Let's Talk

I really want to have some deeper conversations with my friends but they are hard to start. We don't talk about our faith enough or challenge each other to be more Christ like. I want to be part of a group that cheers each other on in their faith and openly talks about struggles and victories we encounter. There is a difference between judgement and talking to a brother or sister about a problem with the right motives. We need checks and balances in our faith. I feel like we are too scared to even talk the talk, making it impossible to walk the walk.

A long time ago I began to understand what it meant to compare myself with Jesus instead of others around me. Understanding it is easy, doing it is way harder. My devos tonight talked about how everyone has a different path, which I think goes along with not comparing ourselves to others. We are all different and God has different paths for each of us. It's easy to be jealous of others but being a Christian was never about easy. We need to celebrate with others and rejoice in our own path as well. Don't wish you had just a little more, or were someone else for a week. God paved the perfect road just for you :)

     One of my biggest fears is that I will be alone. I like to be by myself a lot but it's only nice to be by myself if it is by choice. It kills me when I find out all my friends hung out and I didn't get the invite. The other night I made plans with a friend and they never came and I still don't know why. I got so mad at them but then I realized the problem was my own. I was alone and afraid they just bailed for no reason. Tonight I was replaying my lonely night when I released something.
     Yes this person bailed on me, but how often do I bail on my prayers? I promise God all the time that He will get my attention at night. Night comes and I find myself watching Iron Chef instead of doing my devotions! Yet God forgives me and listens when I get to him. I'm humbled to think that I live on my time instead of His. I encourage all of you to dive into your relationship with God instead of wasting your time, which is really God's time.
