LIVING GETS IN THE WAY OF LIFE


Well it’s been a while since I have shown up at my blogsite.

Sometimes living gets in the way of life.

Guess that is where I have been at the past few weeks. I am beginning to poke my head out of my hole. Punxsutawney Phil poked his head out to see if he would see his shadow, I am poking my head out hoping it won’t get shot off. Seems I have been the target of spiritual attacks.

Not spending time in God’s Word and letting thoughts run through my mind that are clearly not God’s thoughts have caused some pretty scary feelings. Forgetting to admonish the scripture to take every thought captive and think on good things, makes for a lousy life. So glad God doesn’t give up on me. Getting myself back on the right track. I crave the peace that He is so willing to give to me and His forgiveness, oh, His soul cleansing forgiveness.

Determining to get back to first things first. God, His Word and Prayer. Truly, it is that simple.

Do you ever look up at where you are and wonder, how did I get here, it’s not where I was intending to go? The good news is you don’t have to stay there. Yea God, He provides a way out. Glory.

Yes, you're absolutely right.... life gets in the way --- of life! LOL That's what life is - all the stuff that gets in the way of OUR PLANS. I guess it might be one of God's ways of telling us His plans and ways are not ours.... His are better! He knows best!

Living really does get in the way of life. Sometimes you need a break - sabbatical - and God know it. (He invented the sabbatical.) Thanks for being so real and sharing your struggles and insight.

God sees you and He still smiles.

Thanks for reading my letter at Jan Parrish's blog. I see we both live in Colorado Springs. It's beautiful this weekend. Enjoy!
