Well, the past few days have pretty quiet here on the blog. I am finding I go through times where I have so much to say that I must write lest the words explode within me while there are times when I have no words. Needless to say, but I believe we have a case of the latter going on right now.
I have been doing a bit of soul-searching the past few days - revisiting some issues within my own heart that I thought I had dealt with but can't seem to shake. To be quite frank, I am somewhat frustrated with myself and with my life right now. I feel like it is perhaps a God-given period of discontentment to push me towards the goals and life He has for me. I am not even sure if that makes any sense to any of you, but that is where I am.
And, I think it is of vital importance to take stock sporadically of life and directions and goals - to take the time to realign yourself with that which you have made your center. For me, my center, my focus is Christ and to be more like Him everyday.
One such issue I am working with that I was pointed out to me this morning at church is being more active in the community of believers. I am never more comfortable than being alone, and don't misunderstand, I know that alone time is important. It is my time to recharge - I am not naturally gifted with being around people 24/7. However, my personality should not be an excuse not to engage in the community around me. We were created for community - our very being is designed to do this thing called life with other people.
So that is one of a few puzzles I am addressing at the moment, and hopefully I might find a few answers for my questions in the coming days. Until then I am embracing the silence so as not to disrupt it with empty words and phrases that disguise obstacles instead of illuminating resolution.
