I am doing a great work and cannot come down …. (Neh. 6:3 HCSB)

A friend reminded me of this scripture a few days ago. [Thanks, Anita.]

Not only do I admire Nehemiah’s perseverance, I admire his ability to resist the temptation to get distracted and pulled away from his work.

Confession. For quite awhile now, I’ve let distractions keep me from completing some of the book projects that the Lord placed on my heart long ago.

I still believe in the importance of my online writing commitments. But I know now that I must allow some focused time for my other writing projects.

I’m not sure how long it will take me to get this next project on target, but until then I want to make this public confession, “I am doing a great work, and I cannot come down!”

So, see you on the other side!
