I've missed blogging. Why I haven't been consistent, I don't know. I haven't been consistent in my pursuit of God lately either. Just sort of going through the motions.
I am so grateful that even in my inconsistency, God always remains consistent. He loves me through it all. Everything. Wow. He remains steadfast through my doubting and insecurity.
How fast I can be blinded by fear! I forget my purpose, and old patterns and habits creep back into my life. But His mercies are new EVERY morning.
I found this excerpt very poignant in the Morning by Morning devotional by Spurgeon:
Go on seeking, for it is dangerous to be without your Lord.
Without Christ, you are like a sheep without its shepherd;
like a tree without water at its roots;
like a withered leaf in a tempest--not bound to the tree that gives it life.
Seek Him with your whole heart, and He will be found by you.
Give yourself thoroughly to the search, and truly, to your joy and gladness, you will yet discover Him.
