Ephesians 3:20-21 (New International Version)

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen

Direction, Reflection, and Intention

Each summer, I hope to find rest,redirection, and reconnection with what I think is important.  Oddly, I find there are lots of good intentions but the ball is dropped by the "things" that interferre in life.  Yet reflection doesn't always reveal what exactly those "things" might have been.  I wonder if those "things" were really all that important; was it worth the interuption? 

This summer, it is my personal purpose, my intentional decision, to keep friends close, family closer, and my relationship with God even closer.  I love having Bible Studies with my close friends.  Yet, we get so busy, many times Bible Study night becomes a calander mess and loss of flavor becomes inevitable.  I wonder....I just wonder...what would happen if I simply embarked on my own journey.  Just me , my God, and my computer.  The calendar would be simple but would the accountability be there? 

This summer, Beth Moore and Kelly Minter are creating a beautiful on-line time with Kelly's new Bible Study on Nehemiah; A Heart That Can Break.  I'm interested...yet I know the month of June will be busy...and to be honest, the month of July will be busy, too.  Yet future reflection back may determine that it was more important to commit to purposeful and intentional time spent in study of the Word.  It's time to make a decision and stick with it.  hmmmmm
