Trimming the Fat

So after going back and forth for a long time, I decided I needed a break from most of my virtual world. Twitter, Facebook, Google+ (yes, that still exists), Instagram, etc. Spiritually, emotionally, and physically I needed to push the reset button and get back to the foundations and rebuild. I need to trim the fat from my life, in more ways than one!

In a nutshell, I was being a poor steward of the time I was being given.

I was missing my time with Him.
I was not taking care of my health.
I was letting the flesh triumph.

Short but beautiful and fun run this morning
I was doing some great things ... but ...
 “‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first." (Revelation 2:2-4 ESV)
So I find myself coming back to my first love; God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the amazing and beautiful Divine Person; the holy Ghost.

This day of rejuvenation has been beautiful, and I finally feel that things are beginning to fall in place again. Thanks Only to the Foundation that I lay in Christ Jesus ... what a wonderful Savior.

Being Filled ...

~Matthew
