Getting Stuck

Oh, it happened again... Life! I had been doing pretty well in keeping up with writing to the blog every day, but then, well, life happens. During the past eightteen or twenty months the Lord has been teaching me what His priorities are for my life and I've been trying to listen. One thing that I know I can't allow to happen is to let busyness interfere with my "real" life. But I also know that God has given me a gift and that I need to share it, so here I am! At this point all I know is that I'll be posting to the blog as often as I can without getting obsessive or burning myself out over it.

So, over these past months I've been getting stuck on a couple of Bible passages. Try as I might to get past them, I just can't, and that's not such a bad thing. At first I simply continued reading and studying, but the Lord kept bringing me back. Even I could figure out that He was wanting to show me something. I must admit that I'm very glad to have gotten stuck as it feels like tiny windows of understanding are opening up for me. I know that I'm getting about as much understanding as an ant might, but it's a start and it sure it fun!

I hope that you won't let your drive to accomplish a certain amount of Bible reading or studying get in the way of the Lord unwrapping one of His treasures for you. Don't rush yourself. Take your time and let the Lord show you the way He would have you go. I know that you'll be very glad you did!
