I have spent much time this last month with the A-Z Challenge, a horrible virus turned into Bronchitis, a bad back, and not much time in the Word. This has led to the old habit of just not reaching for my bible, and while I have a wonderful relationship with my Savior, I have been neglecting Him for too long this last month or so. He still loves me, that never changes. I am not a failure, and my failure to read my bible does not define who I am.
Due to being sick and hurt I have missed church 4 times in a row, eek! My teenage son has lectured me saying, "you should be in church even if you are sicker than a dog." I lovingly explained to him that no one wants my germs, after all I was contagious, and then went on to explain that God does not hold it against me when I am sick and unable to get out to church. Church is not the building but the people, and I have missed being in "Church".
I will be starting up again with the Survey Bible Reading Plan this next week, I believe that it is important to be in the Word in some capacity. Being in the Word keeps me focused on my relationship with Jesus Christ and focused on how I need to be living.
My daily posts will not always be on the serious side, some of what I write is just stuff, but there is always my faith running through all I put up, because my faith is who I am every day. I try to be the same in everything I do, I am a child of God first and foremost, and everything else after that is because of the relationship I have with Jesus Christ. I am just me, I am funny, quirky, serious, loving, but in all those things I am still a child of the Most High, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
When you come to my blog, you may find something funny and completely void of scripture references, or you may find a weekly meme, what I am trying to say is this: I am a child of God, regardless of whether my daily blog post has scripture running through it. I am a child of God, I am a Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, and Friend, who says I can't multi-task! Let me re-iterate, my failures do not define me, nor do yours define you!
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*
