Spiritual Amnesia

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.


  1. Deb and JP you're moving! Wow...God's Blessings and safe journey during this time of transition. I enjoyed our numerous talks and your wonderful insights on relationships etc. and teaching in the classroom together. You will be missed on LI. Jesus never ceases to amaze with what he does in his people.

    Fare Thee Well,
