I'm pretty disappointed in myself for not writing in here for 5 months. It's not that I haven't thought about it. As a matter of fact, I think about it often. Something will happen and I think: "I should write about that in my blog." And then I don't. Real cool, Bek. But what's done is done. I can't do anything about it now. It's time to move on.
I have a goal of writing in my blog once a week this year. And I will do my best to make that happen. I really DO enjoy writing. I think part of my problem is that I have sooooooo much to write about. And it's overwhelming to process it all. For example, I am still trying to journal about my return to the States in October of 2014. It's emotionally taxing to dig some of that stuff up. But I know that it's necessary and I have recently been inspired by a friend who is recovering from major surgery. She blogged about some hardships in her life leading up to the surgery and that was just the push I needed to jot a little something in here today.
Here's the quick review of where I am today: By the grace and goodness of God, I am back in Spain! I arrived just before Christmas and I am getting back into the swing of things. Here in Monachil I am the leader of a Venezuelan sub-team. There are four of us and we are working to find people that are searching for God.
My personal word for this year is discipline. I want to be disciplined in different areas of my life: in prayer, work, exercise, and play. This blog fits under those categories and I want to be diligent in expressing my heart and thoughts through this channel. I guess I needed to write this out because it serves as a sort of accountability.
The Spirit of God is moving in Spain, and His Kingdom is coming here. This is not for me to keep to myself. So, thank you for your patience in waiting for me to write again. (Although you and I both know that no one has written asking me to write again. And that everyone forgot that I had a blog.) :) But that's ok. I knew.
So, here's to another year of the Reign in Spain!
