I’ve been asked several times since my last post what I’ll share next. Then I was asked, why haven’t you written anything lately? There isn’t an answer as to why I haven’t crafted anything; but, I haven’t felt the peace and comfort that comes with writing. With all of the daily commitments, I’ve found myself observing, listening, reading, and just taking everything in.
It’s been a whirlwind; the weather has changed, I’m battling a cold, busy at work, crazy at home, financial stress with the upcoming holidays – I know others are facing their own stress too.
What’s missing though is the peace I feel with His Word. I don’t have an answer as to why I haven’t spent time reading His Word. It’s part of my day, but somehow that piece of the puzzle is missing.
I was in church Sunday; however, I didn’t hear what the sermon. Too much noise in my mind, I wasn’t open to what was said, I didn’t hear the message – why not?
I enjoy church and look forward to hearing my pastor’s message each week. I always learn something and walk away feeling refreshed, ready to tackle another full week of work, activities, and enjoying my family. As my morning routine began I felt as if the noise had subsided, I realized that my spiritual vision had faltered. He doesn’t send me daily reminders to spend time with Him; it’s something I do as part of my day.
I found myself skimming through 1 Samuel this morning, and am processing the words.
1 Samuel 15:34-16:21: It’s a good feeling as I work to complete the puzzle.
