Hebraic Roots or Sacred Name Movement

I can't remember how I came across this article...

I have heard and seen some of the what the author details in her blog...there is good reason to be concerned.

Ultimately, spending time in HIS Word will result in a closer, more intimate walk/relationship, not the following of rules, regulations and rituals.

"It is not a law or a feast that shows my obedience, but that I am one with Him and seek to do His will for the praise of His Glory."

Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Day 239 - 245

I have to confess, I have had extremely dry spells in my walk with the Lord...He's obviously never moved, it is always I that needs to draw near unto Him...but this season has been particularly hard.  I am deeply examining myself, who am I, where am I going, am I even His?

For those reading, or if you just 'happened' upon this post and feel lead to pray for me, it is very much appreciated.  :-)

Day 233 ----> through what?

God?  Are you there God?  It isn't Margaret, it's me, Melissa.

Just wondering...Lord, you know I am really struggling right now to keep my priorities and time straight, lined up, honoring to You.  I am not doing a good job...really, like I need to tell you.  You know it all.  I have lost my study buddy... :-( so no more Proverbs.  I know, I know, I could, I should do it without a study buddy, but well, you know Lord, it just helps.  A lot.

Do you even want me here Lord, posting my read through the Bible?  Does it make a difference?  Am I glorifying You in and through this?  Is this edifying and encouraging anyone?  Even if it is only me?  Glad this box doesn't echo when I *talk* to it. :-)

I don't know this even a way you want me to spend my time?  Take that back.  Not my time.  Your time.  It is all yours...just like I am all yours.  I am the servant/slave, You are the Master...why is that so hard to comprehend?

Lord, let all that I do be only to glorify You.  Help me Lord, to fall deeper in love with You.  Guide my steps.  Guard my heart and mind,  Father, be my high tower, my refuge from the storms of life. Help me to continually seek protection and guidance from You.  Help me to honor You with every facet of my being.

Day 226 through 232

Now I'm questioning myself about why even post these...

Day 221-11 through 225-11

Day 221
Day 222
Day 223
Day 224

Day 225
Major issues with formatting...obviously I have taken time away from posting...still wrestling through with what Father would have me to do in regards to blogging along daily or not.  At this juncture, I am going to finish out the year with the outline, *just* in case someone wants/needs the format to read through chronologically and does not have a Bible that has it presented in that format.

I will, as Father leads, and time allows post musings.  To be quite honest and upfront, I have been wrestling greatly with the thoughts of why does it matter.  What have I to say or post about that would be of any great benefit or exhortation to anyone.  I know that sounds as if I am playing the violin solo...and is in some regards accurate.  I am trying, however, to get my thoughts, time, efforts, words that I write or speak to be a glorification of, for and to HIM.

I appreciate the prayers of the saints for me during this season of reflection and seeking to be a better and more accurate example of HIM.
