Heyyy party people! Today I'd like to share with you what God's been doing in my life. God's rocked my world lately, and I am just sooo extremely thankful for Him.
For the longest time, I've kind of lacked fire in my walk with God. In fact, I felt myself running from Him, straying, and avoiding the fact that I was living out of His will. Then, my Heavenly Daddy scooped me up, despite my defiance, and brought me safely where He knew was best for me. A place where my heart could be free. A place where I could flourish. A place where I could be happy. The very fact that He works so actively in my life personally is absolutely amazing. He's protective and loving. Faithful and loyal. Always there. I've heard about God's faithfulness and love my entire life. But now, more than ever, I feel His realness. It's only something you can describe when you experience Him yourself.
For awhile, I had been holding myself back because I wasn't surrendering to Him. I was stubborn. But now that I've completely let go, I'm in a place where I can easily grow closer to God. So! Let me tell you one of the most impacting things I've done lately. For the past two months, I've spent time praying every day, by writing my prayers out in a journal. I pray longer, deeper, more consistently, and more eagerly. Like every day, I just can't wait to talk to God! Then, I can read past prayers and see how God has worked in my life. It's definitely going to be a dear treasure to me in the future.
I love how God is always there. Ya know? Like, I'm a total night owl, so I'm usually awake when the rest of my family is asleep. Feelin lonely? No worries! God's awake! I can sit down and talk to Him for a 1 a.m. chat. I don't have to schedule an appointment or set a time to meet Him for dinner. I never get His "voicemail." haha. He's there. All you have to do is talk to Him. He LOVES YOU. So stinkin much, we can't even comprehend it. He will never walk out on you. He never gives up on you. He will never hurt your feelings. He will always be true.
"You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord." ~ Jeremiah 29: 13, 14. Ah this verse. This I have experienced firsthand, and let me tell ya, it's so true! Draw near to Him dear friends. And He will draw near to you. Get to know Him. God is seriously your best friend! You really should hang out with Him! I wish I would've gotten to know Him more intimately a long time ago. Oh well! It's never too late! Seriously, go talk to Him! He's waiting.
