read and make an effort to respond to each comment. What a blessing you all are to me!

If I could leave everyone with one thought to tide us all over until we meet here again, it would be this: No matter who you are, where you’ve been or what you’ve done I pray you know in your heart that God loves you dearly as His cherished child, with His unconditional, eternal love.

May God richly bless you.     I look forward to meeting you here again soon.

    Steve, you have been a blessing to us. You deserve to have the break and rest from blogging. We pray the Lord will give His beloved rest and refreshment in preparation for the road ahead.
    Go in the peace and blessing of the Lord and from us here on ChristianBlessings.
    Accept the joy of the Lord as your strength as you labour in ministry among the children and your relatives. Shine your light wherever He sends you. We look forward to your return, revived and revelling in His great love, ready to share His treasures in the Word as He inspires.
    Godspeed my friend. The best is yet to be.


  2. I clicked the “like” button even though I don’t “like” the fact that you won’t be here for a while.
    However, I do appreciate your reasons and I know the Lord will bless you and use you to bless others as you take this time.

    I especially pray for your ministry at the VBS and camp – ministries close to my heart. I pray that lives will be changed: that many will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and that others will be challenged to make Him LORD of their lives, determined to follow Him wherever He leads.

    We serve an amazing God.
