Man of My Word

Tomorrow I will be checking out of the blogging world for about 5 days or so because my family and my extended family will be going on vacation.

With all my traveling, I was able to get 9 free tickets for the family.

In previous vacations, I always brought my computer because I had to work on the sermon for the following Sunday (this is when we had a smaller staff). I would also check e-mail as often as I could because I thought things would fall apart without me. But now I have given up trying to be the “messiah.” The more I am doing church, the more I am realizing that God does not need me. Sometimes this gets confirmed when the church grows when I am not there… ha!

For this vacation, Christina asked me to do 2 things:

1) Not to bring my computer
2) Do not preach the Sunday I get back

In order to honor her and the family, I agreed.

I want to be a man of my word… so after the first 2 days of having withdrawal symptoms, I should be fine 🙂

I will start blogging again when I get back.
