Friends of Faithful Stewardship,
It has been a very long time since this blog has had an update. The past 6 months have been quite tumultuous. In September, I received word that the company I work for in my day job lost the contract for the job I’ve been working for over 7 years. There was a long protest of the contract decision. In the end, it was finalized that last week would be my last week working that job. That final decision came just a couple of weeks before Christmas 2017… which made finding new work extra difficult due to the holidays.
We learned a lot during this time, and I plan on sharing much of what we learned in the weeks to come as we start getting this blog back into shape. Suffice it to say that this season has been a time of reflection and trusting in God to provide for us.
Romans 5:1-5 (ESV) Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
I’m thankful that He provided a position within my firm that allows for us to continue gainful employment. This new position will involve a lot of travel, which separates me from my wife and children for extended periods of time. So, I will be pouring some extra time into this blog site. I look forward to getting caught up with the Top 20 CCM songs for DiM work, but I also want to get back into some of the CTT stuff. I’ve also been asked to serve as moderator for a couple more Facebook groups, so I get to engage with folks more directly in theological matters. The next few blog posts I have in mind will reflect some of the engagements I’ve had in social media over the past several months.
So, I need to get working on a few blog entries this week and I hope to start publishing next week, Lord willing. In the meantime, thank you for reading this far, and thank you for all of the prayers and encouragement.
Romans 16:24-27 (ESV) Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith— to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
In Christ Jesus,
