Getting back on the path!

I haven't written anything in awhile. Many reasons actually,  but the biggest I think is one that I am very embarrassed to say. I have been too busy for God!

It's the end of the year, work commitments, have been very demanding and deadlines and projects have been on the go. Problem being that God hasn't been apart of that. He has been a far distant memory and someone who comes into my mind when I need Him.

Sad...but true,

Anyway, while I am now on leave and looking back at what I have missed during my work commitments, I now see where God would have been important in my life.
In fact, everything I did, was without Him. Every thought I had didn't include Him. Every meeting I had,  he wasn't there.

Isn't this against everything that a Christian is?
Isn't this completely against our core beliefs?
I didn't partake and grow my relationship with Jesus.

But as I write this, I think to myself how many times I have actually done this. Excluded God from my life. Thinking that everything I do, is something I can do myself. I didn't need God. Why bother?

Is this something that's Christian's struggle with? Where we try and do everything ourselves and completely ignore God in our lives.

Where He is calling us, we are too busy!
Where He is walking beside us, we are going in the other direction, Where He is prompting us, we are are looking at ourselves for the answer and not trusting Him for anything!

The thing is now....what do I do? I have ignored God and not even thought about Him and now I feel bad and want to do something about it? Who am I to decide when to be in a relationship with God and when!

I can't decide that, but that's why God is God!

God is so merciful, so loving, so gracious and so forgiving that He doesn't look at the past, but He looks at the future. God takes as as we are because He knows that we are sinners and He knows that, as humans, we cock up many times and we are still going to cock up some more :)

The decision that is ours though, is that we need to decide which path to follow. When we fall off the small and narrow path, do we continue along the beaten track which leads away from God and towards ourselves, or do we make the decisions to get back on the small track leading to the King of love. If we choose the small track, we need to tell God where we have been, what we have done and where we want to go. We need to ask for forgiveness from where we have been and we need to commit to God where we were heading and where we want to head now.

I think the next few blogs will probably follow this topic as it fresh on my mind from where I have been and where I need to get back to.

I would love to hear your stories as well and your thoughts.
