When I first started this blog, 4 years ago, I wanted it to be a way that I could update my family on what was going on in our travels and also a way I could keep fostering my love for sharing my faith with my family, friends and anyone else who came along. Along the way I got disillusioned about who I was as a christian and what I wanted out of the blog. I got distracted and ignored the blog for a long time. Now that I have reconnected with my blog and with you all, I have been wanting to realign my blog with my faith.
Doing my homework for BSF the other night I was hit with some hard truth that I really needed to hear because I have been wanting to gear this blog back towards the christian roots it started as. In Hebrews 5:11-14 it says,
“There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen. You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.”
Well, this spoke to me because before we left New Mexcio I was leading a bible study. Leading is something that I have always felt called to do. But since then, I have regressed in sharing my faith and the word God gives me with you all. I am being a little harsh on myself I suppose, I do teach my children and they are my primary ministry. We are in the word daily and applying it to our lives. I just feel like I should also be getting the message out to the world as well. I feel the need to take the step to grow, share more of what I know and what God is laying on my heart to share.
Talk about getting smacked across the head with solid truth. People say to me all the time that God doesn’t speak to them, but if you are in his word, he can speak quite loudly sometimes!
