out of pocket


who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
unless the Lord had been my help,
my soul would soon have settled in silence.
if i say, "my foot slips,"
your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up.
in the multitude of my anxieties within me,
your comforts delight my soul.
-- psalm 94:16-19

hi, friends.


i am in the last days of my business program and will likely be quiet here for the next week or so. my final draft of the business plan is due next wednesday, i will give my presentation to the faculty panel next friday, and my second thesis project, which i have decided will be a mini-book (perhaps 50 pages) on how to love and lead in an imperfect world, is due a week from tuesday.

it's a lot to accomplish in a short span of time, and i've been contending with many of my old demons this week, which has not made progress much of an accessible commodity. pray for me, if you think of it, that our God would break through the lies that grip me and bring his light to my soul and his easy yoke to my shoulders.

quick update: i sat at my desk today and hammered away at this and happened, without my even realizing it, to finish exactly half of the final draft of this business plan. that's half of a project that i've been working at for what seems like an eternity that i can actually say is done, finito, over, no more changes in this incarnation of its lifespan. whoa, nelly! how did that happen? oh, it must have been all the prayers my loved ones (including you!) have been offering up for me. thank you so much for your care for me in this place. i'm starting to see light at the end of this long tunnel! i may even be inspired to post more updates as i hit other milestones in this upcoming week! :-)
