I cant believe I did not post for the entire month of August.
That was not the plan.
But it is what happened.
First, I appologize.
There were reasons beyond my control. Sort of. I got really sick while on vacation.
I really think I was homesick, because as soon as we started talking about coming home,
I got better. And I haven't been really sick since.
I am not making making excuses. Just one of the reasons.
I guess you could say I was on vacation in more ways than one.
And now, I just am having a hard time starting up again.
In fact, I am struggling right now.
I am tired.
And I just can't seem to shake it.
I know God is near, and He loves me,
But I can't really feel Him near right now.
I know He is. He keeps reminding me, in little ways.
But I just can't shake this feeling.
It is a good thing that we cannot live by our feelings.
Sometimes they help us.
But often times they decieve us into complacency. Or sin.
And Anne Graham Lotz reminded me today of this:
If you don't sense His Presence,
go back to when you felt Him last.
Did He tell you something you didn't obey?
And if that isn't the case,
I write because I am obeying.
And I trust because sometimes He withdraws for a season
so that we will learn to trust that He is and was and always will be.
Sometimes we just have to remember.
And just trust.
And that is all for now.
