I have always loved to read, and have had a desire to write. The biggest hurdles to achieving this goal were threefold.
1. I could not spell
2. I could not read my own handwriting and the most important reason:
3. I had nothing to say
After I was saved, I had the Preaching bug. I was sure I was the ‘new’ Jimmy Swaggart. I wasn’t, I turned around and no one was following.
In 2014, things changed. I bought my first Tablet. I still couldn’t spell, but the other problems were behind me. Plus I had my calendar and a camera with me at all times.
I started to write: A bold look at the Trinity in the Old Testament. Where / Who, was Jesus. I found someone to edit my writing, she suggested I start a blog. (My writing, did not impress).
I had never read a blog or had any interest in writing on the internet, I was a book guy. After much prayer, I felt the Lord was leading me in that direction.
My fleece? The name I desired be available. ‘the unfettered preacher’. It was, I began. In the 9 months left in 2014, I had 1500 visits to my blog… Wow, I was sure I found my calling.
Since then, my best year was 2016, 3980 visitors 13 thousand views with 8600 likes. I was impressed.
Then the numbers decreased. I wondered, did anyone actually read these posts? Was my writing doing any good at all? Was anyone brought closer to Christ?
After all, that was why I wrote, with the hope that lives would be given to the Lord.
I am still wondering. What say you?
Thanks for visiting,

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
