When you Walk Along the Way

Just a place to share my thoughts as I seek to serve my husband, raise my children and Glorify my God!

Walking in the dry lands December 29, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — A Relevant Old Soul @ 8:57 am

Well, Christmas has once again come and gone. And somehow, as wonderful as it was, I can not help but feel this emptiness. For some time now, my bible time and personal study of our Lord has been sporatic at best. Not having a permanent church home has left me with this nonchalent attitude toward attendance of corporate worship as well. I know that we all go through these dry spells. The times when we feel disconnected and removed from our Lord.

I am vowing today to begin anew. Even though I have not been faithful, he has. Even though I have not been committed, he has. I have to return to the arms of my Savior. I must return to the potter. Sometimes it seems easier to us to stay stagnate. Stagnation is convenience and ease and in my life it is most often a sin. I so easily become slothful and lazy in my home, my marriage and most importantly my walk with Christ.

I am vowing to stay moving. Moving toward my Savior, seeking more of him each day. Only when I refocus my ambition on his face will I truly leave the dry lands.

Breath on me anew this day Lord. Fill me with longings that only you can fill. Drown me in your spirit and presence. Lord may I only seek you and you alone. May I long to dwell in your house forever. Amen.
