Stepping Forward

Hey Everyone

My writers block is finally gone!!....for now :) I'm sorry its been so long since I've written anything. I think I know what it feels like to feel sort of "luke warm" ,as I recently heard a woman say, with my walk with Christ lately. I have just been feeling blah. Like the passion has subsided a bit. Its kinda sad. God gives you these deep convictions of heart and all the passion that comes with it and you feel on fire, then it slowly cools and you start the process of living to those convictions and the intense feeling isn't so intense. Do you know what I mean? I think I've also been occupying my mind/ time with unimportant things and lacking in my reading His word. I have felt really guilty about it and thats the reason I haven't written much or might be why I hadn't had much I felt I could write about. I love how God uses the simplest means to wake us up.

Well any ways recently I've been thinking about fellow like minded women in the past. Their lives were so different then mine now. They worked so hard. They don't have the modern day advantages I have today. They couldn't go to the grocery store and buy frozen meals, or drive cars, buy their clothes pre-made. We live such lazy lives compared to them. And we have all these amentities due to technology. We take for granted so much. I think though because back then people's lives were shorter and harder that people were deep thinkers and enjoyed talking much more. When I say talking I don't mean we don't enjoy talking today, but they really listened better in conversations.

So lately I decided since I enjoy being crafty and really want a better mind set and try to tap into that reality of theirs, I started to sew and try quilting and want to start knitting. I know that might sound silly, but I think it kinda shows what women had to do back then and as it says in the bible as women we're to tend to our homes. I think God could really work in me by teaching me a simpler mindset. I've had to battle my sin of laziness, something I've had my whole life. The youngest with 3 brothers I had it pretty easy growing up. So I'm thinking by learning more on sewing and etc... it might help me understand self discipline. I know this might sound a bit silly, but if you think about it how much time do we spend being lazy or tending to our wants. And how much of all that do we learn to be grateful for what we have? Its crazy that as humans and sinners all we naturally think about And I WANT this or that. So wonder we push away God.

Well these were my thoughts for today, I know it wasn't much and hopefully soon I'll have something better!

Love you all,
