I am going to share something very personal, this may shock some of you. But I feel it needs to be said.
I find being a Christian incredibly hard. I don’t pray enough.
I go days without reading the Bible or even thinking about it.
I often act in ways that are against God’s will. I am shocked at how self-centered I can be.
I miss church in favor of sleeping in.
I am a struggling Christian.
Now, I love God and know 100% that He is real and that Jesus died for our sins so that we might be in communion with Him.
But I love sin when I should be loving God.
I am being reliant on myself when I should be reliant on God.
I am bringing attention to myself when I should be bringing attention to God.
I am a struggling Christian who yearns for a deeper relationship with God. So I commit this day to push on ‘towards the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3:14)
