Abide in me, and I in you, as the branch cannot bring forth fruit of itself, no more can ye except ye abide in me. (John 15:4)

…he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. … thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Ps. 23:3, 5, 6)

As This is my own blog and I can write whatever I want (nanner-nanner); I’ll talk about a little journey. I have spoken [written] previously about trying to write full time, yet I seem to have always been stalemated financially into the perpetual cycle of working a full time job.

I’ve got a wife and kids and am the sole income provider; the only work that I have been able to get into that pays enough is work that I am really not interested in doing. What I have desired to do is ministry, but having never gone through seminary & being unwilling to sign statement of faith as a ‘covenant’ with church organizations (in terms, specifically of what I will teach), entering into ministry in the conventional denominational sense is not something that has materialized.

That said, how do we do anything at all that is productive with our time?

John 15:8
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

I found that my workplace was eating all of my hours to do anything productive (how hard it is to work in a job which gives you no fulfillment!), and even frustratingly taking time from my family.

There were times at my job where I literally had nothing to do – mind you that was not all the time, but there were large lumps of time that I had nothing to do at all. There was at one point about a week in which nothing was going on, and my coworkers were killing time talking to each other – literally, they would have like 45-minute discussions between bouts of screwing around.

Of course, I was still blogging more frequently at the time and I thought, hey: now is a perfect time to write. I pulled out my tablet and started working on a post. Within minutes I got a phone call at my desk – someone had walked in, seen me on my tablet and stormed into the General Manager’s office to complain that I was on my tablet. Again, there is nothing going on, and everyone in the office is killing time, yet I am singled out for trying to be at least personally productive.

Writing had been my one outlet for ministry, now I was being told that though I actually had time to work on it, yet though I had to be on the company clock even with nothing to do, I could not use that time to be productive.

Of course, management had taken from this the perspective that I was lazy, or procrastinating, or some other such thing (despite the fact that I was getting all of my work done – I just had surplus of additional time after completing it to do other things) and started scrutinizing me closely.

Now, I don’t need to go into the details of that, suffice it to say that all of my work was getting done, and every time I was confronted I pointed that out, which they affirmed to be true, but nonetheless wouldn’t drop it. I was literally told in a meeting in which I was getting written up for having nothing to do that the only reason I wasn’t getting fired was because all of my work was getting done. (You’d think that would say something to them about how maybe the problem wasn’t that I was wasting time, but apparently it didn’t.)

Anyways, I learned from them that my job was to LOOK busy whether or not there was anything to do. That’s what they were paying me for: LOOK busy.

“Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.”

I was depressed, I was frustrated, and I wasn’t able to get anything done.

I’ve wondered since the time that I realized that my job was going to stop me from having the one ministry outlet that I had whether I should have just quit then.

Problem is: I didn’t have another job – I spent months using my time outside of work applying for other jobs, nothing materialized.

I tried writing outside of working outside of working hours but because of how little time I had between work, family and trying to change the situation, I could get nothing done on a large-scale project.

I was rather too depressed to be writing spiritual content in short form. Also, I realized that as I could not manage to land another job and that I was simply making myself miserable applying and hoping for certain positions to materialize – I could likely end up spending the rest of my life in the situation I was in.

…he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake, he anointeth my head with oil. My cup brimmeth over, surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I realized that the problem was me.

Matt 6:24
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Why was I working where I was working?


I wasn’t interested in the work, I wasn’t fulfilled by the work. I despised the fact that even when there was nothing to do, they would not tolerate my trying to be actually productive. There was no good reason for me to stay there at all except that I needed to pay the bills.

I realized that my entire lifestyle had developed around making money. And… I certainly wasn’t making so much money that I was living in luxury – I was making enough so that we could barely scrape by, and then finish paying all of the cumulative bills with our tax return so that we could do the same thing again the next year.

Heb 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

I was not living by faith, I was living in fear – what would I do if I quit my job?! I had already determined that no one else was hiring me. But then… should I be depending on man?

“So… what did you do, Isaac?” You may ask, if you are still reading by this point.

Matt 6:25-26
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

I determined it was time to put my faith where my mouth is.

I started working on a writing project, and I quit my job. Do I have any hope of success?

Well, when I stand before God on judgment day, I will be able to say I stepped out of faith, and service to money in order to live by faith – at least in this instance.

Prov 10:3-4
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but THE HAND OF THE DILIGENT MAKETH RICH.

This proverb really spoke to me – the hand of the diligent maketh rich. I don’t have a source of income just yet, but I am trusting the Lord that if I am faithful to be diligent, to work hard and to trust in Him that He will help me; that He will not suffer my soul (or my family) to famish.

So that’s where I’m at… that’s why I haven’t posted much for a while, and that’s why you should see that begin to change.

Currently, I am working on a Comedic Space Opera and political satire radio show style podcast (mainly secular, but we trust positive in terms of the culture war) called Galacticus-man. It’s on YouTube, Spotify and now Rumble. I’ve got four episodes up on YouTube and plan to continue the project and develop others.

If you would like to check it out please do so, (the YouTube link to episode 1 is below, but you can follow the link to the channel and find the others there as well) but one thing I need and would appreciate from my brothers and sisters is prayer. Please have faith for me as I trust the Lord moving forward, and I pray I will be a help and motivation to you and others!

John 15:8
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
