So I did a thing. I launched a blog. I wrote reviews. Posted them on the internet. And told people to go and read them. I described the feeling to a friend that it felt like an earthquake in my stomach. But you know what? I’m happy and proud that I did it. I want to catch you up on what has been going on with me and the blog this week. I will also give you an update on what actions I am taking based on the books I’ve read and reviewed. Going forward, this will be a Sunday to Saturday update.
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
I wanted to intentionally take time to focus on God as The Creator. A couple of things I did was spend time in nature. I’ve spent more time outside to just breath in the air and listen to the birds. I’ve tried to take a step back and see God in every person, thing, and situation. A fantastic song that has lyrics that helps me focus on God is here:
Unlimited Memory by Kevin Horsley
Honestly, I haven’t had much time to use what I learned from this book. But maybe one day in the future.
Forgotten God by Francis Chan
One of my biggest questions from this book was, could people tell that I had the Holy Spirit in me without screaming it to the world? Did I appear different from non-believers? My prayer has been to have me be more aware of the Holy Spirit daily in my life.
Do More Better by Tim Challies
My Evernote was pretty much aligned to what Challies recommended. But I had extra folders and subcategories that wasn’t needed. I made some updates to my folders and have added the daily and weekly review. I haven’t been as successful with doing the reviews but as I am transitioning in my Sabbatical, I am back to my daily planning. I shared my Area of Responsibilities in my post, and I have been taken action on those items daily.
Erasing Hell by Francis Chan
I finally read the book of Revelation after talking about the 2nd coming in my Bible Study. It was my first time reading it through and actually seeing and trying to understand all of the imagery. It definitely still calls for a proper study of the book, but I feel like I now can understand the details a little better.
