Haven’t written anything in quite a number of weeks, so I thought I’d break the silence. A majority of this quiet time has been spent trying to reorganize and reprioritize my life with God. This Lent season, by far, has been the most productive and reflective for me than any of the others that I have observed.
God showed me a lot of pride issues that I have neglected to take care of, and in March, I paid dearly for them. I spent a lot of time after that day, writing out my thoughts privately, and I do have the intention of putting some of the material on here one day when I feel like I have fully healed up from that incident. But right now is just not that time.
The above issue has also resulted in a change of personality for me to. I’m a little (emphasis on little) slower to think about what I say before I say it – I’m also trying to consider other people’s points of views before my own. I’ve been reading my “comfort” Gospel – John – and realizing that a Christ-Follower’s walk as a lot to do with how often they are dependent on God for the day-to-day life and not themselves. This couldn’t come at a better time for me as I am unemployed and looking for work. Although the situation is bleak, I have begun to cultivate a little bit of God’s peace in me. I’m not worrying – this is huge.
I would love to hear how everyone else’s Lent and/or Easter season as gone as well. Do you feel renewed by Christ’s resurrection? Do you still need more time? What direction are we going in?
I’ll try, as always, to be more consistent in writing, but I can’t promise anything.
