to slip out of habit

somehow i missed (or skipped) my devo's the last two days and it got me thinking. after reading and journaling today this is what came out....

how does one fall out of habit? how does something one does daily become something for special occations only? how does belief become unbelief?
how does one who has seen the tangible power of God, who's heard his voice and seen his provision in their very life, one who's lived in the light - how does that one then crawl back into the life that he/she was rescued from?

one thought at a time. "i don't have time" & "i've already read that" & "God knows, i don't have to pray"...
one day at a time. priorites slip and change. questions go unanswered. frustrations go unexpressed. offenses go unforgiven. cries for help- not spoken. ..

God used her in my life. mightily! to show me where i was lacking, to show me what i was missing and how God could change it all...
she lead me to the foot of his cross. and now....
i don't know how to talk to her...
i don't know how to pray for her...

one thing she's taught me is why it's importain to stay in habit. you can tell me to read my bible and pray and journal and tithe because it's good... and maybe i will.
but show me what happens when you dont- and now you've got my attention.

Luk 9:23 And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me....

dark days, tierd days, stormy days or just plain busy days.... i will come- ---daily!

--much love
