So……I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon. I’ve fallen off the praying wagon…simply put I’ve fallen off.
I have been SOOOO busy which is code for I’ve failed at prioritizing and just got overwhelmed by life. But I realize that this blog has meant so much to me (and hopefully) others that I think I should attempt to step back out there.
What have I done radical? Well I’ve been really focusing on my health. I wanted to of course lose the baby weight, but more importantly I wanted to support my husband in his new business venture. See while I’ve been on hiatus from my blogging I have been very active in helping him start his dream. Which has been such an inspiring and sobering experience. I am so proud of him for moving forward on a dream he’s wanted his whole life..but then I got to thinking.
Renee (this is my convo to myself) Renee, didn’t YOU have a dream of empowering women? Me:yes.. Self: so what happened. Me: see, ive been really busy.
And that’s the truth, but you know what. the other side of that truth is.. you have to MAKE time. You can’t say I’ll pray more or read more or start that business when I have more time.. Because truth is..your time is limited. If it’s limited now what makes you think it wont’ be limited tomorrow or the next day, or the next week….. and so on. The devil likes for us to put off our calling, because if he can defer us just a little bit, that’s one opportunity we’ve missed. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe God gives us chances, but I also believe:
Mattherw 25- 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
We only get one life. We get one shot at this. My TEN year high school reunion is coming up. A decade of my life has passed and it went by like the blink of an eye. If I don’t make TODAY the priority to “get it done” it will be left undone when I leave this world.. I can’t have that happen.
