Blog Hop Question #4: A Raging Battle ~ Food isn’t the only thing that tempts to destroy our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. What other things do you currently crave more than God?
Wow this hit me like a ton of bricks, practically knocking me right off of my chair! I just went through this yesterday without even realizing it; and this is going to be really painful to admit out loud. Every time I tried to do my Bible study yesterday I broke down crying and ended up not doing anything. Several times, I went to lie down and fell asleep. I was so emotional! I cried on and off throughout the day and had no desire to do Bible study at all.
However, when it was time to get on the computer and check Facebook, Twitter and my blogs I had noooooo problems at all doing that. Obviously we see the problem here… I CRAVE my social networking time, I LOVE it. I can’t wait to get on and check my emails to see what is going on with this blog or that blog. I can’t wait to find out what books Amazon has on sale for my kindle…
What is wrong with me??? Why am I not feeling this way about God??? This just breaks my heart. Please pray with me,
Dear Heavenly Father,
I need you so desperately in my life right now. I am like a train about to wreck. There are so many things going on that I need you for and I am not coming to you. I have no idea why but please forgive me for not putting you first. Please give me the strength and the courage to stand strong against the pressures this life has against me. And thank you for being there, always, even when I don’t deserve it at all. In your precious name
