I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's been experiencing so much adversity lately. It seems no matter how much I plan or try to move forward, something always seem to stop my progress or oppose me. I mean, it's getting ridiculous all the set backs that I've been experiencing. A large part of me wants to give up and just accept defeat and mediocrity. I can't. Knowing who God is, my rights as his child, and how he can see the things I cannot, prevent me from giving up. What I have to do is regain focus. I have to go back to investing in him, so we can be on the same page. I use to hear his voice so clearly. I use to be ae to trust him without question. When things get easy, I lose the relationship and don't depend on him as much. This is when the relationship starts to become estranged and I become more routine with him as opposed to organic. I love my father and always want us to be in sync. I understand that this means no matter what, I need to make time to invest. Daily reading his Word and making it applicable to my life. Listening to him more than speaking and practicing more discipline to be the best me that I can be for him. If my God is truly the most important to me, then I must prove that and trust that everything else will fall in to place. Thank you Lord for never giving up on me like I do you sometimes. - Love, your daughter.
