Collaborate without boundaries

Day 20 - Repent and Return

  • Comments 2

I gave my life years ago, then strayed away, then renewed my relationship, then strayed away again. Each time I relied on a "crutch" or person to carry me through my relationship with God, to remind me to go to church, remind me to do my devotionals. This time I'm doing it without a crutch or person to constantly remind me, I'm doing this for me. I do have a great support system that keep me accountable, but I'm no longer going to rely on them to build my relationship with God for me. I have to do this because I want to, because I want to feel His love. I've felt a tugging inside, I've noticed that He is there listening even if I don't think He is. He comes to me in a song, in a thought, in a dream, or late at night. I prayed the prayer out loud and felt at peace. I hope the more I dive in, the less lonely I'll feel when I don't have my little one to keep me company in the apartment. 

  • I have to think of it as not giving my life to Him as a specific moment in time, but as a continued, daily thing to do.  For it's a journey and there will be ups and downs, but we need to keep on the journey the best we can and not let the world or evil bring us off course in this journey.  

    He will fill all your voids.

  • I can't even count the times when I've felt Him right beside me. In good and bad. Years ago, weeks ago, days ago or hours ago. He's always there. That's why I want to worship Him so much now. He never gave up on me.

    It is great to have those Christian influences and friends to help keep us accountable. I just asked my preacher today to help me. I have made the CHOICE to love Him daily. Even when I don't want to I force myself to and within minutes I'm back on track. The love of God is amazing.

    "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go"
