The Drought Has Ended

This past Sunday, I preached the first full sermons I’ve preached since November. That’s almost 10 months without preaching a full-length message. If God puts it in you to preach, it’s hard to shut up that long.

I took the suggestion from a friend of mine to contact a church that has had different preachers each week. I wasn’t sure how it would go, but they invited me back for this coming Sunday.

I discovered over these last several months that God had to restore the fire within me. There were some preparatory things God wanted to do in order to get me to where I would preach again with passion and compassion. 

Right now, I’m taking it week by week. I have our regular place of worship and the doors that God will open as He sees fit.

The Christian life is an adventure. If you think that following Jesus is dull, you’re not doing it right. Fully surrender and get ready for the ride of your life!

  1. I am so glad you got a chance to preach the word again. I am not serving in church now and have not done so for nearly 10 years. However, I get a chance to preach as often as I want to. I am going to have to cut back now in order to meet my publishing deadlines. Preach on Brother, preach on!

  2. How we see our desert experiences indeed determines what we do and how we live when God leads us out. You did very good and God has greater things for you! Jeremiah 29:9 “But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!”
