I've had this post thought for a long time now (right down to the title), but I still kept pushing it off. Why? I didn't want to admit I had fallen. My foot had slipped because I had tossed my Bible and my prayer time aside. I didn't want to admit that to you, to me, or to Him (though we all know He already knew). I kept making excuses why I couldn't restart this blog 'just yet.' "My laptop no longer works and I really don't want to work downstairs on the desktop." "I don't feel it's the right time." I would get an idea for a post while driving, but by the time I got home I didn't feel like writing it. "Must not have been meant to be." Hahahaha! How foolish.
But now I'm back. I'm starting new, starting afresh. After all, He makes all things new. With Him there's always a way back, and He will always welcome us back into His arm whenever we go to Him. That's what He wants. That's what He rejoices over. The one lost lamb though 99 stay by His side. I'm back to reading my Bible daily, even if it's just a Psalm or the next chapter in the Old Testament (my typical reading is a chapter in the OT, a chapter in the NT -I'm working chronologically there, a psalm or two and a chapter of Proverbs). My notes now date starting November 2nd, 2012, and, yes, I have missed a week of reading (and I started crashing again), but otherwise I have been looking forward to my readings. I don't want to slip again. I love what I learn, and I love how close I feel to God daily.
So, with this, I begin again. Have faith in me and keep reading!
