You may have noticed that I removed my post about Kill la Kill that I put up earlier. That was in response to a long talk I had with both of my parents this evening. The combination of school and blog and Internet has really taken a lot from my time with my family, and even my time with the Word. I’ve been in there a little, but not a very large amount. This has led me to think a lot more about myself and my own desires, rather than the needs of those around me. My own pride blinded me, and I made some choices that were less-than-wise, such as watching Kill la Kill. My parents noticed this, so they encouraged me to step back and reevaluate my life by cutting out parts of it that sapped a lot of my time.
I will be honest, I was not very thrilled with this at first. But as I think about it now, that’s just another evidence of my own pride. I’ve seen myself becoming more and more distant as time went on, but I always kind of shrugged it off as a product of being busy. But where your heart is, your time and energy is as well, and I clearly didn’t have enough love for the more important areas of my life to make time for them.
So, starting from this week, Unsheathed will be on hiatus for a few months. It’s time for me to spend more time in the Word, digging deeper in order to grow and learn, and start to apply all these truths to my life. I need to make these thoughts more than ideas, but ideals that I live by. And that’s going to take a lot of effort and prayer on my part. But with the semester ending and a 3-week break, I should be able to devote a large amount of time into my Bible study before my normal rounds of busyness set in once again.
I’ll admit, I will miss this blog. I love being part of the Christian aniblogger community, and I’ve been so blessed by the people I’ve met through it. But what is important for me right now is to take some time off of my “blogger’s high”, to let go of some “me time”, and to get back to what I claim is my foundation: God.
As I take this time to step back, I’ll keep you all in my prayers. I hope that I can come back to you all fresh and rejuvenated, ready to share the experiences that God has given me and to encourage you in the right paths. 🙂
