It’s been a long while since I’ve posted a new blog, so I thought it would be nice to post an update on existing projects for you all!
First, I need to tell you about my band. I haven’t mentioned this particular project in a blog since my first post, but I have been working hard at making this project a reality—with some invaluable help from my band mates. Our name is Out of the Invisible and you can follow us on facebook. We’re working on recording some music for your listening pleasure—we are talking with someone about recording right now—so, while there may not be any music, our facebook is the best way to keep updated about shows and other fun things. But we’re well on our way to recording; we’re even getting some new gear to toy around with to put our own special mark on the songs.
I feel the vision for this band is the driving force. While we want to make music that will have some hand in changing lives, we also want to do what we can off stage to make a difference. This is not just because we want to spur people on to get involved in charitable outreaches. We want to make our faith real in the places that lyrics and melodies cannot. If you want to be a part of that or have some ideas for projects to get involved in around the community, let us know!
Second, the novella that I promised to have done by year’s end is going very slowly. I’ve been busy with work and ministry stuff, but I also have not been pushing my free time toward getting it done. So, for those of you who are anxious to see it, I make this promise: I will start working on it every day during my free time. It may only amount to a couple of minutes a day on some days, but I will not let a day go by without getting some work done on it.
This also applies to my blog. I love posting here, but I haven’t been thinking hard enough lately to come up with frequent posts. It may not be writing everyday, but at least working on and forming ideas. I suppose this leads me to a few significant thoughts to help wrap this post up: Anything worth doing requires sacrifice on your part. Don’t get distracted from the thing that makes you come alive. Chances are, those distractions are keeping you from doing what God wants you to do help change someone’s life.
Until next time,
