Brothers and sisters, pray for us. (1 Thessalonians 5:25 NIV)
Over the next two weeks, I’m redeeming every spare hour I can find to sequester myself to complete the final changes for my upcoming book, Unburdened, a book on moral integrity for men in Christian leadership (I use the term “moral” this time so those who have a filter for inappropriate content will still be able to read this blog).
As many of you know, we’ve had a number of challenges come against us in the last two seasons of writing at the end of 2014. The past few days have been no different. We’ve already had an alternator go out on one of our cars (requiring a tow truck) and an ill-timed upcoming visit for our son to the dentist. In any event, this has been the pattern over the writing of this manuscript, which leads me to believe the timing of these difficulties is related to my work on the manuscript itself. Could be an over interpretation on my part, but I would appreciate your prayers nonetheless.
If you’re willing, pray specifically for God’s provision for my family emotionally, protection from the Enemy, as well as clarity of thought for me to only write down words that are faithful to the essential message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Regarding the book, I only want my words to be His words as I seek to to support men in Christian leadership to intentionally pursue moral integrity as they go about their ministry calling.
I’ll take a break from writing in this blog next week. But after that, I hope to tell you more of the story about this book and the heart behind its message.
