This is just a personal update.
Forgive me for not writing or posting anything since February! A lot has happened since then and I’d just like to let you in on it.
A new blog name (and domain name!)
Early this year I got the conviction of changing the domain name to something other than my name. When I first started the blog I was modeling my site after a mentor’s site (who uses their name) and since I already had the domain name “LarryPittman.com” (the old domain name), it just seemed like the right thing to do.
The moral of the story is: “Don’t always do something just because someone you highly respect is doing it.” We always need to be deliberate about our decisions and put them before the Lord!
The Lord gives and He takes away (Job 1:21)
Another change that directly impacted my time for this blog was work. The Lord answered my prayer one day and almost doubled my workload. This was a real financial blessing, but it took away a lot of my time, of course.
By the end of September, however, I was informed that they no longer needed my services and I was promptly let go at the end of the month. I was no longer receiving a regular paycheck, but suddenly I had freedom! Isn’t it funny how that works?
This leads me to think that the thing Paul learned, which is located in Philippians 4, is well worth seeking:
Philippians 4: 11 “Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have.”
I’m not where I want to be yet at “being content”, but I am much better than where I was years ago.
Thank you for being one of my readers and partners!
Thank you for pursuing Jesus with your whole heart. That’s what this is all about. As I keep seeking Him I just want to work with others that do the same.
Psalm 105: 4 “Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!” (ESV)
