Re-post. Couldn’t have said it better myself…
Sometimes we fall really far from God. Sometimes by the time we realize it, it seems like it’s too late. It’s never too late for God.
Have you ever gotten distracted from God? You may not realize it at first because it’s so gradual, but when we feel that something’s missing, we go to these empty wells, these pleasures that the world offers to try and replace God’s love. But since God’s love is irreplaceable, nothing the world can give can satisfy the hunger for God.
Sometimes we can be stubborn, denying the fact that we’re running away, just as an excuse to consume what the world throws at us. Romans 12:2 says “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (NIV)
So turn away from the junk food the world is giving your spirit, go for the real deal. It took me a really long time to come clean and lay my burdens down, but there is always hope. Never give up on yourself, but most importantly, never give up on God. He made the universe, so He can heal you and pull you out.
