I’ve been feeling distant from God recently. I never read my Bible, I never pray (well, very rarely)…I’ve just lost passion or something. I’ve become so caught up with not bowing to the spirit of religion that I’ve become religious about being nonreligious (does that make sense?) My mind is so wrapped up with my ideal of simplistic and practical living that I’ve lost the reason for which I wanted to live simply in the first place. God calls us to a life of self-abandonment: denying ourselves and living in the light of the Son. God calls us to deny the world and live in his glory. I need to deny the things I want and live on what I need: God will supply everything we need. We need to stop trying to cover our asses and stop trying to make life comfortable for ourselves. I just….yeah, I get so caught up in this whole thing that I lose my passion for the source of it. God is at the root of my passion for simple living, yet my passion for Him has diminished. I don’t have a clue if I am making sense.
