I think I’ve hit the wall. In the first month of writing Progressive Devotions, I’ve put every spare moment into it. It takes me about two hours a day to create the content for the site. I’m sure others could do it faster, but that’s where I’m at right now. Adding 12 hours a week to a job, Tuesday night jail ministry, and an adult Sunday School class I have to prepare for, there’s no time left in the week. Not only that, but if anything out of the ordinary comes up, it blows me out of the water. As a result, I’ve neglected some other important things and people in my life – especially my amazingly patient wife.
I plan to keep writing Progressive Devotions, so I need to adjust in a way that will keep me in it for the long haul. Several folks have suggested that I switch to a 5 day a week format and that’s what I’m going to do. I’ve been reluctant to do it because I want you to be in the Word every day. (I figured you would be in church on Sunday.)
Heather Markowski suggested, “…Friday’s devotion having a weekend long ‘project’ to do.” That sealed the deal for me. I’ll be adding a Weekend Workshop to each Friday’s devotional so you can work with the concepts we’ve discussed during the week.
Hopefully, this change will let me improve the content of Progressive Devotions and still have a life. I hope it doesn’t diminish your enthusiasm for the site. Keep coming back … and invite a friend. Thanks.
