[original post April 29, 2016]
I’ve been needing and looking for something more lately. It’s disheartening when you can feel your soul is lost, and you know where to turn as a Christian. But you need guidance. Then it’s funny how God has a plan and let’s in fall into your lap. It’s so true that he puts people in your life at just the right moments when you need them most.
I’m so blessed to have this dear friend who means more to me than she probably knows. She swoops in and with only a small text or a few words reminds me where I need to be. Luckily through her I started reading a book, Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst. And through this book I found an app, First 5, which was created to help you easily study the bible. It may not be something I get to every day, as I’ve tried devotional apps before and I lost my drive. But because this one is interactive and asks for your response at the end of each study, I’m hoping I’ll have more drive to succeed and grow with God.
It’s not because I want to as a fad. It’s because I need it. My heart needs this strengthened relationship. My relationships need this strengthened relationship. My actions need it. Basically my whole life needs it. I’ve been lost for some time now. But I’m finally ready to admit I need something more, and I’m really excited right now about the prospect of letting go of labels and just diving in to becoming a better person.
I know I won’t ever be perfect. But I was created to be someone special who acts and loves through Him and I want to be able to give back to my relationshio instead of just using Him when I selfishly need to.
