Blogging Withdrawal and Psalm 40

I have so much to do, but here I am, late at night, writing something on this blog – just to be doing it.

Have you ever had this feeling? Those of you who are fellow bloggers, have you ever just been so busy…so overwhelmed…so caught up with things that are more important…that you look at the tab on your computer that links you to WordPress with a sense of longing?

Pitiful, isn’t it?

Frankly, there are so many things I’d like to write about, but I’m too stinking tired to formulate my thoughts. I’d love to share what I think about politics, the Mayor in Houston, and Ebola, but there’s just too much – and my opinion wouldn’t make that much of a difference.

Remember how some others and myself went through the book of Proverbs one proverb at a time? I thought that it might be beneficial and interesting, at least to some, if I were to break down that chapter a verse or two at a time.

What if I pushed aside all the other distractions of this election cycle and spent some time expounding on Psalm 40? In my opinion, it’s a revival-focused psalm that we all could benefit from applying.

What do you think?

  1. I think that’s a good idea. Keep sharing the gospel, bringing internal change to the person’s heart, and then people will have a correct worldview towards public policy in society. That’s when you make a difference.

    • Thanks. That’s what I will do. I must not forget, nor must I hide the fact that preaching (expounding the Word) is my primary calling in life, not talking about crazy or irrelevant stuff. The other things have their place, but I must periodically take the time to get back to the basics and make the main thing the main thing.
