On being on hiatus…


A friend of mine commented the other day that I had stopped blogging and wanted me to start again (like I am THAT interesting in the first place)…so here you go.

I experienced a complete 180 today (mainly because my attitude was not so good), BUT it was such a good turnaround. I went to Sunday School this morning at my “home” church, Woodhaven Church of the Nazarene and just felt blargh…one reason being that I didn’t want to go there this morning.  I went anyway and was disappointed to find out that the friend that I attend with; the one that gets mad at me for going somewhere else, did not show. So I did what any overly emotional 26-year-old female in Alabama does…I got mad, texted my other friend who attends the church I wanted to go to, and left to attend that one. When I arrived at the new church in question, I was immediately encouraged. All of the people there are just great (I mean they were greeters and that’s their job, but a lot of greeters at other churches aren’t so greet-y). The music was great and powerful and I wasn’t tempted to just space out and look around the auditorium at nothing, but was really into the service and especially the message.

It must be a God thing (cliché, but true), but the past few weeks I have been inundated with messages at church, online, bookstores, wherever about FASTING. It is something that I haven’t really thought about any time except for LENT and was really surprised to have it weigh down on my heart so much recently. I am really looking forward to praying about this and joining the community group at the new church so that I can really talk about being a 100% Christ-follower. The past year I have seriously neglected my duty as a Christian and am really encouraged to renew my relationship with the LORD.

I was also really encouraged with what Pastor Troy said today and it really hit home —“Everyone wants the revival, but no one wants to pay the price.”

So true.
