S04E100, Pausing Is Good for You!! Andy B 2 Minute Video
Well, that’s it - this is my 100th episode of Andy B 2 Minute Videos in this current season (and my 148th overall). We’ve only recently reached 1,000 posts across the BerryBunch, and now I’ve just finished my 100th episode of my weekday thought provokers. It’s a moment to celebrate what I’ve been able to do by the guiding, and providing, of God.
With this current season we saw the biggest changes to our online ministry:
- we’ve added another pair of studio lights
- we’ve invested in 2 x studio quality microphones
- we were blessed with a gift to buy BerryBunch t-shirts
- we were blessed with a gift to buy a studio camera
- we’ve added in brand new, funky jingles
I’m definitely no perfectionist, but I do like doing things to a high standard, especially when doing them for God and, at this point, I’m really thrilled with what we are able to produce in these short, weekday, devotionals. And I really like, with this current Season of Andy B 2 Minute Videos, that we’ve hit on what we feel is a good balance of everything necessary to make them come to life for you.
I also know the true value of taking a pause to recharge, refresh, renew, rethink, so, this will be my last one for a little while: God willing, I intend to return with more on Monday 22nd August, 2022, at 6pm as usual (UK time).
And, before too long, you’ll be able to read these devotionals, in the book that is so close to being published. I’m just waiting on a foreword by a friend, and a final spelling/grammar check.
What are enjoying, the most, in your serving God? Are you willing to give that back to God? Because, if you don’t, you’ll easily end up crushing the very gift He gave you. But, if you do, what might God give you in return? It might be the same desire or ministry. It might be something totally new. Either way, you win!
Just a thought...
So, another Andy B 2 Minute Video. And this is my 100th episode, of this particular Season, which is kind of exciting. It's a number. And it's worth celebrating such things.
Now, after this, I'm going to take a little bit of a break, because since August 2020, I have made 148 of these, including this one, so that's nearly two years and I've never really taken a break or a pause. There have been plenty of times when we, I haven't had an Andy B going out. We generally do them five days a week. But, I've never actually, deliberately, stopped. And that, I think, is quite important in our lives. We can keep going, and going, and going and if we never actually stop, how can God give us something different?
Now, I would like to think I'll come back in maybe a couple of weeks, maybe a month, I'll work it out. When you read my little write up for today, you will discover what that number will be. But, I've never actually, deliberately, intentionally, stopped and paused.
Now, BerryBunch is going to carry on, we've got lots of new projects, which are about to go Live again, from Marriage Matters to Endurance to Family Prayer Time, and other stuff as well. So, it's not like I'm gonna be doing nothing, I just won't be doing these little Andy B 2 Minute Videos.
Now we'll put out some old ones as well, that are quite popular. But, what's really struck me, is it's, this is the fourth season. And in every season, we kind of, we tailored it and we corrected it, and we fixed how it would look until we have what you now see, which I think is actually it's not looking too bad!
We had a real blessing with these T-Shirts. That lifted it. We had a real blessing with some money for a camera. That's definitely lifted how it looks as well. And we were inspired and were able to get some really cool, little, funky jingles at the start and the end. So that's really lifted it. And I'm hoping that the Andy B videos have lifted you in some way.
But, here's some more exciting news. So, from the back of Andy B videos, I've written a book, which is now ready for Publish. And it's all from Andy B 2 Minute Videos. I won't give you the title yet 'cos it's not going for publishing just yet. Gotta have another spelling check. I'm waiting for a foreword from a friend. But, that's something that I never thought I would do. And yet that's my second book, actually. And there's a third book I'm writing on.
Do what God is giving you to do, and let Him grow it if He chooses. But here's the really important thing. If I'm clinging on to something, how can I possibly take something else from God? In order to do that I have to actually open my hand, let whatever is in my hand fall away, and God is either gonna give it back to me, or something even better.
Just a thought.
