I Am Coming Back...

Wow! It has been over a year since I have blogged. Yet now I sense that it's the time for me to come back. I am coming back not just to blogging but to myself. I have been gone for far too long. Where have I been? I've been in survival mode, working multiple jobs, serving as a local pastor and being a husband of one wife and father of four children. The weight of it all began to wear me down and lull me into a walking death. A sort of separation from some of the things I like as reading for fun and hanging with family and exercising for life.

I am currently on a soul sabbatical. It's been a about a month now and it has been good. During this time I did not go to church every week, I took time to be with my wife and family more, I been reading books for enjoyment and I returned to the gym. I am better over all. I'm coming back. I have the sense that this resurrection Sunday, other wise know as Easter, is especially significant to me.

Tomorrow, "Easter" Sunday, will not be just about the resurrection of the biblical Jesus. But it will also be about my personal resurrection. Resurrection from the death of survival mode. I will celebrate my own resurrection; I will  experience my standing up again to face the world on it terms yet being informed and empowered by the Holy Spirit standing up in me. I hope that you too will also claim personal resurrection for yourself.  He rose....

Before  I leave this return blog I'd like to thank my wife for her encouragement and courage to follow the voice of the Holy Spirit in her. Unith's blog CoreWorks had been a consistent source of inspiration for me. Check it out.... http://coreworkulm.blogspot.com   I also want to thank my friends who wrote their books, are writing their blogs and launching their business. I salute you now as I come back to your humble ranks to positively influence this world for God and good.  OAM 3-30-13
