I Don’t Get Sick

I don’t get sick. That’s why it’s such a surprise that I have been on my back almost the entire week. I literally don’t think I did a single work-related activity this entire week. It’s pathetic (and a bit scary because I am self-employed and my ability to pay the bills is directly tied to my ability to work!)

Actually, I lied. This morning I did a work-related activity. Yesterday a very important client called and asked to meet with me at 9 AM this morning. Though I didn’t sleep at all last night, and was so dizzy I could barely walk, I didn’t think I could cancel this meeting because I had no way of letting them know I wouldn’t be able to make it. So I went to the meeting and sat there, alternatingly sweating and shivering. I really remember almost nothing about what we discussed except that they want a whole new site by March 28 (I think). I hope I didn’t make too big a fool out of myself.

Anyways, all of this is to say, first, I apologize that the content of this site has been a little lacking over the past week. At least now you know why. And second, if you could be so kind, I would appreciate your prayers. I have deadlines looming and clients who will soon be getting upset with me.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.

    Why Those Who Seem Most Likely to Come, Never Come At All

    It is something we have all observed at one time or another and something we have all wondered about. Why is it that those who seem most likely to come to Christ so often reject him? Why is it that those hear the boldest invitations and who have the greatest opportunities so commonly turn away?…
