Sometimes the spans between posts go long.
I am glad that there are folks who want to read what I want to write, and are patient even though disappointed when they come upon a post that has grown several days stale.
But sometimes I can't write what I want to write.
You see, I've made a commitment to say A Prayer Before Blogging, and some of the things that I want to write before saying that prayer cannot be written after.
It isn't always a lack of ideas, or writer's block, or a deficit of inspiration that stops the posts from igniting the pixels on your monitor. From time to time, it's compliance in the face of inspiration from the very Spirit I have asked to receive that prevents a post from being written.
To write it anyway would be defiant and selfish -much like Saul, unwilling to wait longer for Samuel, burning the pre-battle sacrifice himself to please God even though he knew it was against what God had commanded.
There was a time, I remember, when the instruction to John of Patmos was to seal, and another time it was to reveal.
I need the discernment to know what time it is.
Bear with me.
Pray for me.
And I will bend the knee as well.
