Can you say any more about this? I mean, I am not sure I know what you are getting at specifically. Are you to tired and need to be refreshed or having deep spirtual struggle or not sure of your direction or something different?

Sometimes God will set the table and fill your plate and for whatever reason we refuse to eat.Pray that God will once again fill your plate AND LEAN IN AND PIG OUT MY FRIEND. You know you want it and He wants for you to have it. Peace

Hi. You don't know me but I'm a friend of Jason’s and that is how I discovered your blog...
As for the spiritual snag, I pretty much live in one all the time. At least since the Baptists revivals or Jr. High. The best advice I can give is to just keep struggling. I think I will struggle with my spirituality until the day I die and I am ok with that. Heck, Mother Theresa even had a "Crisis of Faith" and from what I've read it was much worse than mine. Just my opinion, but I think that was due to the fact that she had trouble accepting it.
You're going to feel better soon. The fact that you posted this blog tells me that you are a fellow struggler.
Remember this prayer that my 4 year old recites every Sunday morning. "Dear Jesus, who loves us, help us we pray, to be your good children and live the right way. Amen"

That pretty much sums it up for me... Peace
Neil

just feeling a little like i could use a little rain on my spiritual landscape. often i go to praying the hours, which helps but can become oppressive rather than liberating, i get a little OCD about it. just wondering what other folks do when they are feeling a little like all that they are doing is ministry but wonder when they will get to be ministered to as well. heard a speaker today talk about the parable of the good Samaritan and that when reading, we pick up on the "love your neighbor" thing but forget the "as yourself" part.
