What is holding you back from going deeper in your relationship with God? Time? Intimidation? Not feeling like the Bible applies to you everyday life? Seems to hard?
I must say without pride or conceit, time is not a problem. Since I fell in that pit 4 years ago I have consistently started each morning in quiet time with God-reading scripture, reading devotionals, praying and journaling. I know that every time I open my Bible, there will be something there that applies to my life. And yes the Christan life is hard but it is full of so much joy. What I struggle the most with in this question is intimidation!
God knows my every thoughts, my every action, even before I act or speak. He has known all my failures before they occurred and He continues to love me to call me to "Feed My sheep". It is not about my failures, it is about what I can allow God to do "in and through me". He can take my unworthiness, "my ordinary life and do extraordinary things". Intimidation will have no hold on me if I "live in radical obedience to God", that is "Biblical obedience"-seeking Him daily, loving Him more, becoming more like Him. This has become my daily prayer:
"God, I want to see You.
God, I want to hear You.
I say YES to YOU."
"Whatever God says do, DO IT!"
