Well, this is not something I look forward to saying, but God has been nudging me and pushing me towards this, and I just feel this is a step of obedience.
God has been leading me of late into cultivating spiritual dispositions like peace and love and compassion, and He has been trying to show me how to be humble and teachable in all of my dealings with people.
My problem is that right now, whenever I get on my blog – especially when I get debating – all of that stuff just goes out the window. I have been trying and trying to blog humbly…but I just cannot. Blogging, especially of late, has been bringing out the worst in me – self righteousness, pride, discompassion, and dogmatism devoid of love.
I especially need to apologize to Don, because my attitude towards him has been far from the brotherly love which I should have had. Don, I was wrong to put winning an argument ahead of my caring for you and a desire to foster a relationship. Will you forgive me?
As to the other aspects of blogging – I just feel like God is telling me to give it a rest for a while. I don’t know how long, but I just need to let go of this while He works on my heart. Hopefully someday I will be humble enough to blog with a good attitude: but for now I cannot and so I don’t feel peace about continuing to work on the blog.
I know some people will be disappointed: so am I. Please pray for me, that God will get His work done quickly, so that I can come back that much sooner!
I love you all, and God bless!
