Sorry For Being Absent

I know a lot of you are probably wondering where I’ve been the past several weeks. I’ve been neglecting my blog and I feel awful about that.

I let Satan get the best of me and allowed him to distract me from my blogging responsibilities.

This blog really is important to me. I truly want others to come to Jesus through this blog. But I can’t neglect my blog like I’ve been doing the past several weeks.

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Romans 10:14-15

And even if only 1 person comes to Christ through this blog, I will thank the Lord!

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Luke 15:3-7

Christ in Me, Jeremy Camp
So come and empty me
So that it’s you I breathe
I want my life to be
Only Christ in me
So I will fix my eyes
‘Cause you’re my source of life
I need the world to see
That it’s Christ in me
That it’s Christ in me
Done with what holds me down
The things I once was chasing after
Throw off these heavy chains
That I have let become my master
So now I’m running free
Into an ocean of mercy unending

  1. Hi Leigh, I am new to this “blogging” world. My college professors and an owner of a large health care facility here in West Michigan worked on me for about 6 months until I finally (after much prayer) decided that this is what the Lord would have me do with the gifts that he has given me. I landed upon suffering as a result of chronic pain, years of surgery and my walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. I received some very positive responses, and as I began to write my fifth chapter, I began to find myself discouraged and struggling with feelings of inadequacy. Satan made it clear to me that this, after all, was just “all about me” that I really should no longer write. I basically decided to give up this crazy writing thing with the blog. A sister in Christ who had no idea what I was going on in my heart and mind wrote to me using private messenger (PM). She told me that she felt impressed by the Lord that she should encourage me. Especially by encouraging me in writing my blog. I felt so blessed and encouraged by her effort that I completed my fifth chapter and published it. Another sister (unrelated) wrote to me after the publication of my Fifth Chapter in my blog and told me that she normally did not read blogs because she was not good at making insincere compliments. But she felt prompted to read my blog due to the topic. She then went on to say, “I felt that I was reading a good book that I didn’t want to put down. You are a gifted writer, and you drew me into your experiences in a way that made me care about what you had to say. Thank you for sharing, and I thank God for you, for your writing, and for giving me a little push to read it.” Connie Smith. I shared all of this with you (and I realize that it is long) because I want to encourage you just as I have been given a piece of courage. If you are effectively reaching a group of people, and you Leigh are then Satan is threatened by this and wants to see it stopped. To God be the glory because he decides to use such frail vessels to speak his truth to a variety of ears. Blessings my friend Leigh and I enjoy what you have to share, and I always look forward to hearing from you. Please keep that in mind when (1st) the variety of conflicting responsibilities and (2nd) the errant words not sent by your redeemer reach your ears and (3rd). The thoughts of discouragement get in your way. Step back and listen because (I guarantee) the sweetest words of courage come from our Lord. Blessings, Gary painmytravelingcompanion.wordpress.com
