I find inspiration for sermons and bible studies in the strangest of places and I often write short notes to myself and place them on or around my desk. I also pick up books that I want to read at some point and stack them up by my desk. This past week I found myself drowning in all the notes I had accumulated on my desk. I also discovered that I had a stack of books that would have made Yertle the Turtle proud. On top of that my head was spinning with ideas.
So, I took a couple of days last week to begin to outline a plan for the coming 12 months of Sermons. If nothing else, I would at least de-clutter my desk and more importantly my head!

Feel free to grab a book and read along. Who knows where we will end up?
I feel much more organized and definitely de-cluttered.
And of Course as I read … I’ll be taking notes and leaving them on my desk … which means the desk will get cluttered … again … but I am use to that.
Can’t wait to find out what God has in store … for me … and for us.
