 I have been purposely neglecting my blog. In fact someone asked me about it a couple of weeks ago and I purposely said well "I killed it". I know very strong words. But to be honest I had to. I don't know if this has ever happened to you but the last two years have been painful and extremely emotional for me. Sometimes when a person is in that "space" it's best to not make the journey public. For me I needed to wait until I was on the "other side" so I could have a perspective of love, faith, hope and gratefulness. The last few months the Holy Spirit has been nudging me toward posting. I would go there in my head but just couldn't get myself to until today. Here is the story to finding my way back to "blogdom"

On July 7/22 I was reading my Bible (which by the way I am Not consistent at, but I want to be better at) and  Jeremiah 30:17 stood out at me "For I will restore health to you and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they have called you an outcast, saying, This is Zion , whom no one seeks after and for whom no one cares!" and I was reading this I thought this is ME! "Yes, I need healing, not in the physical sense but in the emotional, spiritual sense" Here God was telling me He would heal my wounds and it was as if the words described exactly how I had been feeling. As I kept reading I came to Jeremiah 31:12 ".....and their life shall be like a watered garden, and they shall not sorrow or languish any more at all." The word languish means: to undergo neglect or experience prolonged inactivity, suffer hardship and distress: to be subjected to delay or disregard; to be ignored. In my spirit this rang true...the word languish totally described me and as I mulled these words over in my mind the first part of the verse stood out."Their life shall be like a watered garden", this is not just life to the person who is the garden but also to those who benefit from the garden. I was ready to move from inactivity, to purpose to once again become intentional in my life.

The second nudge came:
August 12, 2013. I was at The Country Church in the front office waiting for the secretary so I could pay registration fees for my kids and something I cherished, used and thought was lost was tucked in a cubby of the front desk.
This Bible was one that my husband gave me years ago and I had used when I was a youth pastor for 6 years and when I had taught at CCS for 6 years. It was my "go to" . It was worn and marked in all the right places. It was so familiar to me that when I lost it, it was hard to read any other Bible.  It had been lost for 2 years. I had looked everywhere at the church, my house on Ellis Rd and my new house on June Drive when I moved. It disappeared during a critical time of my life and it seemed as though my vision, dreams and passion disappeared with it. When I saw it I felt the Holy Spirit say to me "Begin Again....". Those dreams, the vision, the passion that I thought was gone was only dormant. What has been dormant in your life? Ask yourself is it time to Begin Again....?
