Going Deeper with God: My Experience

For some time now, I have really wanted to dive deeper into my relationship with God. I do not know what that will look like, or even, necessarily, what that will mean. I am passionate about this, though.

I want to walk in the journey along with others, for a few reasons. 1)I am sure it will help keep me accountable.

2) I am hopeful others will be able to grow in their own experience.

3)I like connecting with others about my adventures.

4)Other people may have similar experiences and maybe in some way, mine can help.

I was reading in my Bible, just flipping through the pages, I never know where to go with my reading, but I am hopeful over the next 30 days, God will lead me in the right direction. Even though I’ve been in church my whole life, there is still so much more to learn and know about God. I was reading in my https://amzn.to/2KZ2rBH Inspire Bible: NLT: The Bible For Coloring and Creative Journaling. I love coloring in this! I came across Psalms, and I took note of a verse: Psalm 1:2- But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.

I hope to come to a place where that is true for me, but for now, honestly, I am not there… yet. Over the course of the next few days, I intend to grow closer, and go deeper with God.

I am thankful for the gift of salvation of God’s Son, Jesus. I praise and thank Him for it. See some of my favorite songs to praise and worship with below: https://amzn.to/2KXMOdV (Who You Say I Am) https://amzn.to/2HpS5si (Do it Again).

I am committing to 30 days of shutting the door of my office, and spending time with God, uninterrupted, for 30 minutes. Even if that means eating potato chips (I hope not!) until I am ready to dive deep. I’ve seen this on the “War Room” movie, highly recommend it.https://amzn.to/2Zt2slp My cat has already interrupted this process, yet I am confident in God’s ability to do what He is going to do. He may say yes or no to the things I’m praying for, but at least I will know that He cares.

I felt God’s presence, while I was spending time with him this evening, reading His word, praying, and worshiping. Again, I do not know what to expect, and I am believing that I will grow closer to God, through this process.

I also spotted a book I had not read, standing on my bookshelf. “30 Days To Becoming A Woman of Prayer.” https://amzn.to/2Zmjfvl The chapter’s appear to be short, so I think it will be easy to keep up with. I am going to attempt to go through this as well. I will let you know how it works out! Would love for more people to try it out and share with me their feedback.

I hope you will consider walking along with me during this journey! If you, yourself, are interested in doing the same journey, I think that is awesome, and would encourage you to do so. I would also love to chat about how it’s going, your struggles and gains.

My struggle is and always has been- consistency. I can never seem to even so much as finish a book. My gain is that I spend time with the Lord, and in His presence, I know I am loved. (As are YOU!) I know being a christian is not an easy life, nobody ever said it was, yet I believe it is so worth it.

Cheers, please interact!
