This Week We'll Be Taking A Short Hiatus
Nearly four years ago, (after being urged to do so for some time by my wife Merideth) I published the first of hundreds of Daily Devos. At the time, I had no idea that all these years later I'd still be writing them.
The whole thing started with me just writing down some of my random thoughts about God, faith, the Bible and general theological reflections and sending them out via email to church members and friends for the season of Lent.
I fully expected to stop writing them after Lent that year, but by then all of the folks who were receiving them urged me to continue--so I did.
Now we send out close to 700 emails a day and reach a couple of thousand people through social media, Tumblr and my personal blog. It's amazing.
I have to tell you that sitting down to write these daily devotions (almost) every day has saved my life. And the fact that you all read them is a marvel to me.
Some of you even take the time to share with me how a particular devo has encouraged you, shaped your thinking, and even inspired you. Trust me when I say this: that means the world to me. Thank you.
This week I'll be on vacation with my family, so I'll be taking a short hiatus from writing devos. I'll be back writing and publishing them on July 8, and I'm hoping to have even more to talk about after a brief rest.
May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you now and always. Amen.
