Vacation from God

One of the best pieces of advice that I received from a friend was… “When you go on vacation don’t leave God behind.” Well call it lack of discipline but I continue to do that to a point. I still read my Bible in a year that I have been doing, but not everyday. Out of about six days I read three and it was not a great overall quiet time.

I guess between remembering that quote from my friend (unfortunately not prior to my trip) and the distance I now feel, my prayer is to renew a passion for prayer and life. To renew a focus on being where God wants me to be even if it does not feel comfortable or safe. I don’t want to go through the motions day to day which is too easy for me to do. I want to live here is a little POD “Alive” for you:

Everyday is a new day
I’m thankful for
Every breath I take
I won’t take you for granted (I won’t take you for granted)
So I learn from my mistakes
It’s beyond my control
Sometimes it’s best to let go
Whatever happens
In this lifetime
So I trust in love (so I trust in love)
You have given me
Peace of mind

I feel so alive
For the very first time
I can’t deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive
For the very first time
And I think I can fly (fly)

Sunshine upon my face (sunshine upon my face)
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world
How I feel inside (Tell the world how I feel inside)
Even though it might
Cost me everything
Now that I know this
So beyond, I can’t hold this
I can never
Turn my back away
Now that I’ve seen you (Now that I’ve seen you)
I can neva look away

I am taking that to heart right now, I want to continue to learn and grow and live… with passion. And for accountability sake I will write on this blog… No more vacations from God.
