Time for some quiet reading and studying, without distractions.
I’m going offline for a while. I deactivated my Twitter and Facebook accounts. I will refrain from posting on this site for an extended period. I’m going to spend more time on writing and studying for myself in the next several months or more. I had half-jokingly told a couple of friends I would solve some puzzling biblical issues. That was a couple of years ago and I still haven’t gotten to those. I will settle in and get to some thorough studying without the distraction that comes from the need to post something interesting every few days.
I enjoy reading the bible just for my own personal discovery. It’s time to re-acquaint myself with some of the biblical study tools that have gotten a little dusty of late. I have a pretty good-sized library that has been only slightly used of late.
I have been recently intrigued to learn that the great Isaac Newton spent many years in private study of the scriptures. It wasn’t until after his death that his detailed studies had come to light.
I will also return to my earlier love of reading fiction books. I had let that fall away with the busyness of life. Life is still busy but I am going to push myself away from too much computer time and replace it will good reading time. There is nothing like a good story. I hope to discover more good authors and story-tellers to help inspire my story-telling skills.
I will leave this site live so readers can check out the archives. There are over 400 articles. Please enjoy as many and as often as you like and share them on your social networks.
I was a quiet boy who barely spoke above a whisper in school. God surprisingly led me to speak to tens of thousands of kids and adults over a thirty year period in America and abroad.
Fear of speaking in public? Hah! I had that more than most and yet God showed me how to conquer it every time I stepped up to speak. Now its time to go quiet again; do some studying and reading and get ready for what comes next.
I know the road won’t always be easy, in fact I enjoy a good challenge. The end of the trail always leads to newer and often greater discoveries. I’m looking forward to the hike.
Talk to you later…
