Blog Hiatus!

Here's the deal. As soon as I click on the publish button, I am officially on a one week bloggy hiatus! No blogging and no reading blogs. From Friday to Friday. I thought about posting this tomorrow, but I really felt led to do this tonight because I wanted to wake up tomorrow with a clear mind and vision.

I'll be honest when I say that I'm fighting this tooth and nail, and my flesh is not liking this one bit. I've come to get great enjoyment out of the blog world and great enjoyment out of all of you, but there's no greater enjoyment that we can receive then being in the presence of the Lord.

I know this is something that I need to do! I need to "clean house" a bit and as clearly as he was standing right next to me, I really just heard the Lord say that is has to be without distractions. I need to focus on school, work, relationships, my health, finances, but MOST important, HIM!

Please be praying for me throughout the week that I will clearly hear from him, draw closer to him, and that he will reveal himself to me. As much as I'm fighting this, there's a part of me that is really excited about this time because it's when all the distractions go away that we gain new perspective, hope, wisdom, and vision.

I love you all and if you want to stay in contact with me throughout the week my e-mail is on the right-hand side of my page.



And in the words of the great Terminator "I'll be back"!
