Last September, I started a series on Paul’s letters with plans to go through a chapter a week from Romans through Philemon. As I’ve been studying his letters in Romans and Corinthians, I’ve felt for the last couple months God has been leading me in a different direction than I had originally thought. Studying 2 Corinthians 2 this week opened my eyes to what God has been speaking to me all along. In verse 12-13, Paul wrote, “Now when I came to Troas for the gospel of Christ and when a door was opened for me in the Lord, I had no rest for my spirit, not finding Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I went on to Macedonia” (NASB).
Even though there are open doors for me to continue ministering online, I have not felt at peace in my spirit lately. As I shared last week, God has answered a long time prayer by bringing my husband closer to Him. From the moment God called me to start writing five years ago I have prayed I would not be alone in ministry, ministering apart from my husband and children. I know for a time it had to be, but I feel God is answering that prayer now as He is drawing me and my husband, and our children, closer together than ever before. So I must prayerfully stop writing for now as we seek the Lord together for His will. I don’t know yet where He will lead us or if He will lead me to resume writing again. But I trust that He will always direct us in the right path, as Proverbs 3:6 promises “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Thank you to all the contributors and readers here who have graciously welcomed and encouraged me through the years. I pray God’s blessings to be continually upon this site and that He’d continue to lead people to Christ and into a deeper relationship with Him.
Blessings to you all,
