Walking Away.

Feb 7, 2008


I’ve hit a wall. 

I don’t know what it is, but it’s been a TOUGH sermon writing week for me.  And as many of you know, the WEEKEND PRESSURE that hits right around this time of the week can be is HORRIBLE. 

So, I’m going to do what I always do when this happens.  Something very, very spiritual… 

Ben & Jerry’s and a little DVR action.  Perhaps LOST or Celebrity Apprentice.  Or both. 

And then some more ice cream. 

Sometimes you just have to walk away…

    glad to hear the sermon writing has gotten better…

  2. you big baby. Just do what everyone else does when they get in this predicament:
    download a sermon off the internet.

  3. Feel free to walk on over to and download any of mine to use Sunday :) I’m cheaper than Warren or Hybels – but you get what you pay for!

    Stuck in a spot…can’t come up with the message….that’ll preach!

    Maybe you aren’t supposed to preach? Maybe you just get to lead everyone into a time of waiting on God?
    Just because it’s scheduled doesn’t mean it has to happen. :)

    I feel your pain…

    Ha ha…totally! Been there, done that.
    That was one of the more important things I had to learn when working creatively (and it goes for more than just writing sermons). If I’m getting bogged down just pushing through only makes it worse.
    Sometimes, you’ve just got to walk away. Good advice.
    Enjoy your ice cream and LOST! :-)

    Lost Lost Lost!
    Thanks for sharing that you have a time during the week that you “hit this,” makes me feel more confident with my “hit this” time I’m discovering.

    Yep. It is not a performance. You just have to sit back and let GOD do the work.

    I appreciate your insight. I’ve been in the same boat myself. Sometimes you have to let your thoughts/ideas/passions/etc. marinate for a while and then go back to it.
    There’s nothing better to take my mind away than a pint of B and J’s oatmeal cookie chunk. That stuff will be at the marriage supper of The Lamb!
