On hiatus

I once read somewhere in a comment about weblogs, that with the advent of the Internet, podcasts, and their kin, everyone can be heard. But does everyone have the right to be heard?

Not everyone in the world needs to know my thoughts. And how many biblical proverbs warn about blabbing or speaking too quickly rather than choosing one's words wisely? A good portion of the time I post stuff on here as soon as it comes to my mind, rather than actually thinking it through and praying about it and working it out in my life. That's stupid. So unless I've got something actually informative about my life to say or something that would actually edify you while you read it, I think Beloved Before Time is going to go on hiatus. It's not dead; merely it's going to sleep a lot more. Check back, please. There will be fresh stuff here from time to time. But I actually want your time spent reading this--if there is anyone who reads this anymore--to be constructive, a service to you.

In the meantime, you've got three wonderful options:
1. If you simply want to keep up with the more frequent goings-on of my life, please read my other blog at
2. If you want to use your time much more constructively, please purchase a copy of Operation World and spend ten minutes praying for a nation of the world, especially Turkey.
3. If you're still interested in the thoughts in my head regarding theology and its implications in our daily lives, grab some books by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Eugene Peterson, Richard Phillips, John Piper, Martin Luther, A. W. Tozer, or the Puritans. Or you can check out the links to the right side of this page.

Thanks to all who read this.

I am a musician who has been heavily influenced by Keith Green. I would be honored if you would check out my music. All music on my site is free for download.

I don't mean to be a pest, so if this message is an annoyance, please delete it and accept my humblest of apologies. I just want to share my music with people who love Jesus.
