New Project; A Journey with Acts

Greetings Readers, 

It has been a while since my last post, other than the reflection I shared the other day, and I have been on a Journey.  Recently, I've been quite busy writing content for different ministry partners, with Finding Philemon, and working on a new book project with one of our writers from Love The Saints Ministries. (This will be a gift for all of the pastors we encounter through that ministry. It will focus on the story of Jacob and how his life can encourage pastors today.) 

This post, however, is about another project. This project is more of a personal project. You see, I'm been praying a lot recently about something I can do to engage my own faith a little more.  I love writing for my different clients for my freelance business and I love writing for our ministry partners, but I've been missing my own time with God more and more. 

The other day I told my wife, I needed to do something more for myself and that I'd been praying about it for some time. I am pleased to say I have come up with an idea, and I'd like to share it with everyone I can. So if you will take the next step with me, here is what I am feeling lead to pursue...

I am calling it "A Journey with Acts", I know not my usual pray on names, but it shares what I want to get across. "A Journey with Acts" is gong to be a pretty intense project. I am planning to read, or watch, the book of acts word for word and write a short reflections on every verse I read. Then I'm going to share the reflection here, at "The Gathering Room" on a weekly basis. There may be some weeks in which I write on more that one verse, but the plan to get through them all. 

Now this project has been coming for a while and even though I've waited until now to share it with you. It's been in the works for a few months. It started as a small nudge in my heart, but has grown into something I really believe in doing. My prayer it that as it encourages me, It will do the same for those that read each Reflection.

Honestly, I know there are going to be weeks when I struggle, especially with everything else that is going on, but I am determined to keep going as long as it takes.  Then I will move on to another book and then another. Eventually, I want to make through the entire Bible, but we'll see how "A Journey with Acts" goes for now.

If you willing to join me on this Journey, I promise to pray for you and ask that you do the same for me. My hearts in this and I know that I'll need encouragement along the way. Don't worry though, when the Lords leads, there will still be a #DevotionalBlog for me to share. 

Well, that's all for now.  Keep your eyes open.

Blessings in Christ and thanks again for visiting us at "The Gathering Room"

 Stand Strong and continue to believe the teachings given to you... (2 Thes. 2:15b NCV),
