i’m not gonna lie. That’s a great way to start off a blog post, huh? Every time I read my Bible it’s not to get out of it what I need. Sometimes I read my Bible because I need my Christian gold stars for the week so I can make God happy. Sometimes I do nice things for people because I want to make God happy, not because it’s the right thing to do. The thing is that no matter what I do, God loves me the same. Get that through your head, Adam. If I start trying to do all these things to get my allotment of Christian points, this whole Christian walk thing becomes work-based and all messed up. You can’t do enough works to buy God’s love.
I pray because I need to. I don’t really pray to make God happy. I do it to make my life easier. Talking to God can almost be awkward for me sometimes, though. You would think that having a relationship with God after all of these years it would just come natural every time.
How do I start today? How do I end this? “Amen”?
Then there’s those days I just don’t feel like talking at all. Maybe you feel like this sometimes.
I want everything in life to be tangible. So, naturally I want God to always be tangible. But, when I talk and prayers aren’t answered immediately, I get angry… Really angry. I think God has left me and then I don’t want anything to do with Him. I do this with even knowing in the back of mind that He’s never left me. That’s the thing. He is always listening.
Well, I haven’t done this in a while. I want to know how you are really doing. You talk and I’m listening. Of course God is listening.
What’s a prayer you need an answer to? Let’s pray for each other. Also, what are some blessings you’ve had in your life lately? I want to hear some good stuff.
