It's just easier to be wet.....

Feeling rather dry in my faith lately, been feeling a gentle prodding or rather a swift kick back in the right direction. I feel different these days and have to re-evaluate myself, and my relationship with God. I feel excited though, like I'm discovering how much I really missed and loved an old friend and am so glad they are still around. Something is in the air lately, a shift, a change, I'm not sure what this year holds but something is definitely in the works. I pray that I can grasp hold of what I need to and hang on for the duration.

Found this today, made me think. For the whole post go here.

Galatians 4: 9 But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces ? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?

I turn back because it’s easier….I turn back because I forget that THAT is my wetness, like a fish in a goldfish bowl I forget that I am even wet, that I am that prone to sin, I don't even see it as sin...??…..and in the forgetting I get further and further away from God…He doesn’t leave me, He knew I was wet in the first place... but in my forgetting I get further away from Him……I turn back because it’s just easier to live in my wetness than to see how WET I am…..a faith walk is HARD WORK but the benefits far outweigh the work of it…..it’s just easier to BE WET……

by the title of the blog I thought it had to do with the water leaking into payton's room from from all the rain,

or payton's potty training.....
