The Radical Experiment With All Its Challenges

Thanks so much for taking the Radical Challenge and I am finding it is indeed a challenge. We struggled to find our way through the first month, while at the same time engaging so many other readers and bloggers in the process. After all, who doesn’t want to be radical for Jesus, at least a little radical, right?

Taking a Sabbatical

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

Thank you so much for reading and sharing my blog.

 

I have entered a three month period of prayer and fasting. When I began prayer and fasting last week, God was abundantly clear that he wanted me to come away (from the normalness that is my life) and draw closer to him. Therefore, I have entered a season of silence, solitude, and prayer to seek his face and rest in the Lord’s presence.

 

This means that I will not be blogging or hanging in cyberspace until May 8 when we begin our Christian Atheist book discussion. If you have the book, start reading it. If you don’t have it yet, go out and get it. It’s sure to be a lively discussion.

 

During this time of absence, I wanted to remind you that the Naval Academy’s Summer Seminar and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) student summer program applications are online until April 1, 2012 and you can find out more about the school and its opportunities here.

 

I will continue the monthly update of our Radical Experiment with guest blogger Sophie A. Look for those on Feb 28, Mar 27, and April 24. Would love to hear how the challenge is changing you.

 

The ladies in the Women’s Mentoring Ministry at my church will be engaging Elisa Morgan’s She Did What She Could over the next few months, so you can jump in on that discussion here.

 

My hubby has done a great job is setting up categories on the lower left hand side of the homepage and a search option at the upper right. I hope you enjoy the archives (some of them might actually be good).

 

In the meantime, I’ll be fasting, praying, reading, and writing. I fully expect God to do great things and look forward to reconnecting with you in May.

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Prepare for War!

Sometimes I have to write an honest and solemn post, and today is a day for one of those. Life these past few days have been tough. To put it plainly, I have been under spiritual attack in my body, relationships, and ministry, in addition to the regular day-to-day challenges. I suppose I could complain, roll over, play dead and wallow in self-pity if I didn’t know my Father, his affections towards me, and what he has for me to do. I suppose I would do all of that if I wasn’t watching and praying or if I didn’t see the enemy working overtime to stop the work of my hands. I suppose I would surrender if I were uncertain of the end, but I am not uncertain. I am sure that regardless of the enemy’s schemes, I win.
