I would like nothing more than to simply sit in front of my computer all day, and answer every comment, question or query personally. I enjoy the fellowship. I realize full well that there are some who are in need of counsel, who are in need of an encouragement, direction and teaching.
Sometimes I wish I could tell the sun to stand still as Joshua did, extend the hours of the day so that I could get at least half the things I have on my list, done. No matter how hard I try, the sun continues its journey, dusk arrives, then darkness, and I find myself at two or three in the morning still typing away, still reading, still studying.
To those who have felt slighted for not receiving a personal reply from me, I apologize. I am one man, who is trying his best to balance a ministry, an orphanage, close to one hundred employees on two continents, speaking engagements, radio interviews, newsletter publishing, book writing, and the list goes on.
I am not bragging about how much I do, I am just trying to make some understand that this web log, is a small part of the whole. I get some comments, written in anger and frustration, stating that 'when I get a ministry, I'll respond to everyone personally, I'll take the time', and my prayer is that those of you who have written such e-mails will have the strength to keep your promise. I would take the time, if there was time to be had.
Today I fly to Kansas, and I still haven't shaved, showered or packed. If not for the cup of coffee my wife brought me a few hours ago, I would have had nothing to eat or drink since I woke up at six am.
My life is not filled with glamor and adventure, I don't have ghost writers penning my articles or books, and if my name is signed or typed to anything, it was me who wrote it.
To those of you who are seeking counsel, I have been reading the posts of a few of the brothers, and I have seen wisdom and understanding in their writings. If I am unable to respond to you, and they do, please do not feel slighted. We are a family, the body of Christ, and each of us is trying their best to do their part in the light of the gospel.
I just had to get that off my chest before I left for this weekend's speaking engagements. May grace surround you all, may wisdom guide you on your journey, and may Jesus always be your destination.
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
