Write and Remember!

I am so excited about getting into His Word this morning? Why? Well, it seems like I've going through a time where I've been finding it hard to really get into a personal time of prayer and study of the Word of God. I guess, it started with busyness, fatigue, which led to lack of discipline, and spiritual dryness. Last night I stayed up pretty late reading over my old blog posts and it was so encouraging! I was reminded of so many things that the Lord has spoke to me in the past, things He has taught me, things He has done for me. I was reminded of the importance of the personal disciplines in my life that help me to give God the quality part of my day. This is one of the great benefits of blogging or journaling. We forget so quickly the lessons that God teaches us unless we write them down. In Deuteronomy the Israelites are told over and over to remember the things that God had done for them, taught them, and brought them through. They are also told to talk about them, teach them to their children, and write them down so they don't forget them. I haven't been very good at doing this recently, but I've been so encouraged by reading over what I wrote in the past, that I'm determined to get back at it.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations." Psalm 100:5


  1. Hi, Sharon~

    I have to say, I know right where you are. It is hard some days to sit and have some quiet time with God. I just started a new study, "STEPPING UP" by Beth Moore and I am loving it! She has challenged us to spend a moment every day on our face before God. I am putting every effort into trying to rise to this challenge. I hope I succeed!

    I hope you are able to get back to your personal time with God!
