It's Our Time To Make Time

It's Our Time To Make Time

All you have to do is call and he will answer.

It’s so easy to get caught up in life. You get so busy with this, that, and the other and you just don’t know what to do. It seems like the natural thing to do when we get stressed is just push God away first and get to him when we can, which most of the time doesn’t even end up happening.

We let the less important "things" take over our lives instead of turning to the most important. Why is that though? Why do we push away the one who can help us the most, the one who knows us best and the one who is always there waiting for us to call for help?

Most of us have planners that keep up with our agenda day by day and even hour by hour, but I bet the majority of us don’t have a place in there that we are scheduled to devote our time to God, myself included. I still haven’t figured out why though.

Why do I feel the need to take on so many tasks, stressing myself out, trying to do it all alone, when He is right beside me the whole time? It's like deep down inside I know I should at least be starting and ending my day with Him, but I get so busy trying to figure out my life, rather than talking to him and just letting it all fall into place.

It seems like taking the time to pray and talk to God is kinda like making yourself go workout. You know you need to, but you try to find so many other things to do and resort back to that as your last option. In the end though, after you get done running or working out, you feel so much better and end up being glad you did it. Somedays I feel like that’s how it is making time for God.

All it takes is that one time to just do it and from then on out just make it a habit, but of course not because you have to...but because you want to. That's how our relationship should be with God. He should be our go-to guy, our best friend, and the person we tell everything to. After all, he does know us like no other.

While I am not by any means perfect, I have realized making time for Him will only benefit you in the long run. It will help you in so many ways, encourage you, and make you stronger as a person and as a Christian. The Lord is there and is waiting for you. All you have to do is call and he will answer.

Never forget:

God is never too busy to listen, so don’t be too busy to talk to him.

Don’t find time for Him every day, make time for him everyday.

If you make time with God your first priority, everything else will fall in place.

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

I Learned to accept myself by learning forgiveness

When you do well, God will always accept you!

Genesis 4:7 – "If you do well (believing Me and doing what is acceptable and pleasing to Me), will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well (but ignore My instruction), sin crouches at your door; it's desire is for you (to overpower you), but you must master it."

In our Christian walk there is something that seems to be very hard to grasp. In the word of God, it states that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. What happens when what seems to not surprise God, surprises us so much that we start to take on the belief that we cannot accept ourselves, or even be accepted by God.

Acceptance is defined as "the action or process of being received as adequate or suitable." In Genesis 4:7 it states plainly that when we do well, we will in fact be accepted by God. But often it is our own belief system that gets in the way of us believing that simple truth. But let's be honest God does accept us, every second, every minute, every hour of every day. If we are doing well and doing our best to live a life that is pleasing to Him than we are automatically accepted.

As sons and daughters, we need to remember that if we are doing well we are accepted by God. But also, we need to learn self-acceptance. We need to get to a place where we forgive ourselves completely and take up the love we have for ourselves. We are more than our mistakes and the things that have happened in the past. We do not have to punish ourselves because Christ already took that punishment on the cross. So today sons and daughters, realize that you are accepted by God, and then learn to accept yourself. This is a journey not a sprint. Let go of self-condemnation and enter into acceptance.
