Grains of Sand

I’m glad God doesn’t have a facebook

So, I have come to the conclusion, yet again, that I need to be stirred, to be shaken, in my faith.  I am not asking to be tested again, as I am still recovering from the last time, but we can so oftentimes get busy…What a silly little word that holds so much power over us…I get too busy, too stressed, too tired…..and neglect the things that are most important to me.  I’ve heard people joke about how much easier it would be if God had a facebook – then we would spend a lot more time with Him.
How sad, and true this idea is for so many of us.  I can come up with a million excuses – I’m tired, I’m sick, I’m on holiday…..this is all crap when you think of it – but how often do we think of it?

So, here’s the sad reality that snapped me out of it this time – and I don’t know who or how many read this, but it’s the power of the anonymous internet that lets me be honest with you all….I had iTunes open and was playing a mac-knock-off of PacMan and was too distracted to skip past the worship song (Light the Fire Again…How appropriate, right?) like I so often do – and as I let it play on in the background, I felt my heart stir up again and I wanted to badly to go and just talk about God to everyone – but they’re in bed seeming as it’s well, funny enough, 11:11pm. And so I lay here and write this instead.


This is my cry at the moment – I just don’t know what to do with this passion – Well, I have my dreams, but I have no idea how they’re going to actually pan out – I just want to be out there, being passionate right now – in this moment, not tomorrow, not next week, or in 3-5 years, depending on If I do a Masters.


Well, all that being said, I am going to be blogging on here a lot more often than I have been doing – I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions – but if I did, I guess that this would be one.
