Since I started Farming On Faith life has taken many different turns. I have made some real friends and found a special prayer warrior.(Whom I plan to meet in person over a Diet Coke in this New Year.) I have wept and cried with a friend as she battled and won her fight against breast cancer. I prayed with a friend from Down Under when her girl was missing and found safe and sound. I learned all about raising chickens and still live through your stories because I had to give mine up. I cried tears with a friend that lost her battle to cancer and moved on to Glory leaving behind her husband and small children. I wonder as I visit a friend's blog who just disappeared. I think she too has taken her final flight to Heaven. Good for her but sad for me. I have enjoyed meeting friends in Christ and praying and laughing mostly with a few tears scattered in between.
Last year~ I took some needed time away to spend time in the desert~ not sure why but God does. In those moments I thought of shutting down my blog altogether. I felt as though I had nothing to share. I felt empty and dry. Many times I asked myself~ "Why in the world do you blog? "
I took a break from many things in my life including blogging because I had fallen in a "rut." My spiritual life had become so routine so much that connecting with God had just become part of my datebook. I needed a time of connecting with God. All the changes and directions in my life had left me confused and wondering around much like the children of Israel. I needed to feel the Holy Spirit moving in my life~ not just following the "churchy" schedule I had followed for 40 years. I needed a re-awaking. I asked myself some hard questions about a lot of things~ including this blog.
When it becomes about me or the applause/likes and numbers~that will be the day I need to shut down this blog and all the other media sights.
I need God ~ I love God ~ I am nothing on my own~ In me dwells no good thing. It is all about what He has done in my life ~ what He is doing in my life~ and will continue to do in my life. I blog to simply share my wonderful and amazing GOD.
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
If you are still here and still reading~ I am back~ so very thankful to be back.
