I’ve now been blogging for over a year.
Wowser. I started in mid-November last year and have blogged an average of three times per week. That seems like a lot to me. Of course, when I started I posted frequently– four or five times a week; now I’m doing well if I get two in.
I’ve enjoyed it and benefitted from it. I’ve fought against the particular sins that blogging has made me prone to (or revealed in me) and come out better for it, although still always having to be on guard.
My goals have been twofold: primarily to refine and test my thoughts and opinions regularly according to godly, gospel standards. And secondarily, to edify the body through that. I think, by God’s grace, that has happened in some measure.
Still, I’m trying to decide where to go from here. Do I keep blogging? Do I take a break? Do I quit altogether? I think God could be glorified in any of those options. So, I’m thinking about it, talking to Mr. TommyD, and leaning on the Holy Spirit to convict in the areas where conviction is needed and also feeling freedom in Him to make a decision.
So that’s that on a year of blogging. And if I decide to take a break or quit, I won’t just drop off without notice. I’ll give a heads up. As of now, I’m going to keep writing as it’s beneficial for me.
Next up, healthcare reform.
My dad gave a talk about it a week ago and I thought I’d link to it because it was really good. It looks at the history of medicine and provides a foundation for understanding the current debate according to godly, ethical standards. It’s not short. But brevity and understanding history rarely go hand in hand. Sometimes it takes more than 22 words to get your point across. I hope some of you will invest your time in reading it.
