I'm trying to keep up!

It has been months since my lost blog and I'm just trying to keep up. I've not really made time in my day for blogging. I've struggled just trying to keep my heart connected to my Lord and Savior Jesus. I have many tasks and jobs to be done each day and I find it difficult to make sure I'm truly spending time with the Lord in His Word and prayer. I realize that to do this other things and tasks must take the back seat. This is difficult for me because I love to go down the list and check stuff off. However, spending time with Jesus cannot be one of those tasks I check off. In recent weeks I have made a conscious effort to quiet my heart and focus on Jesus through His Word, meditation and prayer. I've started going through Disciplines for the Inner Life by Bob Benson, Sr. and Michael Benson. It's been a long time since I've gone through this and it is been a very good part of my journey back to connecting to the person of Jesus Christ. Will I succeed in blogging. I'm not sure. Is it good for me. I think so. Am I growing in my walk with Jesus because of it. I don't know but I hope it will help!

I'm trying to keep up!
