Christmas has typically been the most special time of the year to me, in my time with the Lord. Now that things are slowing down, I want to take some time to think about where I am at, where He wants me and where I'm going.
As with anything in life, I feel like it's important to deliberately and purposefully seek the Lord. It's not an easy thing to do. But otherwise, what's the point? One can pray randomly, read Scripture randomly, go to church with no purpose - and in doing so, get almost nothing out of it and be walking in circles.
I was writing a really long note, as usual, when I get really into something, but I am just not sure if that's what the Lord wants, so I stopped writing it. Perhaps I'll finish it later. I've been posting so much that I'm concerned it's become too haphazard and I haven't always thought about what the Lord wants me to say.
A lot of stuff has happened, walking with the Lord this year, and I feel as if I need time to consider it all and ask Him what's next. Basically, I just want to re-focus: how should I be reading Scripture, what should I be praying for and how should I pray, ask Him what He's up to, where He wants me to go from here, and talk to John and find something we can both read and discuss together. That's always been a lot of fun for us but it's also hard to keep it up, sometimes. When we do, we both get a lot out of it. John always has fascinating thoughts that I don't necessarily think of.
As I do this, I thought it would also be good to think about the purpose for this blog and make sure that I'm not usurping whatever He wants to do with it. Sometime soon, I'd like to renovate it, add a few things and change a few things. That will probably have to wait until end of December. I'll ask Him about that too.
So, I might not post as much for a while, as I think about this. I don't know if I will or not. Every time I say that, I end up posting more frequently, in some bizarre twist of fate. But, just to say, it's likely I won't. I want to have something in mind, of how to walk with the Lord, and seeking what He wants, as the new year starts. It's another interlude period. When I decide on what that looks like, perhaps I'll post about it then.
