Since my last blog post a lot has happened. I'm still running, slacking on prayer and writing though... The good news is that I am praying more than I am writing. I have something that I like to call spiritual amnesia, and I don't think I am the only one who suffers from this disorder. Basically, I forget that I need God. So then I don't pray one day and one day turns into two days and before you know it I've been going on auto-pilot for a week. Then I feel all anxious and I wonder why God doesn't feel "near" to me. Then I pray and the light bulb goes off, "oh yeah, I have to come to You and make myself available to hear You and receive from You whatever it is you have for me ." It's usually His peace. Then I commit to a regular prayer time and so it goes. I'd like to forget less.
