I sure remember when writing came easy for me...it was back 4-5 years ago...I could just sit at my computer and write...then...in a moment things changed...you'd have to go back and read my posts from March 2010 to understand it all...but my world got rocked. Frankly...it has taken way toooooo long to recover from that. My relationship with God has been ok, but not passionate. The drive in my gut for God has been weak --> ok. My faith has been rattled...
Yet through all of this...one thing remains true...one thing has remained constant. "...great is YOUR faithfulness." And then add to that... "The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him." (Lamentations 3: 23, 25) He remains faithful to me...faithful to listen...faithful in his patience with me... faithful in the peace he gives when we ask for it.
Recently I have been reading "My Utmost For His Highest" each day...I hadn't read those devos since High School...and it has been refreshing...and challenging. Here is a quote from today...
"We lose the vision because of our own lack of spiritual growth. If we do not apply our beliefs about God to the issues of everyday life, the vision God has given us will never be fulfilled."
It is time...no really...it really is...time to renew my passion for my Savior. Time to have a renewed and refreshed vision for life...for leading...for loving people...for sharing HIS message! "Father, forgive me for where I have fallen short and tried to control things on my own...It is time for me to dive back in...not just tread water...it is time to dive back in to YOUR mission...all out...all in! I love you...in Jesus name!"
Just felt like posting today...been a long, long time...in fact it was funny to even go back and see that I had more drafts of posts than posts in the past years...time to post. Time to step out again...time to LIVE instead of SURVIVE!
