Re: Feel like I am losing touch with God?
hey i gotta give you props for you sense of awareness of what is going on. you sound very mature for 16 and like djrod. said, the fact that you feel like there is a problem is a good thing. after reading your post i gotta say it sounds like condemnation, chich comes out of our own flesh but it is TOTALLY a trick of the enemy. i see a couple things that could be happening. one, if this new church is inpiring you to read your bible more then that is a great thing. and if the sermons hit close to home then this also is a good thing, so now that you are on a path toward true salvation instead of just goin through the motions (like most christians) satan is going to notice you a little bit more. see, God has a plan for EVERYONE but not everyone wants to step up and do the work. you sound like someone the Lord really wants to do something big with. and once again because of that you are setting off the enemies radar. i know what it is like. it is the reason i stayed luke warm for so long but, TRUST ME. serving the Lord with all your heart is the best choice you wil ever make. i have only been serving Him, like 100%, for about a year and it has been hard but i am getting to a point where i can see so clearly how real He is but even bigger how much HE REALLY LOVES ME and ALL OF US!!! so there is no special formula to life but one of the other things i want to point out from my own walk is that doubt is by far one of the biggest things the enemy will use against us. he now has you questioning if God is real right after you admitted how much you see Him in nature. the statement you made lines up perfectly with His word. idk the exact verse but even the Bible mentions how clear it is to man that God is real through His creation, but i digress….DONT LET THE ENEMY STEAL YOUR FAITH. you know in your heart God is real and all you have to do is ask Him. haha He will not be offended. just be real with Him.”Lord i want to believe but i just dont know where you are right now. PLEASE show me you are real!” and believe me He will. the “desert” times in life are always hard but God says in Jerimiah that we will find His favor in the desert and believe me, the dry timers in life can be a real drag but they are only temporary and you will grow so much in these times so just hang in there. you are in a really good place and remember that God is HUGE…like really really really huge. hahaha He is always working behind the scenes to take care of stuff you havent even come to yet so just be encouraged to know that He does have big things in store for you and you will be just fine. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him” Rom 8:28
