I’ve sensed my heart wandering in the wilderness lately, knowing from where my nourishment comes but being satisfied with hunger and thirst.  Why do I follow after functional gods that give me temporary fixes but cannot sustain me?  I was at the end of my proverbial rope last week when God met me.  He showed me I was trying to conjure up love, peace, joy, etc. without Him.  He said you love me because I first loved you. I cannot do anything spiritually or eternally significant outside of God.  He showed me I must feed on the gospel daily and drink deeply of His grace through the power of the Holy Spirit to be sustained and nourished.  What I lack, He will give.  I came to Him for salvation because I couldn’t save myself so why should I not continue to go back to Him to sustain me with His grace and for Him to provide everything I need spiritually.  I’m thankful today, because of the person and work of Christ, that I can come and receive from the only One I need and trust.  Thank you Father.

Well, I’ve put this blogging thing off long enough.  One reason is that I’m not sure if I’ve got anything to add.  I do think I would like to have a place to reflect on four topics…God, the gospel, the church, and me. Less about me, however, and more about thinking big thoughts about the former three, how they affect my life and how I can be spent in serving the big three…and maybe someone else will be affected by the big three as I ramble on.

A second reason is that I just put things off.  Like yesterday when I didn’t want to deal or talk about a certain sin in my life.  Some things are too weighty to put off. This is going to require some discipline on my part, but I’m going to make each post short and sweet.  Well, that’s enough for now…until next time.
