When we think of Christianity and going to church. Do we think of it as something that we want to do? Do we think of it as something we need to do? or Do we just do it out of routine?
When I was in church today listening to the preacher and the message that was preached, it was like God was putting something on my heart. Showing me that I needed to look at the reasons we do the things we do. He made me question my intent, my walk, my journey.
Do I pray enough? Do I read enough? Do I spend enough one on one time with the Lord and Savior of my soul? As I pondered, this just came to me. It wasn't as though I didn't know it before but really, I needed to reflect on it.
"If you want to know what your relationship is like with God, look at how much time you spend praying, reading the bible and spending one on one time with him."
Looking back, I noticed I have been slacking in these areas. I could spend less time on my phone, less time on Facebook, less time in many different areas and more time with God.
If you want to get technical any relationship you are in needs to have communication and attention. You need to spend time with the person you are having a relationship with and you need to communicate with that person.
The difference is with God that relationship should be the most important out of all the relationships. So, this was something I reflected on today.
Recognizing is only part of it though. Once we recognize something is wrong we must take action. We have to choose to continue in the wrong and know we are wrong or make changes.
I choose to change.
Hope this has helped you in some way.
