Happy New year

I'm so happy to get Christmas behind me. I really am torn because there is so much that goes with the holidays that just gets everything upside down. I've become distracted. Getting up and reading God's word with my wife? gone. Seeking the Holy Spirit earnestly? gone. Desperately seeking God's will? gone. Church services? gone. Sunday School? gone. Choir practice? gone. Sunday night church? gone.

Wow, it really was the Christ of Christmas right? Nope.

I'm really just being transparent because with confession comes healing. I'm not sure I can have distractions of bad weather that shuts down the church, or Christmas/holiday hours that eliminates services and meetings. No, I'm not blaming anyone for wanting to enjoy Christmas with their families. What I'm saying is that I don't know if "I" can handle it as someone who seems to have Jesus A.D.D. disorder. I NEED to have my nose in the Bible seeking God's word. I NEED to be filled with the Holy Spirit and renewed. I NEED God's presence in my life. Without it, I'm just a lifeless corpse. So....

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Out with the old and in with the New.

This New Year my resolution, no my pledge, no my VOW is to stay entrenched in God's word. I vow to seek the Holy Spirit and try to hold on to him like Jacob holding onto the Angel. I vow to cut out the repetitive sin and work on the daily sin earnestly. I vow to keep Christ first in my life no matter what it takes. And if the church ain't open then I'll have to go to one that is, I really can't afford to not. I must constantly knock at Jesus' door.
