So apparently my blogs that were supposed to be posted every week all came out in one day. Sorry about that.
But it's hard coming home to that. It's nice to go away and have everything taken care of for you, someone else cooks the meals, cleans your room, maybe even drives you around. And then you come back to reality and you have to do everything yourself again. It's hard, but it needs to be done.
Here's my request, do the same thing with your faith. It's nice to go to church or a retreat or a mission trip and have someone else schedule your time with God, tell you what to pray, lead you in song, read the Bible to you and explain it. But at some point you have to come home. You have to do these things for yourself.
If I only ate meals when they were prepared by someone else on vacation I wouldn't eat very much. Don't let your spiritual meals be the same way.
