Do you know how easy it is to slide back into the rut/routine that you started in?
August: I make a decision to pursue God. My whole life is turned upside down because of that decision, and it is glorious! :)
December: I'm back where I was before that decision was made. What happened? And WHEN did it happen?
What I've learned from this? It's not a one time deal. It's an every moment of the day thing. This isn't "We made the decision, now we don't have to think about it", it's making the decision over and over and over again. I have to be more proactive. I have to decide every single day when I wake up that this will be a day that I pursue God. And then every single moment that follows, throughout the day, with every decision I make, I have to decide. Am I pursuing God? Will I?
The answer to the first question is probably 'no.' At best it's a 'maybe.' The answer to the second question, YES!
So this is me, choosing to pursue God today. :)
