“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)
I've been going through such a dry spell lately, spiritually speaking. This is such a challenging time in life for us. We have 2 little babes to care for and a house under construction and so life has really been flying right past us because of all the busy-ness. It's been going by so fast that I honestly have to say the I have not personally picked up God's Word in weeks and my soul is famished. It's no wonder that I have had many bouts of worry and break-downs lately...I've been doing it mostly on my own wisdom and strength...Sometimes I even wonder about my faith and if it's still there, not because I doubt there is a God, but because I've been falling more to my sinful nature rather than clinging to God's righteousness. Then, Joshua 24:15 stared me right in the face, "...if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve..." The reality set in, I've been choosing to serve another god.
Forgive me Lord, return to me a desire to serve YOU alone!
