So here it is. I've broken a promise. I wrote that I would write a blog every week or two, and it's been about a month. I'm sorry. I can make excuses, like I was on vacation for one of those weeks, or I started one, but I just always got interrupted. These things happen, but they are excuses. It is so easy to get out of a routine.
It's got me thinking about how it's easy to let go of doing things. It's even harder to get back in the habit of doing things. I look back at times in my life where God seemed a little distant. It's only now that I see it wasn't God who was creating the distance. This distance is in direct relation to what I was doing or what I wasn't doing. I don't have life all figured out; however my encouragement is this: spend some time pondering what things you are doing or not doing that help or hinder your relationship with God. Then ask God to help you make any changes you may need to make.
