Hi all. Thank you for reading this devotional blog. I have been writing at Shaped by the Word since late 2017. When I started, I envisioned a Bible-reading devotional that would be posted every day. This went very well in the beginning. I posted for over 500 days without missing a single day. I still cannot believe I did that!
As most of you are probably aware, I do have other responsibilities. I am a pastor of a rural church in Indiana and I am the father of a family with five young children. I have come to realize that the time needed to post quality devotional material every day is just too great with all of the other demands I have. You have probably noticed the recent struggle I am having to post daily content. So, I am asking for your recommendations.
I really want this page to be helpful to those who read it, so please offer your thoughts. I am thinking of different options on how to cut back on the amount of time I crate and post each week. A few options I am considering are below:
- I could post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week
- The devotional could be a weekly devotional posted on Sundays to give readers something for the week ahead
- I could do something like I mentioned in #2 above, but also post a mid-week devotional on Wednesday
- I could find several other writers to contribute, as I have done for the Psalm Saturday series that has been on-going (finding other contributors is not easy)
These are just a few possibilities. I am sure there are others that I have not thought of yet. What do you think? Will this page lose its appeal and usefulness if it is not a daily devotional? What ideas do you have that I could consider? Please share.
Thank you all for reading each day. I truly appreciate your support!
