It's the Two Step... of Life

It's the Two Step - of life that is. When I seem to make some progress in my life - it seems that the next thing is a few steps backwards. And that is what happened to me this past week - really the past few days. I had felt like I had made progress in a couple areas of my life and then it was like my legs were knocked out from under me and I am in the process of trying to sort things out in my head and get back to a better place. I should not be surprised because life just seems to go this way. And then to top it off - since I had my hysterectomy and I am not able to take any kind of hormone replacement - sometimes I struggle not only with circumstances but with my emotion- the absence of the hormones making it a bit more difficult on me. And I am a bit discouraged, but God will get me through this as well.

I just need some time to regroup. And I think that I need to try to spend more time in Bible study- The past few weeks I have not had hardly any down time and my quiet time has consisted of reading my devotional and a quick one minute devotional that "It is Written" does every day. And while both of these are excellent, I really miss my time of studying the Bible and more quiet time to hear Him speak to me- through the Bible, nature, whatever. Anyway so I am going to take a little blogging break. I will be back soon. I just need to spend more of my down time in Bible study and prayer.  Hope you all are doing well. <3 :0="" p="">

  1. You are so right Lisa about taking your precious time to draw closer to the LORD!!! I am doing the same thing! God bless you, encouragement you and shine His Light upon you!!! Love and hugs~

  2. I have had a blog for over 8 years and many's the time I haven't touched it for months. When it takes time from other important things then that is when to take a break. I wish you well X

  3. Hi Lisa! Boy, that hormone flux is a tough one, isn't it? I'm so sorry that you've been experiencing some down times. How wonderful that you know what will help.
    Have a good blogging break, and I know you'll come back refreshed :)

  4. I will miss your blogging--but you take all the time you need. You are doing the right thing! While I have not had the same circumstances as you have to deal with, I, too, have felt recently like I need to get back to spending longer on my quiet times with Jesus.

  5. Take good care of yourself and stay in touch... hugs to you, my friend.
