i was thinking a lot about this the other day, and after talking with andrew about it, i came to make a decision. i havent been happy about my physical or spiritual life the past several months. instead of moaning and groaning about my pants being too tight, i knew i needed to do something about it. i decided that on my days off, i was going to do some sort of work-out video (because heaven knows i'm too tired on the days i work and what in the world would i do with jude if i were to join a gym??).
in regards to my spiritual life, i wasnt feeling oh-so-healthy either. i didnt feel bad, exactly, but i felt...complacent. that was scary to me. i want to feel challenged and closer to God. when i first was pregnant with jude, i prayed so hard and so often. i felt so close to God at that time, in spite of my situation. i realized that the main factor lacking in my life was daily conversation with God and time spent in the Word. for the non-believers reading this, this doesnt make me a hypocrite. in our walk with the Lord, there are mountains and valleys, ebbs and flows. while i knew i wasnt in a valley, i was on the downward slope. i decided that i needed to be spending time in prayer and reading my Bible everyday.
now i admit, i havent done the best on either account, but i'm working on it.
i'm a work in progress.
