For reasons I cannot explain, my spiritual year begins in December. Thus, I disconnect from the office every December 1st and spend some time with the King.
I start by spending a lot of time disconnecting from the rest of the world and the ongoing pressures of life, and I decompress physically as well. I do not rush into His presence.
Second, I explore everything I have learned about God in the last year and worship. This is an exciting time.
Then I listen to His analysis of my Kingdom work over the last year, and finally, we segue to my marching orders for the coming year.
It is a precious time, and this year my spirit is beside itself with anticipation. I get the sense it has gone ahead and peeked at some of the gifts that are awaiting.
This is a several day process. Because of that, there will be no Hebrew Worship blogs or Giver blog this week. We have a couple of non-time sensitive blogs that are in the pipeline, and they will be released by my staff some time during the week. All email traffic will be handled by Megan until I am back in the office.
I have invested significantly in you this year. Would you please reciprocate by setting aside some time to pray for my time with the King every day until I emerge again?
