OK...so it's 2010. My theme for this year is re-commitment. As you can tell, (I'm probably talking to myself, because I don't think anyone reads this!) I have not posted is for-ever! This re-commitment thing has a long way to go and touches a lot of areas in my life.
At the same time I felt the Lord give me this theme for 2010, we began Priscilla Shirer's One in a Million. And may I say, it is SPEAKING to me. Along with that, God is so gracious to show me so many areas of my life that need to be recommitted to Him.
But y'all...it's so difficult. 2010 is only 11 days old and that old way of thinking is slipping back in. My mouth got ahead of my good sense today. My emotions about got the best of me today. The feeling of being overwhelmed almost overtook me today. At the same time, I feel like I am right on the edge of an epiphany from God. Will I be still, listen and allow the Holy Spirit to connect the dots? I pray I will.
As my church begins an initiative of reading through the Bible - today I began my reading of Matthew 1-3 in The Message Bible. What spoke to me was the last part of Matthew 3:2, "Change your life. God's kingdom is here." God is speaking to me of the changes I need to begin this year. I say begin because I know it will be a daily process that will only end when faith becomes sight.
So as the title of my blog confesses, here I am Be...ginning Again! Isn't that what it's about? Realizing where we are, where we need to go, and beginning the journey again - this time on the narrow path. I'm sure I'll step off - I already have. But God is good, and He will guide me back, if only I will daily recommit my way to Him!
