Go Back to God, July 24, 2015 Daily Reflection

2013-02-19 17.53.03God created you, gave you life, loved you, and gave you parents. Your parents guided you to God through their love for you. They provided every need you ever had. They taught you how to love yourself and God. God placed within you a pure heart. Like a little piece of Him was hidden in your soul always longing to be closer to Him. As a child you found Him. You talked to Him. You knew Him. As you aged you went to Him, depended upon Him, and loved Him as your father. In your times of confusion, loss and sorrow you turned to Him. God provided for you, blessing you abundantly.  He comforted you through your trials and loved you through your losses. He gave you wings to fly and become independent. God gave you free will and you slowly slipped away from Him. As you began to take care of yourself, your family, your home, your career and your life, you began to think you needed God less. As you became self- reliant your trust in God began to wane.

Many adults slip into this phase in their life. We wonder why there is a midlife crisis maybe letting God go contributes to it? So, the question is how do we get back to God? If the relationship seems distance I can assure you, God is not the one who moved. God is right there next to you. All you have to do is talk to him, read his word, find a community that believes and make him an active part of your life again. Just because you forgot about God, walked away, or just left him for a while doesn’t mean the relationship is over. God never ends the relationship. Start over. Every point in our lives is a moment to start again. Today, say a prayer and start back down that journey to get to know God once more. He is waiting with open arms to take you back. I guarantee this!
