Single Routine

Maybe I’m bad at being single, or maybe I’m just comparing my life to others, and I know that isn’t healthy, but I have this habit, and It is hard to get out of it.  I work all day, and I give my Job 200% every day.  So when I am finished, I tend to be wiped out.  My habit is to just come home and watch something on TV, or watch a movie, or browse the internet or YouTube or Social Media. It helps me chill out.

lately though I have been feeling like I wish I had friends who would go out with me after work to hang, play frisbee, get ice cream or get drinks or play games.  As far as I can tell most people do the same thing I do, especially if they are single, I’m sure my friends with spouses and kids think, ya lucky you. There is something really great about coming home after a long day of people and crazy to a quiet home where you know you can just relax and decompress.  I am grateful for sure, and at this point I have no intention of making any big strives to change that. 

So, no spouse, or kids to attend to when I get home its just me. I find that I am pretty unmotivated to even cook for myself sometimes.  It is so much easier to just pick something up quick after I get off work, though it is probably more healthy and frugal  if I cook.  


This week I decided that I needed to do something different. I decided I would forgo TV, and staring at my iPad or iPhone, in favor of listening to a book or doing a puzzle or spending a bit more time making dinner. I also have gone to bed a little earlier which isn’t a bad thing sense I need to catch up on some sleep. Ultimately I think it’s about putting intentional new habits into my after work routine.

Today’s news “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.” -John 15:4
When I don’t know what to say or what to do, when fear feels like it’s about to consume my body, the place I must go is to God, in his word and on my knees.  On most every day I start in His Word, in his scripture and messages for us.  “ For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;  it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”               -Hebrews 4:12,13
Today I spent time in Proverbs 14 I have been struggling with my own foolishness lately. Especially the way I spend my money foolishly and unwisely. I hate myself for it and I struggle with changing my actions. It is an outright battle waging within me.  I pray and cry out to God to make it easy, but even as I pray that I …

Today’s news Voices In My Head.
Ok I’m not crazy here, but there are very three distinct voices in my mind/head on a regular basis.  Our world especially this scientific culture that I live in would say there is something wrong with my brain.  I have heard these voices very distinct voices as far back in my life as 2 years old.  My voice, God’s voice, and the one that lies, the one that says I don’t measure up.  The one that says I need this that or the other to be happy or fulfilled.  
I haven’t always understood the distinction between the voices, the reason for that is sometimes the voices sound like four at once or fifty voices blaring in my head at the top of their lungs screaming for my attenchen the loud ones are usually the lies it is in those times that it becomes very hard to distinguish the three voices.  My voice gets confused.  
Here is the thing though, and I am not writing this from a I know it all perspective, because I don’t! I am also not writing this saying that this is…

This sin cursed world isn’t it!

Today’s news This is all I have today and sums up my thoughts lately. 
1 Peter 1:1-25 
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia,  who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade---kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith---of …
