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.

  • Evangelize 2024: Growing a Church That Proclaims The Gospel

    This week the blog is sponsored by Matthias Media. Does your evangelistic passion match the New Testament call to proclaim Christ’s name to all people? God calls on us to partner with him in “hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12) by laboring to make people ready for that day, having…
