It’s been seven years since I created the content that eventually became my book 40 Days of Increase.
So much has happened since then. So, so much.
We’ve moved—lots (as if that’s a surprise to anyone, given our track record).
We bought a business.
We built and sold our house.
I was forced out of my job.
We’ve dealt with chronic health issues.
We stopped attending church.
We’ve seen marriages blow up, friends abandon their faith and things hoped for not pan out.
And those are just some of the big things we’ve personally navigated the past seven years. Layer on top of them all the things we’ve dealt with as a country and people: nasty politics, racial tensions, pandemics and lockdowns, wars, natural disasters, inflation …
It’s been a lot.
So where do I stand on the idea of perpetual Kingdom increase I so confidently wrote about now that I’m seven years further down the path—and possibly a bit jaded?
Does the increase of his government and peace still have no end?
Do I believe his leaven will still permeate every part of the dough?
