Just an update

Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd give ya an update on my life. Man, I really didn't realize how badly that "relationship" was bringing me down. After it crumbling by the grace of God, though it was painful, it was a slow process of about 1 1/2 weeks that God had to take me through. I was physically spent and spiritually exhausted. As I look back on it, I realize that I was really walking outside of the Lord's desires. I was walking through a spiritual funk or haze; whatever you want to call it. But God's grace is sufficient to bring us back into His presence. I know that probably the girl has bad-mouthed me, but I also realize that she and I had differing worldviews and priorities and that they would never collide together into something that would work. After those 1 1/2 weeks, the darkness or haze or funk, whatever you want to call it, lifted and I realized that I was starving for real food, spiritual food. It's not like I had turned away from reading the Bible, but I know that I wasn't reading it to be challenged. If that makes sense, of course. I wish I hadn't made this journey into that "relationship" with the girl with all the pain I experienced in it, but thankfully I didn't do anything that I would have eternally regretted. God truly does make a way out of situations if we just keep our eyes open and our ears tuned to His Spirit.

I have been asked to start a young adults Sunday school class at church, but have notified them that I need to spend some time with God and let Him restore me to where I need to be with Him before I can undertake this class. I want to have the right heart and mind when I do this. And the only way I know how to, is to wait on the Lord and let Him renew my strength as Isaiah 40 tells me. I feel that the month of March would be the earliest I could take over the class if it has begun before then. Thankfully they understand and have granted my request to be allowed to rest in the Lord. The Lord is truly good.

So this is where I am right now. I hope this finds everyone else in a good place too with the Lord.
