As we roll to and through yet another Reformation Day here on this side of the inevitable victory in every realm, area, nook and cranny of creation, there are a few things I’d like to take a moment to share as we all savor the moment, contemplate the opportunities, and tackle the mission that our King has given us here and now in the specific time and place in which He’s purposefully placed us.
First off, I want to say thank you (!) to those of you who’ve supported us through prayer, encouraging words and financial support – especially over the past several months, which have posed all sorts of challenges, including an unexpected residential move from one rental home to another as we simultaneously prep for the arrival of Baby Buss #3 (Sebastian David) in late November or early December. Add in some insanely (and also unexpected) long office hours over the spring, summer, and into the fall, and you can see why your patience, grace, prayers and support have been so appreciated.
With all of the abnormally time-consuming items dominating much of the past several months, there has been far less time than usual to write and post here. Lord willing, that should finally change in the third week of November. Until then, I will definitely do what I am able when I am able, but it could be almost Thanksgiving before I can really, truly and finally get back into a solid, normal-ish groove again. Hopefully, late November will not only see the return of a daily posting routine, but also the resumption of the FBC podcast.
Please don’t take any of the above chronicling of recent challenges as a complaint. Far from it! We’re very excited and thankful as a family to have the opportunities that we’ve been blessed with over the past several months – crazy time juggling requirements included.
There’s so much to do!
There’s a kingdom – The Kingdom – to advance on every front over every enemy in every realm and on every square inch of land in all of God’s creation, and He has been pleased to use us to do it! How cool is that?!
On this Reformation Day of 2016, I want to encourage you as so many of you have encouraged me and my family to keep swinging for the fences, fighting the good fight, running the race, and doing whatever you are able to advance the Kingdom of God with whatever He’s given you, all by His grace, all for His glory, and all to the eternal benefit of His people.
There’s a whole lotta awesome, important, beautiful work to do, so let’s get to it! Rome wasn’t conquered in a day.
