He is knocking.

Sometimes I find myself in a rut.  I can think of a million things to blog about, but when it comes to sitting down and actually writing about them...I'm stumped.  I have a hard time getting out what I'm feeling or thinking in words sometimes.  That's pretty much what has been happening the past few days.  Sorry.  I'm back now though :).

via google.
On Sunday my bishop made a statement in his talk that made me think.  He said that we need to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk as well (I think he was quoting somebody when he said that... but I don't remember who it was or if he really was quoting anybody).  This got me thinking.  I mean, I've heard that before and I know it, but it was a really good reminder for me.  It got me to reflect for a moment on my life and whether or not I am living a Christ like life or if I'm spending most of my time just talking about it.  I feel like sometimes my life is a roller coaster.  I go through phases where I'm really on top of things and I spend time each day reading my scriptures and praying and I am focused on Christ, and then there are times when I fall behind.  I'm kind of in a lower point of life right now.  I am not taking the time to read my scriptures or pray and I'm not as focused on Christ.  It definitely does not make life any easier.  There are things that I need to do to get myself back on track.  One thing that he said in his talk was that we need to take baby steps when it comes to growing closer to our Savior and becoming a true disciple of Him.  I needed to hear that.  Sometimes I think, that I'm so small and have so much I need to work on and I let all of these things I need to work on overwhelm me.  It's a process that I need to take one step at a time.  He is always there for me, I just need open the door and let Him into my life.

I think we all have those roller-coaster experiences, and that's a part of life. Just keep at it! And if you miss a day reading your scriptures or saying your prayers, just start again the next day. :)
By the way, is Bishop Kitchen still your bishop? I miss him!
