Man...I'll be honest with you. I'm not feeling very connected with God lately. I feel like I'm in a bit of a slump and I know exactly why. I haven't been spending as much time in the Word as I would like.
When you don't cultivate a relationship, it doesn't grow. I have found myself so overwhelmed with life - full-time CPA job, being a new wife, blogging, out of town trips, home projects, possibly selling our house, etc (not to mention volunteering, reading, softball). I haven't been prioritizing like I should, because the Lord hasn't been first.
I did learn something a while back. Your spiritual life will have ebbs and flows. There will be ups and there will be downs and you can't beat yourself up over it. I tend to be very hard on myself regardless of the issue, especially with my spiritual walk. If you desire it, you will come out of the "valley"and back to communion with Him. So I'm working may way back to that closeness with my Best Friend and Father.
I ask you, as my friends, to pray for me. Please pray that I would put Him first, even if that means blogging a little less....and that I can have peace about that! I believe that prayer is SO important and I SO appreciate your prayers. Always know that you can let me know how to pray for you! He's listening!
And because this post is a bit of a downer...I leave you with a photo of me and my hubby from the weekend at our nephew's 2nd birthday party. We were doing the "prom" pose...hence, the cheesy smile, but I think it turned out cute! I'm constantly reminded of God's goodness by sending me this amazing man to do life with!
