A couple of months ago I wrote a post about how I was going to read my One Year Bible everyday and use his time as my 'quiet time' with God.
I have been really good about it, there have been days where I have not done it, but the next day I caught up and got on track.
Then I got into this 'moody rut' and I haven't opened it in a couple of days; give or take 12 days.
I also haven't been able to find my favorite comb which has been very irritating each morning as I brush though my tangled hair with a harsh hard brush knowing that my favorite soft comb would be so much better if only I could find it.
Tonight I told Luke I hadn't done my quiet time in a long time, but yet I took time to blog and read blogs numerous times throughout the day. He encouraged me to go spend time with God.
I opened my bible and right there was my STINKING COMB.
Imagine if I had taken the time to open up my bible and spend a little time with Him I would have found my treasured comb.
How many other treasures am I missing out on because I'm simply not taking the 'time' to open up my bible and spend some one on one time with Him?
What is He trying to show me that I am missing out on?
Why do I invest so much time in the internet and so little time with God?
So friends, I need to take a couple of days off.
I'm not going to give this time off a number because I don't know how long it will last. It could last 2 days, it could last 7, but I have some major catching up to do, and I feel like God is calling me to give my blogging a little break.
Why am I telling you this instead of just taking time off without telling anybody? Because I don't think I would stick to it if I didn't tell you. Weird, but its how I work.
This will be SO hard for me. I LOVE reading your blogs daily and catching up on your lives, even if it is your new favorite outfit, or your review on a TV show, I LOVE reading it all.
But I know I need to spend some time with The Big Man Upstairs.
Also sometimes I neglect spending time with the hubby because I am blogging, so I know I need to spend some more time with him.
Just letting you know. Heck I could be back Monday. Who knows.
If you haven't done it yet read my blog below, Its a special birthday shout out to my dad and sister and I don't want them to get covered up by this post.
See you soon! And don't blog too much! I don't want to miss out :-)
