Hi there! If you are new here, please subscribe by email or RSS feed to get new posts (there’s a Connect bar here on the right with cute buttons for that). I post 3 or 4 times per week. That adds up to loads of goodness per fortnight. By the way, I’m so glad you stopped by.

Top Ten Signs that You Need Renewal
1. Observable deficits in enacted Fruit of the Spirit. (i.e. less qualities of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, and self-control)
2. You find yourself perceiving things others say as personally offensive, or as direct attacks.
3. You are “venting” more online.
4. You feel unloved.
5. Posting on your blog or being active in social media, or online makes you feel significant. (Accordingly, not getting that sort of instant gratification creates feelings of emptiness or frustration.)
6. You’re writing about your stuff rather than really working through it.
7. Increased tension in your face-to-face relationships, while giving greater significance to internet-based relationships.
9. You feel spread thin like too little butter pulled across toast. Or you feel toasted, or similar to toast, in any respect.
10. You’re in a creative slump.
If some of these ring true, spiritual refocusing and guidance will create more creative (and general) energy and renewal in your life.
What is your tip off that you need renewal?

Beyond this blogging series…is an alliance of committed bloggers to keep Christian blogging a ministry of integrity. Integrity is a word I love, because its literal meaning is wholeness. When we are emotionally and spiritually healthy, we are whole as message-bearers. As people. We lack for nothing.
