This post is a follow-up from yesterday’s post,“A Quick Update.”
Let me be the first to say that I am so motivated by those of you who sent in emails, messages, and support yesterday.
There were a lot. And I haven’t even read all of them.
But the ones I have read almost had me in tears.
Yesterday when I told you all that I was taking a little break from writing, I started receiving emails from many of you asking questions, wondering what was going on… but most importantly, you all were letting me know that you were praying for me, supported my decision, and let me know how this blog has helped you. Knowing that I serve on a platform where people love each other back is something I will always be grateful of.
This blog has always been a place to be transparent. And with that said, I’m going to be very, very transparent.
- I have not fallen into some sin that would hinder me from continuing writing.
- I have not left the local church, their leaders, or my local church where I lead worship.
- I’m not dealing with depression, conflict, or oppression from anyone or anything.
- What I am dealing with is a lot of pressure. Since writing Make Something, I’ve been thrown into a world of constant interviews, questions, reviews, and guest blog/speaking engagements. Don’t get me wrong: I wish I could do all of them. But my God, family, and local church ministry comes before any of these things.
I don’t want to get to a place where my personal platform becomes a bigger priority than the things I just mentioned. As of right now, I’m currently holding off any of my “next big things.” Only because I’m ready to take a little vacation and simply lead worship, work with people I love, and live life to it’s fullest.
Listen guys, life happens. We all know that. And I’m hoping that this little break will help me bring you some great content in the future. Again, I’m not saying goodbye, and don’t plan to for a long time. All I’m saying is – let me take a breather. Because when I come back, it’s gonna be for all the gold.
I love you all more than you know. I’ll see you guys when I see you guys. Peace!
