On the right track...

It seems I get headed in the right direction and something happens - like this past week I was sick - and then I get totally off track again. I am getting back into the swing of things. I want this to be a habit that sticks thru thick and thin. When I was in college - I read my Bible and journaled daily. You would think I wouldn't struggle with it the way I do. but alas, I do. :)

Psalms 3

3 But you, O Lord, are a shield around me;
you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.

He is the only one who can do that and not fail me.

Galations 5

1 So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.

Funny how I needed to hear that today. I want to make reading my Bible a regular thing I do but don't want it to be a cut and dried - do or die slavery thing either. It's about a relationship and I know that - just tend to get busy and forget that. I needed that reminder.

4 For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace.

Grace - need I say more. :)

What is important is faith expressing itself in love. - Live by this and you'll go far.

25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.

Every part not just the parts I choose.

I just got back from group and left contemplating something that someone said that hit to close to home. That thing that was said was - When your busy, you don't deal with the inner stuff. I am seeing how my business keeps me from my inner stuff. Which is evident by my lack of posts. I want/need/desire that relationship - but fail to make things happen. Priorities.

God, change me - mold me. Make me more and more like you everyday, I know that will only happen as I seek you. From this day on I will seek time with you - for You alone. I will make time to meet with You, my king. Teach me you ways. I am yours. amen
