Haitus until Next Week

I will be taking a small haitus this week. I have been feeling rather low in the recent weeks and this past weekend burnt out completely, so I wanted to take this week to reconnect with God through prayer and scripture.

Through the process of grief, disappointment, and a few other past troubles that have resurfaced, I have found that I have unintentionally distanced myself from God.

The thing is, no matter how unintentional it may have begun, our worldly flesh will take that negligent habit and run with it.

I have also felt spiritually attacked. The Enemy knows he has lost and will use our most intimate hurts and painful vulnerabilities to take us down and lead us away from God. But we must resist, submitting to God, as the apostle Paul writes in James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

This may seem rather daunting impossible even, and alone it is, but we aren’t alone, Jesus says in John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

We live in a fallen world, there is an enemy that seeks to ruin us, but we have a God that has triumphed over sin and death, we just need to submit to His will, repent of our sins, and accept this free gift of salvation, by allowing Christ into our hearts, and look forward to His return.

My blog, in a way is a public ministry, so I need to be sure that I am in right standing with God, as I continue to write and connect with others. I hope that this brief haitus isn’t too inconvenient, and I will be back posting (hopefully more often) next week!

Please pray for me.
