My Own Story of Shallow and Lukewarm Living

I read this story from Set Apart Girl on how she has lived a shallow life, and it pierced me straight to the heart. This is exactly how I am living right now, and I am not even on a full time ministry.

I heard from the Lord, how he says that I've forgotten Him, my first love. And I was praying, "Lord, how have I forgotten you? Please show me how." Because in my mind, I wasn't doing anything wrong. But now it's clear to me, I wasn't doing anything wrong but I'm not growing either. I've become Lukewarm and He hates lukewarm.

15 I know your deeds,s that you are neither cold nor hot.t I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. - Revelation 3:15-16

I wouldn't realize this if Rye is around. By this time, if all things are back to how they used to be, I would be fretting to get things done so we could get in time to Lola's house for lunch and then church. It was routinal and the routine did not truly include God.

Now I am clear on what I have to do -- DRAW NEAR TO GOD and wait for Him to draw near to me. I need to chase God, pursue God, because He is my first love and because He is jealous.

Thank you Lord, that despite everything, You still love me. Thank you for the rebuke and discipline.

I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference. - Revelation 3:19

And thank you for this season, let Your will be done.
