The Deuce Part Deux?

I can hear the outcry now: “Where’s the Deux?!?”


Well, it’s still cooking.  I know what I stated a week ago: “What is posted here is the first part of our conversation (heavily edited for time and shenanigans) with part 2 currently slated to post next Monday, November 24th.”  It turns out that that was my plan.  I think the Lord chuckles to Himself from time to time when we try to make our plans.  He obviously knows what’s up WAY more than we do.  So, we defer to Him and His timing.

In trying to put together a smart (ass, perhaps?), engaging, relevant, honest, transparent podcast, I ran out of time.  Plus, I don’t have the magical capabilities to make such a podcast; that’s the Lord’s doing.  And while I would love to publish what I have put together, I gotta abide in the Vine, and follow the Life.  What does that mean?  We don’t feel like the Lord has given us the green light to publish this podcast.  I could give excuses such as we’re packing up to take December off, we’re in the last weekend with the group we’re planting right now, I would like to sleep every now and then, and I could give sincere sentiments like we don’t want to recklessly and flippantly just publish anything concerning Jesus Christ and His Church, but the truth is we really believe the Lord is pushing the pause button on this.

The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. ~ Proverbs 16:9

So, pretty, pretty please accept my humble apologies.  I’ve learned (more than once now) not to put time expectations on things.  When you let the Lord lead, you never know when or where He will lead you.  Therefore, it’s rather helpful to be open and not try to stick God in a box.  Will Part Deux ever be posted?  I strongly believe that it will be, but I just don’t know when.  But when it is, we can bet that God will have done a work in our heart to better receive it.  And I’m not just talking about you, the listener; I’m really talking about those of us who “conversationed” for the podcast.  The Lord is after our heart more than our words, so we wait.  We wait on Him, and we move only when He moves.

Thank you for your understanding, and have a fantastic Monday!  Talk to you tomorrow. (Lord willing!) 😉

    I’m not sure that I understood. Are you pausing the podcast (no more conversationing indefinitely ) or are you just suspending “the Duece”? Please don’t stop the conversation. It is what drew me to the 3rd Race. To me, it is what makes me feel extra connected to you- I(we) meet the Person(S). Your conversation is so much better than just reading words from an individual. Your conversation never stops between each other- like the conversation that paused the Duece. Please don’t hide your conversation- stay visible transparent. Please keep me/us in “the conversation”. I don’t want to go back to just reading words.

      Hey, Tony! We’re just pausing The Deuce. I thought I had it ready to go, but we felt the Lord ask us to slow down a minute. We really enjoy doing the podcast, and it truly is just hitting the record button while we sit around and talk together. However, since we’ve all “gone home” for the month of December, we won’t have a new podcast episode till after the First. However, we could still see Part Deux post in a couple-few weeks, or it could still be a couple-few months. We’ll just have to wait to see. 🙂

      (BTW, we really appreciate your participation with us in the conversation of this blog.)
