Dry

This is probably obvious.  You and your kids walk with God, your time in the Word and prayer with your wife, the journey of following Christ, will not be consistently exciting and awe inspiring.  There will be those times, but there will also be times that are just ordinary, or dry.  You will read a passage together or engage in a conversation about some spiritual truth and at the end it will feel like you are just going through the motions.

But that is true in any long term thing we do is it not?  There are natural ebbs and flows in our understanding and development.  We have to work through them, continue to do what we know to do and look at our heart and see if there is anything blocking our relationship with Him.  That may or may not be the case.  Dry does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong.  Ask.  He has promised to respond, James 1:5.  Regardless, we are to press on, Philippians 3:14 – 16.

Hang in there.

  1. I would add this scripture: "If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" - http://bible.us/Luke11.13.ESV
