feeling distant

i've been feeling quite a bit of conviction lately.  and honestly i think it's because this is the most distant i have felt from God in a long time.  i've been trying to focus on just being myself and doing things that make me happy, and last night i realized that i haven't read my bible in months, or just taken the time to talk to God one on one.  i've been focusing so much on myself and my happiness that i've failed to focus on what is the most important, and that's my relationship with God.
i've been so happy lately and so content with life, and the fact that i've let my relationship with God slip hasn't even crossed my mind until just now and that bothers me.
why do i let such an important relationship slip through the cracks so easily?  if i felt distant from my husband, or a close friend i would do everything in my power to get that closeness back.  so why don't i do this with God?  why is it so hard for me to keep that relationship so secure?
so this weekend i am going to take some time to focus on my most important relationship.  i'm going to dust off my bible and open it up and just start reading.  i'm going to sit down and just have a conversation with God.  i'm going to talk to him like i would my husband or my close friend.
i'm going to strengthen my relationship with my maker.  and what makes me feel a little better, is the fact that i can feel as distant as i've ever felt, but i know God is always there with open arms ready to let me back in.

  3. You just took every feeling I've been having for the last year and put them into words. Every day is struggle to put God before ourselves. You may stray off course but he will always restore.

  5. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about:

    Thanks again.
