Holy Reset



In our advanced, technological era, most of us are pretty familiar with the need to reset. When it comes to computing, according to good ol’ Wikipedia, “a reset clears any pending errors or events and brings a system to normal condition or an initial state, usually in a controlled manner. It is usually done in response to an error condition when it is impossible or undesirable for a processing activity to proceed and all error recovery mechanisms fail.”

I’ve definitely had my share of "error conditions." I’m grateful that, in Christ, we have been reset and, thankfully, it’s not just a one time occurrence! I like the way Webster’s puts it… to set again or anew. Yes! Because of God’s faithful love to us, we’re given a holy reset … His new mercies each and every morning.

The past few months have been challenging personally; hence the silence here on the blog. For a season, writing became difficult and even undesirable, and there were many reasons why. But there’s also been some truly amazing experiences as of late; much to rejoice about even in the midst of hardship. I haven’t even been sure where to pick up in my writing but I can't use that as an excuse. It's seriously just time for the "activity to proceed."

So, here I am once again… resetting the error condition of my writing. I am grateful that God’s holy reset applies to every area of life – including my inconsistency in the blogosphere! Time to get back to work. There is much I look forward to sharing... by His grace.


pressing on toward the goal,
Jenn
