I have a blog post in mind that I’ve been thinking about since June 17. Things changed on June 18 when I agreed to post An Open Letter To Beth Moore. In the fallout following that post, I wrote articles to address the responses (and vitriol) my co-signers and I received as a result of our questions.
Last week I felt too tired to do the post I’d planned. That, and I just didn’t sense that the timing was quite right. 4th of July was coming, and I wanted to celebrate! I also wanted to caution American readers against incorporating our patriotism into our worship of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Friday I was physically tired as well as uncomfortable in my wheelchair. When I’m not positioned properly, typing is enormously difficult, particularly the intensive typing required when I write a blog post. For me, blogging is highly physical work. I love doing it, mind you, but I often get tired and sore from doing it.
As Michelle Lesley’s timeline of events with Beth Moore shows, Friday and Saturday were very busy days for those of us involved in the Beth Moore saga. Ironically, Beth’s two-sided “explanation” of her views on homosexuality bring me back to the blog post I’ve wanted to write since June 18.
So I went to bed last night looking forward to writing that blog at last.
Then this morning my Personal Care Attendant called out. With me lying helplessly in bed, John frantically started calling our back-ups. We had a 10:30 interview with someone to fill in the next two weekends while my weekend PCA is on vacation. As it ended up, she came and got me out of bed. It went well enough that she stayed to do paperwork for the temporary job. Praise God for His provision!
But by then I’d lost two hours of my day. Doing the article I’d planned was absolutely out of the question. So I have to hope that tomorrow accommodates my plans a bit better.
The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps. ~~Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

Please do not despair. As my husband reminds me, if you are right before God you need not worry about what others think if they attack. I have yet to see any ugliness/unBiblical attitudes coming from the writers of the letter. Any. I can’t say the same for the recipient.
Hi Debbie Lynne. Thank you so very much for your blog posts. Great article. Yes the Lord always provides according to His plans. Have a blessed day. Jo :o)
