when a book gets boring

First, the important thing:
GO WATCH THIS AWESOME YOUTUBE VIDEO - Techno Jeep by Julian Smith (blog won't let me post the link)

And now the actual post. ;-)
Have you ever started to read a book, and in the beginning you're excited and it's fast and every thing's going well? Then you get to about the middle of the book, and more exciting things come up, and you put the book down to go read other books, watch TV, etc? Then later you find the book, perhaps with the bookmark still in the pages, and you remember, "Oh, I was reading that!" and then you have to start over, and then you start to get bored and you fall into a vicious cycle? When you decide to break out of that cycle and read through the boring part, is it worth it? I find that it's always worth it to keep reading.

Is your relationship with God like that? You start strong, but then it becomes a daily routine and you lose interest? Have you stopped to look at other idols, maybe relationships, schools, something else? If yes, God is still waiting, just like that book you let fall to the side. I'm willing to bet that if you turn that next page it's more exciting than you thought. If you've felt like God's not been doing anything exciting this week, or month, or year, pick up the 'book' again.
