Finding A Rhythm

I realize it’s been a while since I have posted anything. I know this a major taboo in blogging. ┬áIt’s not that I haven’t written anything, just haven’t made it public.

I guess I’m still trying to find my rhythm. When to post? How much? You would think I would have found my groove by now since I have had this blog site up for a couple of years now. But obviously, I’m a bit slow.

As I think about trying to get back on some sort of schedule, whether that be posting something once a week or prayerfully not, once a year, I am reminded of something I heard from Cleophus J. LaRue, professor of Homiletics at Princeton Theological Seminary. In regards to standing up and preaching, he said, “Are you up because you have something to say? Or are you up because you have to say something?”

I hope that as I occasionally write, and as I preach and teach as well, that I am doing so out of an overflow of being intimate with God. Granted, I know there are times that I put words on a page and stand up and teach just because that is what is expected, and I understand the importance of discipline in doing so. However, I pray that I will “crawl into the cranium of God to a acquire the Word of God and crawl of of the cranium of God to deliver the message (whether writing of speaking) wither fervor and conviction because of being in an intimate relationship with God” (Doctrine That Dances, p. 109).
