This morning I actually got out of bed before the boys. If you know my boys, you know that they get up at the crack of dawn and are ready for the day. I, however, can’t really function until I’ve had at least 2 cups of coffee. The morning time is always a struggle for me and it sets the mood for the rest of our day. So today I was up at 6:15 drinking coffee and having some quiet devotional time. It feels really good to be back in the word.
I’m starting fresh today and making some changes in my life. This year has been really hard on me spiritually and emotionally. I have been running from God for so long. I have yearned for a closer relationship with him and I just kept putting it off. I’ve missed church and having that church family. I have wanted to get my children in church but again, kept putting it off.
I was invited to a church, Inverness Vineyard by some friends. I went several times and loved it. I started taking Carson to Awanas on Wednesday night and he seemed to have fun for a while. I cried every time I went to church because I longed for it and I was overwhelmed with emotions. I stopped going after a few months. God kept working on me and 3 weeks ago I went back to the church I grew up in. WoW! It has changed a lot. I really enjoyed it and of course cried a couple of times. I’ve gone for 3 weeks now and God is really moving in me. I plan on attending Sunday school next week and I’m hoping that I love it. You can really feel God in that place and I did not use to feel that way when I went there. I really love how involved in our community they are. I am jumping right in and figuring out what I can do to make a difference.
