Am I Saying What I Want or What I Should?

It’s been nearly a month since I posted a non-cartoon post. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to say anything but that that I wasn’t convinced that what I wanted to say was the right thing to say.

I’m convinced that God wants to use me to share with you. I’m convinced I have things I’m supposed to say.

I’m also convinced that I’ve done a poor job of utilizing what I believe as a filter for what I say.

I recognize that in order to fulfill my purpose I have to maintain and grow my audience. However, in the last six years of having this blog I’ve been much more likely to alienate the very people that I wanted to reach because I’ve selfishly said whatever I wanted to.

Jeremiah says this is stupid,

But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve. (17:10)

I deserve terrible judgment for my selfish motives and actions and for taking my gifts and calling for granted.

I’m sorry. I repent. I want to do better.

So the delay in blog posts really is about trying to find who I am in Christ so I can be who I’m supposed to be for you.

I’ll let you know as I figure that out.
