In this thing called life it can be challenging to figure out what direction to go. As a young adult there are so many options and opinions floating around. It can be very intimidating to ask for help from people because it seems like judgement is all around. Don’t let that discourage you from doing the right thing! You cannot half step though. Either you’re all in or you’re not. The Bible talks about being Luke warm. God wants us to be in a committed relationship with him.
16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
How are you asking God to be your guide and you haven’t decided which way you’re going?
Even if you haven’t been to church all your life God has a plan for you. Before you were born there was a plan and purpose for your life. It is not too late to start a relationship with the Lord. It does not matter what you have done or where you have been. He will restore the years that you feel have been lost. All you have to do is surrender and say yes! Let God be the Lord of your life.
Easier than it sounds?! Absolutely! Surrendering your life and saying God you know what’s best so I’m giving it to you is hard. Especially when your heart isn’t connected. If you haven’t spent time in God’s presence it’s hard to let go. You have to know Him and His intentions. Once you do you’ll have more ease of letting go. You’ll know you’re in good hands.
I’m sure you’re saying I’ve chosen to follow God that’s where I’m going. Most days I’m headed in that direction. Yet you forgot that daily you fail to follow His way to love, forgive, show grace etc. Following Christ means you dedicate your life to Him. Dying daily and striving to live life according to His will. It is not easy being Christian is hard but the reward of heaven is well worth it.
If you have slid back into old habits that you know don’t line up with God’s will for your life and your wish is to reconnect with him say this prayer:
I need you and I realize I cannot make it on my own so I am humbly calling out you. I am tired of doing things my own way. Help me to do things Your way. I invite you into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. Fill the emptiness that is in me with your Holy Spirit and make me whole. Lord help me to trust you, help me to love you, help me to understand your grace, your mercy, and your peace. Thank you for saving me. Amen!
