I remember tapping out a blog in a hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon. I hadn’t been blogging long – it was sometime early last year – and it was a novelty to be able to do this from somewhere other than home.
It had come together well, all there ready to publish, hit the appropriate button – and it all went blank. I’d lost the signal, hadn’t been saving the draft copy as I went along, and there was nothing there!
Needless to say, I have changed my habits!
The blog got re-written from memory, after I had forgiven myself.
We are not always in a place where there is a good God signal. You can usually tell that though, communication breaks up, things need repeating, and listening is more effort.
Forgiveness is usually the best way to move to get a better signal – whether it is forgiving others, yourself, or even God.
Having the habit of blogging develops good habits to blog.
So it is with prayer.
I wonder if old Shaky knew that?
