Dear Beautiful You,

Sometimes it's hard to hear God speak through all the noise.

When you finally have found the time to read your Bible, to pray and to spend time at the feet of Jesus, you can't concentrate. What went wrong? Why is it so hard to focus?

Re-organize Your Priorities

I can struggle in this area as much as you can. The thing is: when life get's hard or when we're busy and stressed, the first thing we let go of is going to church. Then we stop spending time with God. Maybe we didn't spend much time with Him at all. Because we first need to make sure we're ready for school or work, right? Then family and friends, so we're social enough. Then..whatever comes..

But, what if the Bible tells us differently? What if we get so busy FOR God, we forget to listen TO Him?

In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Proverbs 3:6 (TLB)

A Random Helpfull Quote

dessert, life, and quotes image

I read this quote again and I realized that spending time with God is like eating a dessert. It's the best part of the meal called life. Why not start with what we enjoy the most? Besides that, you have to know how important it is to spend time with God. It fills you up with peace.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

The Bible tells us how different our lives become when we first seek God and His Presence. When we gave Him our worries and the things we go through, we can really focus again on the tasks we need to fulfull that day.

God First Means Me Second

God doesn't force us to spend time with Him, because He hates us. NO. He knows we NEED it! He loves us more than any human ever will!

It can be difficult to trust God for real and to put Him first in all you do. That's why we need the Holy Spirit to be able to do this!

How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Have you experienced[a] so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it? I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. Galatians 3: 3-5 (NLT)

As you read, it's a warning from Paul to lean on His strength. It's foolish to try to become perfect in your own strength. And, please, don't try to be perfect. Try to get to know Him better. Try to praise and thank Him as much as you can. Because when you do that, you will love Him more and more every day of your life.

Fall and stand up! Start over!

It's okay to fall. as long as you keep standing up!
