Hello Again!!

So it was about this time last year that I posted… once… It has been nearly 2 years since I really posted. I have decided that it is time to start again. Well, here goes.

There are many things that I could say as to why I have been absent, but they all seem flat.  Want to hear some anyways? In the past 2 years.  I moved to a new state, I started a new job, and bought a house. All boring right? Right.

To be honest, these all played a part in the reason, but they were not the real reason, it was me.  I didn’t make time! This is a common issue in today’s society. We just don’t make time.  For others, our family, our relationships, but most importantly for God. He is often the #1 thing that gets left out whe He should be the #1 thing in our life.

How often do we make excuses for things when in reality, it is us. We don’t want to, we have better things to do, or we don’t want to be put out of our comfort zone. We tell our friends that we are busy, when really we just got into our PJ’s and were going to watch the latest episode of our favorite tv show (or the one you are binge watching on Netflix). Admit it! We have all done it… And yes, that means me too.

So back to my original thought.  I am going to start writing again.  It won’t be everyday and I cannot promise that it will be crazy deep each time either, but I will post on a regulate basis.  As with this post, I plan to have a post each Friday morning.

The idea with this blog is to share some of my raw, open thoughts with you. Take it or leave it. This is the opinion of one person who is going through everyday life and not always liking what I see.  I will always tell people that I am openly and whole heartedly a lover of Jesus Christ and my opinions will be shaped by that

I thinkthat we can be challenged to do better! Challenged to be more! Challenged to be what God has called us to be. I also think that it starts by Challenging our Complacency with the world around us and the changes that are taking place everyday.

Peace and Blessings.

No Excuses

I signed up for a challenge today.  It is a challenge to workout 1500 minutes in 31 days… No Excuses.  This comes out to less than 1 hour a day, something that is doable for everyone.  But time gets away from us, we have work, school, family, a social life and then we look back and realize… it has been months since I have been to the gym. (Yes, this happened to me).

No excuses is great for working out, but it is also great for each situation in life.  When something happens, we have two options, make excuses or take action.  According to Benjamin Franklin, “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”

We should live each area of our life with no excuses. We push forward and get the job done.  We make time for each of the important areas of lives and each action we take is our own.  Challenge, try to live each day with NO EXCUSES.
