Have you ever noticed people who do as they please with no self conscience or worries?The type of people you can look at and just think how it would be so difficult for that person to change? Well these people are an example of being caught up in the world its self constantly worried about now not their future they live day by day with no direction. I have been observant for the past 2 years and came to a conclusion on why people are like this, because at one point of time i was the same way. So now knowing what i know i look back out of curiousity why i was like this and for those with no answer to this problem im gonna tell you what i know from personal experience and what i think it is.
First of all when you live for the world and worry about materialistic things or trying to fit it your using up so much energy and effort you seem to block out what your future will hold and literally fear facing reality so you ignore these thoughts. When your lost and caught up with all the non productive things your spending so much time stressing out and trying to be a follower. No some dont realize this and may disagree because usually when their toes get stepped on they take offense and come up with so many excuses on top of hatefully disagreeing so they can buy more time to shut this fact out of their life. No matter how many times you try to convince yourself everything is ok its not! You may temporaily shut it out, but I promise you it will be right back over and over.
Why not face it now stop running when the whole time you your running backwards in the race getting overlapped by your demons you could be using the effort running forwards, learning how to adapt and change your life style for the best! In order to begin this new life and walk with God you have to find it in you to believe deep down he is worth living for, and when you do you will see all the new efforts you make will have a purpose we have to have something to live for! Most of those you see with no direction going in a continous circle are the ones who don't have anything to live for this is why it look so easy for them and why it looks as if it doesnt bother that person but it does believe me. These people have no peace or arent truly happy. They might put on the front like they are but its all fake and empty dont fall for it or get sucked in, its not ok believe me.
I know it may seem tough or boring to start somewhere with God and all the time and effort you use doing it may be unattractive to you and even stop you, its called being lazy i hate to say it but i know this from experience. I have a useful tip and solution if you have this problem that may work for you if you decide to give it a shot so here it is. Start building a dream, not just a simple dream or anything thats easy to achieve, i mean think beyond! Make the accomplishments you want so great in your life they seem so out of reach and untouchable. Dream and set goals so big that you know by yourself you cant reach these achivements. In doing this you will be forced to turn to someone for support, remember no human can give you the things you desire like God can. Know its has to be a super natural power from God to make these things happen. Thats why i say dont dream small on something you can achieve by yourself because you may not need Gods support and it will defeat the whole purpose of this plan to get closer to God.
If your doing this for the right reasons then your setting your expectations high because you want to change and know him better. If your gonna do this out of selfishness to get what you want then this will not work !You will not find his blessings and support that you will need to carry forward. So know first why you want to change and what you really want before you waste your time. So you got that down now compare your dreams to the life your living now. Spend time thinking how good it will feel to reach the ultimate point in your life you never imagined, how it will better you and make life so much more adventourous. When your doing this your building an obsession a hunger for success your life style is getting old its not good enough anymore this will all naturally take place . When you want something bad enough what do you do? You go get it right you find any possible way to quench your desire , but the goals you set cant be done alone no human can make this possible for you!
What now? As i mentioned already you turn to God. Now your new world revolves around this desire, you built this hunger that has to be fed this is who you are now this is what you want it over took you to the point there is no looking back you either gotta make it or you dont see any other way. This thought process becomes a natural instinct you dont want the average lost pointless life you want to do big things and have something to live for. This is what you should be feeling like at this point . So now you have a new motivation you have opened your eyes to the bigger and better things everyday you wake up your goal is to get one step closer to your dream. Now God wont just give this to you, you have to work for it! This wont be easy if it was we wouldnt seek or acknowledge him and thats what he wants from you.
So building a big dream thats out of reach in the human eye will cause you to seek God for the guidance and accomplishment .In the time you put spending with him it will become more and more timeless, because you meet with him in prayer or study you want your desires so bad you seek to remind him and ask constantly pray for that break thru . This desire has taken over so badly you will realize there is no other way to get it unless its through God! And when you give him that attention he wants from us that at first seemed to be for your desires and goals it becomes more than that. One on one he starts showing you things teaching you meaning in life he takes away the pride and selfishness.
These things will just happen i cant explain it but it does he takes control changes your thought process your life style as long as you continue to seek he will not only give you what you want but live inside you. Your relationship will grow strong with him and the wisom he will give you will be helpful in everyday life. This doesnt mean he will do all the work and you be effortless, if you do your part and seek he will continue to guide and better your life. If you really want to change but the chrisitan life doesnt seem to appealing take my advice i gave you and you can buld your relationship with God by starting out the excact way i told by doing so you will see there is something worth living for. -
