2017

Looks like its been exactly one year since I've posted something. Shows you how my year has gone. Lots of things going through my mind right now. At the beginning of this new year, I'm thinking the same thing as last year, just do what we know to do. It always comes down to that for me. Just keep moving forward, let go of self, and be committed to press on in Christ. There really are no excuses for a follower of Christ. One of the tricks of the enemy is to keep us immobilized when we fall short yet again. We look back on the year and think we failed to stay the course, but we cannot let guilt and frustration keep us in that place. Get back up, get back on your knees, then pick up your sword and move on. This is a daily thing for me. We like comfort and security and far too often we (I mean me) let self gain too much power in our lives. Before we know it, our forward progress has slowed or stopped because its just too hard to overcome self. At the same time we have all the help we need to climb out of that whole. A. W. Tozer said "Let us then set our sails in the will of God." Reach deep down in yourself and be determined to cast off every weight that holds you down. Be determined to keep moving forward, following Christ, and growing into all God has for you to be in Christ.

Paul said he was "determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2)
