Today, I begin again. For the last two months, I took the time to think about my future. I took a long break but not in the right way.
Every day, I came to the blog, and nothing flowed. I just looked at a screen. I should have prayed more, but prayer even escaped me.
I seemed to wander in a place of nowhere. Not serving the Lord, not praying, and not reading His word.
Other things in my life were okay but not okay at the same time. I faced no significant problems other than a soaked carpet on the passenger side of my car, in which two mechanics cannot fathom the problem. It is more worrisome than tragic. My family is in good health.
I just recently returned to the church and felt refreshed. I prayed and read my Bible for the first time in weeks.
God blesses me, and he kept me safe from problems in this period. I neglected Him so horribly. I feel so ashamed. I confessed and am trying to return to start a new beginning.
2 Corinthians 4:16-17
Though outwardly, we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs
them all. Truth: God continually makes us new.
Every moment of every day brings a fresh beginning.
Even with my failures, I can cling to Him. He understands and loves me with love so deep that I will never comprehend.
I wrote this post for Anita Ojeda’s Write 28 Days February 2020 challenge. You can learn more here. I am still trying to come up with a theme and series graphic.
