It has been a while since I have blogged. I've been busy. I've been lazy. I've been wandering a little--losing a little bit of focus about what I desire my life to be about. I've been distracted by the good and the bad and by the encouraging and discouraging.
I have decided to start a new writing project. I will still be blogging here at http://www.abranchinthevine,blogspot.com/, but on my new blog http://jesusofthebible.blogspot.com/ , I want to take some time to read through and meditate on the Gospel accounts of Jesus. I want to get back to first things in my life. I want to look at what the Bible says about Jesus. I want to learn from His character and delight in getting to know Him more--seeing things about Him I have never seen before and getting back to the things that first captured my heart. I want to be changed by prayerfully examing who He is and asking Him to make me into who He wants me to be. I want the passion in me to be re-ignited and strengthened. The format of this new blog will be small sections of Scripture from the gospel accounts of Jesus and a journal of what God is showing me through this process.
Feel free to pray for this journey and to join me!
Mark 3:1–6: What Grieves God? - It is not for lack of compassion that men perish, but for lack of a heart that delights in the God of all compassion because of hard and rebellious heart...
