I just deleted my last two Prayer Power posts, about the Ten Commandments. I think I was getting off track from the original purpose of this part of my blog - my prayer journey. Those two Ten Commandment posts were more like Faith Journey posts, and they really had nothing to do with prayer, or its place in my life. Some Followers of my blog might have ended up with it, but hopefully, it will not be a problem.

Sometimes, I get sidetracked from my purpose, from the reason I do some things. Writing every night, or almost every night, a person can become opinionated and end up with an overdeveloped sense of self-importance. I was afraid that this was happening to me. Who was I to think I could ramble on about something as powerful and important at those guidelines from God himself? Thousands of years have passed since they were handed down. I'm sure scholars have gone on and on about their purpose, in depth.

For me, I have enough on my plate just dealing with my own day-to-day issues. And one issue, it seems, is to become a bit more humble about my place in this world.

Father, thank you for catching me before I got any further; I pray that I have not pushed any readers away, and even more than that, I pray that you guide my thoughts and actions, that they follow your plan, not mine.

I have been so MIA when it comes to blog rading, so dont know what you had written, but I will say that whatever it may have been, I am sure it was written with a pure heart.

And if you felt that you needed to re-assess, you did. How awesome it is that we are able to go to Him for guidance, direction, forgiveness, peace, love, mercies...

...happy to get a chance to catch up on some blog reading.

Blessings & Aloha!
I have an award (aka bloghug) for you at my place. I do appreciate you, and thank you for coming by and for all your past comments!
