It amazes me that…when you are one with God, you know the instant you start to drift away.
Ironic, isn’t it?
I realized that the moment I start to feel convicted, I have to catch myself and get to the root of the problem. I felt that tonight. It was weird. It was almost like there was a huge wall that went up between me and God. I realized that what I was doing was not glorifying Him at all.
Thank you Lord for this conviction and please forgive me.
I was doing DT this week and something really stood out to me. Apparently, there are 3 ways we can lose intimate fellowship with the Lord.
1) when we focus on the world and the things of the world, on pleasures and activities, or on other people and relationships. we lose our focus on the Lord.
2) when we fail to guard our heart and mind. when temptations come, our strenth to resist is not strong.
3) or when we intentionally resist the Father’s will through disobedience.

Man, I will be the first one to admit that this whole Christianity thing is not easy. You know the things up there I just listed?…yeah I never had to worry about when I was wearing my Christian mask. It’s almost like…ignorance was bliss haha. However, I’ve learned that once you start to depend on Him and have full faith that He will come through, all the challenges and struggles that you face…you start to see the purpose in all of them. HIS purpose in all of them. His purpose for YOU. and the reward you get for having a relationship with God…well. it’s indescribable i tell ya.
anyway…I was going to sleep a while ago but obviously that didn’t work out very well. i’m going to leave you with this verse. sort of like…a proclamation.
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but [I] trust in the name of the Lord our God.” -Psalm 20:7
