Look at this post by Marissa. Now look at this post by Abigail. And this post by Hannah. And do you see Bekah's post? And finally, read Morgan's post.
Now, I find this rather amazing. It's not exactly awesome that so many of us are realizing we are leaving God out of our lives, but I find it cool that there's all of a sudden so many posts about this, right when we all need to read them.
I haven't exactly been shutting God out of my life lately, but I know I've been feeling that I really need to step up my relationship with Him. Yeah, I pray daily, but I usually only read my Bible if I have to. I love church, but I need to work on living what I learn.
Now, I try my best to remember to read my Bible --and actually enjoy it and learn something from it-- and to live everything I'm taught in church and from reading the Bible on my own. But I know it's not like it should be... I really want to fix this, but I need to want it so much it actually happens. As much as I want to strengthen my relationship with Him, I still forget stuff or put it off.
I have a fairly good relationship with Him, and it really shines through at times, but I want more. I want it to be unmistakable. I want my quiet time to be something I can't go without, not something that gets shoved to the back of my mind when there's other things I'd rather do. God should be my first priority... as soon as I wake up, I should spend time with Him. Buuuuut I don't.
I say I'll work on this, but I always forget after a couple of days. It's sad, but true.
So yeah, that was kinda cool that everyone posted about this at once.
