It’s the start of a brand new weekend of blog posts here at #CountUp, as weekends begin on Thursdays and end on Mondays. I’ll have my usual assortment of blog posts on Friday, Sunday, and Monday, so let’s kickoff this weekend with my Thursday blog post. This is a spontaneous “anything goes” blog post. I have no idea what I’ll be writing until I hit the keys on the keyboard.
So I’ve entered the 14TH year of my salvation. Lord may this new season of this journey bring me steadily closer to You through Your Word – reading and studying and understanding Your Way – the only Way forward towards Your light. May others hear about Your Good News through my writings – through my testimonies – through my sermons. May they too be brought to You, and be rescued and saved by You. In Your loving name I pray this to You – AMEN.
My next sermon is just about complete. I need to tighten the ending of it, as it’s running just a little bit long right now. My Lead Pastor wants our goal (for himself too) to preach sermons that are closer to 35 minutes in length rather than 45 minutes or more. Right now I’m too close to 45 minutes. My sermon has a new title too – “Neco & Nebuchadnezzar”. It’s all about the 23-year fall of the Kingdom of Judah from the day that King Josiah was killed at Megiddo to the day of the invasion and destruction of Jerusalem.
I’m also working on my next sermon after that – “Ways & Memes” – which will be a first-of-a-kind sermon for me that physically takes me away from the pulpit for the first time. I’ll share more details on that in a few weeks.
This will be another relaxing stay-at-home weekend for me (after work on Thursday and Friday). I’ll do Bible Study (includes sermon writing), and I’ll catch-up on DVR and Hulu watching. I’ll also update various Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. I’ll pay some bills too. Maybe even do some laundry.
So that’s where we are right now on this 22ND day of August of 2019. Go forth and enjoy this day, and come back here tomorrow for my normal Friday blog post that goes RETRO.
