Introduction to Jim Stephens’ Blog – Notes From My Journey

Hey Everybody! Happy New Year! There’s a lot going on in my head and heart  that I want to share with my friends! So I’m starting 2021 with a determination to begin writing a blog post every week this year. The GraceNotes Daily Devotionals serve a specific purpose and require structure and discipline to stay between the fences and keep the focus on regular daily Bible Reading and writing devotional (Heart attitude and life application) thoughts on those specific scripture readings. I do my best!

But there is so much more I think about, pray about, and process—stuff that doesn’t fit into a structured devotional plan! This is stuff that matters to me as I live my life, think about the past and the future, and think about the ever-changing realities of the world we’re living in. This is stuff that I’m not always ready to share, but when I do reach some clarity, I’d like to pass on my thoughts and my process because I think many of you will be able to relate to it as well. Does that strike a chord with you?

So here’s the plan, friends! I’ve begun collecting a folder of thoughts, questions, musings, and ideas that seem like they’d be shareworthy at some point. I’ll write and post once a week, probably on Tuesday or Thursday. If I can do more, I will, but not more than two blog posts weekly. 

I’m assuming that if the GraceNotes Devotionals speak the language of your heart, you’ll find value in these further musings and thoughts. So I’m going to include GraceNotes subscribers in the weekly email of my blog posts. If at any time you either don’t want the blog articles or it’s just too much content to read, simply click the Unsubscribe Link at the bottom of the email.

I’ll start with a short series of posts from my thoughts on Luke 15 in which Jesus tells three stories: The Lost Sheep, The Lost Coin, and The Lost Son. The next post you receive will introduce the Lost Series with some thoughts on the story of the Lost Sheep. Watch for the Lost Series in your email inbox soon!

Practical stuff:

  • I’m going to try to keep these posts short because we all have plenty to read.
  • I’d love to know your thoughts on length, frequency, and even subject matter.
  • Please recommend my blog to others who might be interested.

Grace and Peace,  Jim Stephens
