Unplugging...

Well, I'm taking a little break.

I seem to have lost my "blog mojo" over the past couple of weeks. My "real life" priorities feel a little askew. I'm distracted. I'm not focusing on what I need to be focusing on. My soul just hasn't been at peace. And, I can't seem to figure out where this blog should fit in.

I've been thinking a lot about this verse lately:

I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go.

If only you followed my commands,
your peace would have been like a river,
your righteousness like the waves of the sea. Is. 48:17-18

I need a little peace and direction. So, in order for me to hear God's voice, I'm going to need to unplug for the week. I won't be blogging, and I won't be reading (though I will be checking email every few days.) It's going to be really difficult for me because I love to see what y'all are up to, but I really need to use this time to get back on track.

Have a great week y'all and I can't wait to catch up with you next week!

I totally understand, but will miss you.

Oh, and I love that verse. When I was younger, I had a plaque with the literal meaning of my name and a life verse...it was Isaiah 48:17.

I need to do the same thing! Why does it have to be so hard to do?

I hope your break is purposeful and wonderful!

Enjoy. I know you will hear from the Lord. We always do when we just shut up for a pair of minutes!

That verse is awesome! Thanks for posting that. I know for me, when life gets full, blogging is the first to go. Praying you find peace this week.
