Have you ever been in church and just not felt anything? It’s just another Sunday at church, same songs, same pastor, same message, same people, same seats, same everything.. Nothing is different than the week before? RUN! Where? To the Word of God! When you are pursuing Christ in an every day relationship, it’s not boring! It’s not normal! It’s not every day!! You are growing and changing every day. You are getting closer to Christ every day!!! Going a week without seeing or talking to your spouse or your absolute best friend in the whole wide world or nine years to your dad is CRAZY and nobody does it on purpose! How could you catch up on a whole week with your spouse once a week for a hour? It doesn’t happen!! Even if you only meet once a week with your best friend, I bet you anything you talk to him or her every day or close. You see what I’m saying? You can’t expect to have a living, breathing, exciting, growing, changing, full of life relationship with God if you don’t talk to Him every day, if you don’t read His word every day, and you just go to church for an hour on Sundays or maybe an hour on Wednesdays too. Don’t get caught up in the normal and the every week. God doesn’t call us to have a normal relationship with Him. He calls us to be RADICAL! He doesn’t call us to be comfortable!!!! If you don’t feel anything different about God than you did yesterday or last week or last year or when you were in high school, you need to spice up your relationship. Seek Him EVERY DAY! Don’t lose the blessings of knowing Him by just going to church and doing the same thing every day, doing the same thing every week. If you’re a Christian, you have the least boring life in the whole entire world!! Following God and being in His will is the MOST exciting, thrill seeking, out of (my) control, chaotic, fun, life changing journey I’ve ever been on! I never get used to it!! It’s never normal! It’s never an every day, boring, routine. Yeah I might read my Bible every day, same time, same place, same version but He surprises me every day. Seriously every day. And when I am starting to get comfortable, HA God puts me right back in my place.. uncomfortable and different! Don’t get used to it!! Don’t forget how it feels! He is never changing but we are always changing! He loves us SO MUCH, don’t ever forget that! Don’t ever forget how it feels to be loved by your Heavenly Father. It’s the most amazing feeling in the entire world! He loves us just the way we are but He loves us enough to not keep us that way!!!
