If you weren't in church during the 80's/90's, chances are, you probably have no concept of what a revival looks like for the church.
Growing up, I thought revival was a gathering that people had because the Spirit settled in one place more than another.
Due to my profession as an author, I've come to have an appreciation of the meaning of a word. I realize that some Bible scholars and pastors dig into the original Greek and Hebrew meanings of words. I, myself, must have slept during English because I find that understanding the actual meaning, rather than the assumed meaning, of English words is pretty useful as well.
Just for today, ponder on this: Revival "renewed attention to or interest in something".
Wow! If each of us sought a renewed attention to God, a renewed interest in God, what would our lives look like?
The Bible tells us that God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. (Hebrews 13:8) But what we have to remember is that we're not God, so while He is the same, we can never get bored of Him because there will always be more and more and more of Him for us to learn about. His ways go far beyond our understanding (Hebrews 11, yes the whole chapter)
Maybe you have pondered the same thing I have pondered. Why don't I see revival in my church, in my city, heck, I'd even take my state?
To which I have to challenge myself, why don't you have revival in you, Nicole?
Revival starts with a renewed interest in God, a renewed attention to God. Am I seeking God, am I enamored (strongly fascinated) by all that He is? Once this is happening in my life, there will be revival within me. And when we are so fired up and interested in God that is when others will begin to take interest as well.

What is this blog about? You mean, I'm supposed to have a purpose? Ok, if that's required then my purpose is life.
