I am reminded this morning that this “walk” with Christ on Earth is not a boring one. It’s not a dull & boring life. It is so easy to look around and see the ways of the world around us and the pursuits of those that don’t believe and begin to think the Christian life is dull and boring.
Five years ago I drank my last sip of alcohol. Every so often I have found it beneficial to re-visit the reasons why I decided to quit drinking and reflect on the things I learned during my time with alcohol. Over the last several years I have normally done this in my personal journal but I have felt recently that God wanted me to share these reasons and insights here on this blog so that others may have the opportunity to find strength or new clarity on the subject. With that being said, I hope that if you have been inspired by this post, or know of someone who may benefit from it, that you would share it in whatever manner you see fit.

Do you find yourself overwhelmed at times with what you believe the requirements are to be a good Christian? I’m not talking about abstaining from sin. I am talking about that list of spiritual disciplines ( prayer, bible study,etc…) we all have in our heads of what we believe God expects us “to-do” to seek Him and love Him and serve Him.
Most Christians have heard the great verse in Jeremiah that proclaims … “I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity ,to give you a future and a hope” But it is far less often that the 2 verses that follow are recited with it. They proclaim… “Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you search for Me with all of your heart”
