I haven't posted here in quite some time. Since my last posting I've had inquiries into my abscence in the form of comments here and e-mails. I want to thank those of you who have thought about me and taken the time to say hello.
I'm making this post to let you know that I've returned to the blog I had been writing for a year prior to launching this one. It's a blog called Awaiting Rain. Back in April I felt like I would be walking away from that blog for good. But God has invited me to pick up the pen once again.
Here is an excerpt from this morning's post announcing my return:
This blog became a chronicle of my odyssey in this place. If you dig back through the pages you'll find the writings of a man lost in a familiar place. You'll hear the frustration of a man waking up to find all of the furniture had been rearranged in the night. You'll read the words of a man who had forgotten his own identity. Most of all you'll read the thoughts of a man longing for the kindness of God in a strangely foreign, dry and thirsty land where springs of cool, clear water used to abound.
A few months ago I laid down the pen. I had finally given up on my pursuit of the kindness of God, settled for exile, and turned my attention elsewhere. Today I am taking the pen back in my hand. In the last few weeks I have come to see that this odyssey has been God's pursuit of me more than my pursuit of God. And it is through the revealing and refining of my character that God has shouted his love and kindness to me.
If you are a subscriber here, I want to invite you to subscribe to Awaiting Rain. If you have A Look Beyond linked on your blog, I would be honored to have Awaiting Rain linked instead. I hope you will rejoin me at Awaiting Rain as important characters in my odyssey. Perhaps I can serve as an important character in yours.
