It has been a while since I’ve posted–over a month to be precise. I imagine that all my readers (I know, the plural is a stretch) have been anxiously waiting for my next post (talk about an unfounded claim). Perhaps an exchange between both of them might sound something like this:
“I haven’t seen a post on Roman’s blog lately.”
“Yeah. I haven’t either.”
“He must be really into his next post.”
(As you can see, writing scripts is not my calling.)
Well, sorry to disappoint. A great post this is not. So why haven’t I posted in over a month?
World cup? Nope (but go USA!)
NBA finals? Nope. But this easily takes precedence over the world cup (Go Lakers!)
Minnesota Twins baseball? Absolutely not. All Minnesota sports teams annoy me (Go anyone playing a MN team!)
It has been and continues to be a busy ministry season. When I’m not working on church related stuff, I’m enjoying time with Julie and our kids. It’s great!
So check back in. I plan to get on a blog roll again rather quickly.
Before I close this out, however, I don’t want to leave you with a nagging sense (as you might already have) that you just wasted a few precious moments of your life. So I’ll leave you with this gem of a quote from E.M. Bounds in his Power Through Prayer, chapter 10 “Prayer and Devotion United,”
Prayer is the creator as well as the channel of devotion. The spirit of devotion is the spirit of prayer. Prayer and devotion are united as soul and body are united, as life and the heart are united. There is no real prayer without devotion, no devotion without prayer. The preacher must be surrendered to God in the holiest devotion. He is not a professional man, his ministry is not a profession; it is a divine institution, a divine devotion. He is devoted to God. His aim, aspirations, ambition are for God and to God, and to such prayer is as essential as food is to life.
