Re-Kindling the Flames pt 1

It has been such a long time since I have posted. I know part of the reason was because my first blog, “Simply 4 God” was hacked and I had to remove it which really broke my heart. I was down for a while, yet we know as Christians when we fall down we are to “get back up right”?  So, I began this blog, yet something seemed to be missing. What? Maybe I had “blog burnout” as some of my blogger friends told me happens from time to time. Maybe my desire to “blog for the Lord” had just left me. Maybe I did not feel I was making a difference. Thoughts, thoughts and more thoughts!

Then I began seeking God for the answer to why my spirit was down. I prayed and I prayed and I prayed.

One day I was watching or should I say “listening” to “John Hagee Ministry” and these words caught my attention: “Has God left you or have YOU LEFT GOD?  Have you lost your passion that you had when you first found Christ? If your answer is yes, go back to where you first found Him”.

I was absolutely blown away! I knew God never left me because Joshua 1:5 says, “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you”. (New King James)

I had left God.

I had let the “things of this world” consume me.

What do I do?

How do I get the passion back to blog for God?

I have to go back to where I first found Christ. I simply have to go back…………….
