Effort

To be fully invested in anything you need to put forth effort. As a self-motivated individual, I know this all too well. However, there is a discrepancy between knowing and acting, and yet another in truly knowing with one’s soul and heart and spirit or simply knowing with one’s mind.

My spiritual life has been lackluster as of late, and every little reminder of this fact I seem to brush aside and get annoyed by. I know in my mind that this needs to change, and I know deep down in my heart as well, but I need to put the extra effort into it. I pray that I will feel this and desire this and truly know this in my heart and soul, not just in my brain. 

I long for a renewal and a revival of my spiritual convictions and I hope that you will join me in prayer for this as well. 

It’s time to devote my effort and priorities into addressing Him and His plan for me. I need to trust, to believe, to heal, and to pray. I want to feel my spirit move in joy, worship, and awe again. So it’s time to get my head out of my head, literally, and into my heart and soul. 

Lord, show me the love I don’t deserve and revive my soul to thirst for you. x

    Thank you for being so transparent! This is so encouraging, and I will definitely be praying for you :) I had a dry spell in my spiritual life just a few weeks ago, and God did things I would have never imagined to rekindle the flame :) He works amazingly if we just ask Him to! Keep praying ❤️

      Thank you so much! I’ve found that transparency is the best way to face the reality of these things.
