No everyone liked Jesus...

I am in a situation where I have some people that aren’t very fond of me right now.The more that I try to impress them, the more they seem to dislike me.I have turned them off to my personality in some way, shape, or form and I have really been struggling with that.I know that not everyone likes Christians, however, the reason for their dislike does not seem to have anything to do with the fact I am a Christian. Last night my children had a “sleep over” with each other.At 3:00am, said sleep over was finished however, both children still wanted to sleep with someone, so for the sake of sanity and sleep, my husband and I divided and conquered.Around 4am, as I lie there in my daughter’s bed listening to WBGL, the local Christian station, it occurred to me, Jesus WAS, and still is, perfect and guess what, not everyone liked Him.

It has been a while...

Well folks, It has been a long while since I last posted.  I could give you plenty of good reasons for me to not have been posting.  1) I am in a majorly intense graduate program that is physically, emotionally and mentally demanding.  2) I am working part time as well as in a practicum to pay for said graduate program.  3) ...  My list could go on and on about why I haven't been blogging and posting but here is the honest truth- I haven't been posting because I haven't been spending time and getting right with God.
I used this blog to get right with God a couple times a week before, if not daily.  Now, I haven't even given it a second thought.  How easy is it to get bogged down with life and so busy that we forget what is really important?  How easy is it to say, I will start reading my Bible again, TOMORROW. 
           I used to think that when I worked at a church, my walk with God would be amazing because I have to go to him to glorify him, but here I am…
