The past couple of days have been spent finishing up a ‘book’ of the Easter Week serialI posted back in April.

If you didn’t catch the series during Holy Week, you can download it now in PDF format. If you missed any of the ‘books’ I’ve posted, they are all together on z….wait for it…. books page!

Once more I must remind myself why I’m posting the stuff I write online. Years ago, when writing first became a priority for me I made a commitment to put everything in God’s hands and allow Him to have total control over it.

The deal (covenant) was, I would listen and then write down what I was given, publish it in any format available to me, and allow him to determine who looked at it, and who did not.

Let me just say, it hasn’t always been easy.

The me in me wants to watch the stats to see how many hits the stuff I post receives. Admittedly, I peek every so often. It’s always a mistake. When there are lots of hits, for instance close to Easter or Christmas, I’m elated and excited about what I post.  When there are almost no hits, like during the spring and summer, I get discouraged and question the validity of spending the time and energy required to keep everything updated.  When I peek, it’s so much harder to produce new material, even though I know God’s in charge.  I have to remind myself — If even one is touched by what I write… If even one is influenced for Christ… ONE is enough!

What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray.

Matthew 18:11-13 RSV
