31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. 32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran. 
(Genesis 11:31-32 KJV)

1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. 
(Genesis 12:1-3 KJV)

In Genesis 12 we read about the beginning of Abram/Abraham’s journey with God.  God called Abram, an idol worshiper, to become the father of a great nation—Israel.  Abram listened to God, however, he did not leave all behind as he was commanded.  Abram’s father, Terah and his nephew Lot journeyed with him and his wife Sarai/Sarah.  This was not a good idea.  Abram’s journey to Canaan was delayed until his father, Terah died.  Interestingly, Terah’s name means “delayed”.

Similar to Abram’s journey to Canaan, the Promise Land, entries on this blog have been delayed. However, that does not mean a lack of God working in my life.  During this rather unplanned hiatus I have been learning, growing, developing in my faith and actively serving the Lord.

Please stay tuned for more frequent posts—looking forward to what the Lord has planned for this year!

When have you experienced delays in your walk with the Lord?

Please join with me in prayer:

Father, Thank You for the story of Abraham and how delays are not the end of the story.  It is clear that You use delays to work in the lives of Your children. Help us to not fear and to simply obey Your clear word to us.  Thank you for using delays to grow us into the person You desire us to become.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

From My Heart to Yours,



  1. Delays? Oh, yes, I've had them, especially toward the end of last year in keeping with writing my novels. Now that I'm back at it, I see how the Lord was purposely granting me a time of rest and reflection to give me the energy and drive I need in these present moments.
    So glad to see you blogging again, Kim!
    Love and blessings!

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Martha, and for commenting! It sounds like you understand delays, particularly those that impact writing. I'm thinking it's good to be back to blogging.

      Love and blessings!
