I want some peace and quiet.
I want a walk in the country,
Well this week I get some well earned peace, pure simple unadulterated peace and quiet. For the next 4 days I am all alone, living on my own. And it is bliss. After living alone for a number of years moving back in to my parents home has been a slight culture shock. It is great that they have provided a roof over my head while I am waiting to move on to the next period in my life and I am eternally grateful for it. But to be able to come home to an empty, quiet house was wonderful, I have been able to relax and rest in a way that I have not in a long time. I am looking forward to being able to do some serious prayer and Bible study without worrying about being disturbed. I am hoping that this week will enable me to get back into a good routine for my Bible study that I have lacked since I moved home.
It is a wonderful thing to have the peace and tranquillity to spend time with God. I plan not to waste it this week and use the time to the benefit of my relationship with God. Time with God is often at a premium in my life due to the many demands on my time from many quarters. I think that from this week a new commitment to finding and spending time with God is what is called for. It is not enough to just say we want more time with God, if it is something we truly desire then we need to make the effort to do so.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
