A Challenge

I have not blogged in a very long time. The most prevalent reason is that I'm just very busy. The last three weeks have been completely crazy. I moved to the apartment next door which is has a dish washer and I use it every day. :) I also had one of my good friends and her 3 yr old son staying with me from the day I moved in till last week. And yes, that was very crazy.

I've been having a lot of fun this past month. There has been some hard stuff too.

And now here is the point of tonight's rambling: I need to challenge myself. I am going to wake up in the morning and start my day off right: in the Word. Even if it's just for five minutes, I am challenging myself to spend time in the Word first thing in the morning.

Last Sunday I visited my home church in Cd'A (man I miss home) and Pastor Doug told a story of a guy who struggled with pornography. So this guy wanted to overcome this addiction. And what is it we typically do to try to fix an addiction? We try to fill that time with something else. We simply try to push it away, think about anything but the one thing you don't want to be thinking about. And how well does that tend to work out? Typically not that great. So this guy decided to start every day in the Word. His addiction went away because he allowed the Holy Spirit to be with him throughout the day.

Now I'm not saying that was an easy thing to do. We are human after all. But I think this story definitely has merit. And I definitely need to be challenged in my faith.

For those who read this feel free to hold me accountible to this challenge!
