My Work Here is Done

endI’m not planning on blogging anymore, but I hate to say I’m ending it – sounds to final.  Perhaps we should say I’m “suspending” it like the various candidates who have suspended their presidential campaigns.  Of course suspending usually means they’re done for good.  Have any politicians ever “unsuspended.”  I can’t remember any.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy blogging, but rather that I think that my work here is done. I began this blog two years ago with several objectives in mind including:
– getting my thoughts clear on the relationship between wellness and discipleship
– creating a small body of work on the topic without trying to write a book
– using up some creative energy and having fun writing and managing a web site
Check, check and check!

Have you noticed the authors who write a very popular book but then never say anything different?  Sure more books come, but not more new ideas.  Often the later books repeat the same essential message with new stories or a slightly different twist.  I hate that and am not interested in being one of those guys.  I like to keep moving forward into new territory, which I think has happened between More Health Less Care, The Love Fight and Grace Based Wellness.  Now I think I’ve adequately covered the big picture of that last topic, and the more I’ve done so, the simpler it has seemed to me.

The bottom line – seek and you shall find.  Seek wellness for sure, but subordinate that to seeking after God.  Seek his kingdom first, and wellness, perhaps even health, will come.  The rest is just details.

I hope you have enjoyed or otherwise benefitted from this blog and I intend to leave it up (it’s only suspended after all) and please let me know if I can do anything to help you personally to be well.  Thanks for reading.

Sincerely,

Pete
