A personal journey

Posted by jackboottapdance on September 18, 2009

I have been struggling with reconnecting with God for some time now. We had a tragedy in my family this year, the kind of thing that really makes you take a long hard look at your life and how you are living it. But, even though I knew I was missing that relationship with God, I let other things get in the way and went right back to the familiar easy way of living I was used to.

This week, however, that same feeling of missing something has been back. So I have been reading online again, trying to figure out why I’m having such a problem reconnecting. I have a couple of good friends who are Christians, and I have to admit that their examples have motivated and inspired me. Then this morning, I happened across a podcast on iTunes from Greg Laurie. For whatever reason, his words got through to me and I prayed for Jesus to reenter my life.

If you are seeking something, or having a problem figuring out what you believe and/or how to connect with God, please take a look at this site:

KnowGod.org

It might not be what you are looking for, but then again it might be.

This week has been a long one. I had a great day Tuesday, deer hunting. While in the stand, I started re-reading Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul’, by John Eldredge. It is a wonderful book, and really started me thinking. The rest of the week has found me tired and somewhat depressed, which I thought was just a result of long days. However, today after praying and reconnecting with God, I feel much better. Happy and energetic, as though a weight has been lifted from me. Which it has.

I hope that if you are looking, you will find what you are seeking.

    Hmm. Not sure what to say. Guess I’ll say that I’m glad you are finding respite and peace. I know this year has been a heavy one for you and J. And I’m all for whatever works! šŸ™‚ You might like to read the Conversations With God series by Neale D Walsch. Interesting take on the God thing.

    I also have to say that I’m impressed with your marksmanship on the hunt. Looks like it was a one shot clean kill. I’m glad for that. Although I love eating various critters, I do feel guilty about how they die and I certainly could not do it myself. Wild animals are typically killed much more humanely than domesticated ones, a fact I don’t like to think much about. ::non vegetarian guilt::

    Anyway, thanks for posting about important things. That’s what a personal blog is for – something many bloggers have forgotten. ::hug::
