After a Long Interval

Okay, if you've been 'following' my blog, you know I'm not a faithful blogger. That's not because I don't like to write. In fact, I've written ten books in the last twenty-two months - and published five already. And my books are good, very good.
Neither is the problem that I don't like doing bible study, the primary topic of my blogs. I love bible study. In fact, that's one thing that pops up in all my books - bible study in some form or another. I get into bible study. Sometimes I get so into it that I forget what else I'm supposed to be doing (like actually writing the blog!).
The true problem I have with blogging is that I don't have a passion for it. I have a passion for writing. I have a passion for talking with people, from one-on-one to large groups. I have a passion for studying the bible.
We find it easy to do the things we're passionate about, even if we don't get results. The things we aren't passionate about, we slog away at because we know we need to do it. When we don't have passion for something, we need results or we'll let it fall by the wayside.
I'll keep slogging away at my blog, but since I have no passion for it, I'll be realistic and transparent right now. Until I begin to know that I'm communicating with someone rather than just throwing something into the webosphere, I'll continue to be an indifferent blogger.
But I'm not an indifferent writer. If you haven't read any of my books yet, you should! You'll find much more depth in my books than I can do in my blog.
In the meantime, I'll eventually get more of the bible study on John posted to my blog.
