So as some of you have probably already noticed, I go through seasons of blogging. And the key to these seasons is the amount of spiritual food that I’m eating. When I’m barely eating, I’m barely blogging. When I’m inhaling, I can’t blog enough. Let’s just say that I’m in a season of malnourishment. And it’s mainly to do with a.) being very tired! and b.) not having a handle on all that’s going on. Not that either of those are excuses. I mean well, but I’m hit and miss right now, which I’m embarrased to admit to.
Lately, my morning prayer has been thank You, Lord, that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and that includes getting out of bed. I just can’t get enough sleep right now. Can’t get enough time to do all that needs to be done and just don’t have the energy to get it all done. So I’m thankful that the Lord sustains me. I’m thankful that He has this baby even on the days where I’m so busy that I forget to drink my water and take my vitamins. Thankful that He helps me to keep my peace and reminds me to stay cool even when Rydey has dumped out the contents of every drawer in our house for about the 5th time that day. And thankful that He helps me to get the absolutely necessary things done in life. Yet I’m quietly reminded each day when I’ve not included Him on everything, when I’ve not spent time in His presence, and when my mouth speaks contrary to His Word. I’m thankful that He doesn’t shout at me, but He lovingly corrects me. And I hear Him.
So for the first time ever, I’m looking forward to January (my most disliked month of the year) in that I’m really wanting to start some new habits, new patterns, new ways of life. If I can’t do it in January, the slowest month of the year, then I can’t do it ever. So I’m writing down a list of goals, things to fast about, things to study in the Word, and areas where I really need to get myself together. I have high hopes . . . 🙂
In the meantime though, my biggest concern is what are we going to do for Christmas gifts for all of our UK family, how am I going to survive the month of December and not gain a bunch of weight, and when can I have a day to sleep . . . real spritual, huh? It took me 2 days to decorate our tree, so that gives you a clue of how slowly I’m moving . . . anyway, I also have high hopes that in January I’ll be blogging a lot more as I fill up my spirit man and let him pour out.
