Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.
I fall into many temptations and there are times when I know there is a trap, but I just let myself fall. I start to regret that the moment I hit the ground and guilt slams on you like a hard brick. But what I find amazing is that God is willing forgive you no matter what you do, no matter how far you go… when you come back to Him, He’ll welcome you with open arms. Unbelievable, I know. But open your eyes and start believing it ’cause it’s true. We have a God who cares out there, who loves you, who wants to talk to you and listen to what you have to say. You may not see Him at the moment, you may barely hear His still and small voice, but He’s there for you.
There are times when we drift away from Him, it may be because of the people we are with, our busy schedule, discouragement, it may be a ton of reasons… sometimes we barely notice it, but as time passes by the fire slowly fades until it’s totally out. Life may seem like it has no problems then and you get comfortable sticking like glue to that sin of yours- nothing bad is happening anyway, it won’t hurt. (Yet). Then when all comes crashing down, who would you run to?
Remember that God is always there for you with open arms, don’t be afraid. Return home. Yes, people in church will ask a lot of questions, lecture you, welcome you, pray for you, but thats part of growing in Christ- you have to endure it. It’s hard. Especially once you’ve been gone for so long- you may not be as close as you were with God and it may take time, but He’s there all the time… so what is there to worry about?
You know what is the best way to prevent this? by reading His word, His life guide, His love letter for you. For you. Read it, meditate on it, and learn to love it… and it will keep you strong and holding on. But I tell you now, its hard to believe in something we do not understand- so before you start your day or end your night… pray.
So if you feel that you are sinking, even just a little, acknowledge it and turn to God- the more you feel like not praying, that’s when you should PRAY. Remember the acronym, PUSH? Pray Until Something Happens. And I’m telling you, it’s the best feeling ever- having, yet again, another beginning and a new start and I encourage you to make it right with God. He’s waiting for you. 🙂
God bless you, my lovelies!
What keeps you from God? And how would you deal with it?
