Being a born again believer can be hard stuff when we constantly stay involved in worldly stuff. Stuff that leads to destruction is at every twist and turn. Movies, commercials, certain social situations, and even certain people can be a stumbling block. A magnetic pull to the old life you’d like to leave behind.
I think what irks me more than anything though is when you stand your ground and the person you stand up against tries so hard to convince you that you are anything but a blood bought Christian. I guess they expect you to roll over and take their crap.
Even while writing this it sure seems like I have written about this before. In fact I am sure I have. Probably on my old blog, the one that I accidentally let go of without backing everything up. Yeah not a fun time and certainly one of my largest regrets to date.
Speaking of… my 12-year-old son asked me the other day what was my biggest regret. My reply, letting my health go, not staying active and fit. I forgot to add losing valuable blog content to the list.
I have to get focused on being productive with my time. God gives us gifts, talents, careers, money, and time. Somehow I am squandering all of that away. I’d like for that to not be true, however that would mean I am in some serious denial. So I plan to be consistent in my writing. To turn the TV off, to log off of social media. I am so hung up on Facebook and I don’t even know why. My 2nd daughter from another mother is in New York. I absolutely love her and seeing her photos warms my heart, I am so happy for her time there but I must confess that her being so far away is sad. That’s what I want to see happen again, human contact, humans spending time face to face! In a world where we can connect easily in a ton of different ways we are so disconnected. It isn’t gong to get any better unless we are intentional.
This post is just me rambling about a little bit of everything. I hope this beginning of June is finding you enjoying each moment of life, each new day. My great friends daughter is battle the C word again, round 2. My heart breaks for them both. My God is faithful! I am believing He will heal her.
