Hey everyone! So lately I haven’t really been as on fire for Jesus for a lot of reasons. The first of which is the fact that I’ve been pretty busy with life in general. Things get busy and we often accidentally push away Christ. Instead of pushing away Christ during the busy times, I want to encourage and remind you to lean towards Christ. Always make time for Him even on the busy or stressful days.
I know that this is a lot easier said than done, but it is possible! Everyone goes through phases of being totally on it and totally falling apart. If you’re feeling like you have been pushing Him away, I recommend first of all praying. Pray that God will light your heart back on fire for Him. This is something that I pray about probably everyday, and it has helped my faith so much.
Something else that helps is having a specific time during the day just for prayer, worshipping, or reading your Bible. This time ensures that you’re at least getting a little closer to God everyday and learning more about Him and His love for us. I also have a specific place to worship God which helps me get in the right mindset. I like to have twinkly lights on and some coffee just because it helps me relax and really focus on what God is laying on my heart.
I feel like being a teenage makes this hard just because everything seems like the end of the world. I feel like this when any issue at all happens but it’s just because I am an emotional teenager haha. So when you’re feeling upset or sad then just yield towards Christ! His Word always calms me down and helps me get back into my eternity mindset. There’s gonna be a lot of little problems going on in our lives literally all the time, but His love is perfect. We have to remember to get through the rough times because if we keep pushing towards Him, He will reward us in Heaven.
The more you go to bible studies or worship, you will stay more on track in your faith and not fall off of the bandwagon. We must make time for Him because He is the center of our lives, not us! If it’s all for Him, then we need to live every moment of our lives for Him.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act
If there’s something that you feel like you prioritize over your time with God everyday, try to abstain from it for a while when you need to spend time diving into The Word. I know that I personally struggle with being on my phone too much, so whenever I’m having my Jesus time I always shut down my phone and leave it downstairs. Whatever your distraction is, try to actively eliminate it so you can fully focus on God.
Remember to make time for Him and He will show His love to us daily 💓- Cami
