Staying Interested In God

Just like this blog, I have a hard time staying interested in God.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I lack an interest all-together. But with chronic illnesses, one such as a chronic fatigue, I’m often too tired to delve into the world of the Bible, let alone any other priorities.

I find myself saying things like “I’ll do it tomorrow” and “There’s always another time.” But the truth is, the time is now. It’s always been now.

I guess part of the problem is the faith issue i mentioned in my previous blog post: ‘Struggling With Faith’ . I know that God is there  but I can’t always feel him. And that can cause some doubt.


So how can I maintain a daily interest?


I have found that prayer is a very good way to feel connected. Though at times it does feel like it takes more effort than I would like it to, it is a great comforta direct way to communicate with God.

Reading the Bible.

Making a point to read even just a chapter a day in the Bible can help bring an overall understanding, even if it’s just a little bit.


Now this may be a bit unconventional, but knowing that I am forgiven for my sins – including my shortage of curiosity – is extremely helpful, which in a way is a form of self-forgiveness.


So far, this is what I’ve got! Comment your techniques of staying faithful and maintaining interest, especially when you’re not feeling it!!

  1. You start with the book you like first, I like proverbs for example, and everyday add another book or couple verses to it .. If you do this for a few weeks this will become your new habit. Consistency is the key here.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts!! I started with Luke, definitely one of my favorites!! The Bible I have directs me from one verse to another in a different section so I can put the whole story together!


      1. That’s wonderful, once you start with discipline, the rest becomes easy. Deff part of my journey. I started with the gospels, because it shows me a clear pic of who Jesus was, and how we should examplify him as his disciples.

        I will be following ur journey 🙂

      2. That’s a wonderful reason to start with the Gospels. It’s definitely a wonderful way to build your trust!! Thanks for following!


  2. Great post. We all have times when we’re not feeling it.

    What helps me, is that I try to stay consistent & have a time for God every day. But if I miss, I just get back up the next day & keep trying. Also sometimes it’s about changing the routine. For example, if I’m journaling on my computer, maybe after a few weeks, I use actual pen & paper. Or maybe changing the spot I’m reading my Bible in. Minor changes can help a lot.

  3. I agree with your idea of reading the Bible daily, even if it is just one chapter. I for one do use this technique. It helps me feel good inside and also helps me to feel closer to God. It’s a great and encouraging way to start our day.

    1. Thanks for leaving a response! I noticed how you mentioned “start our day”, I wonder if reading at certain times of the day can make a difference in the journey. For instance, I usually end my day with a chapter, and I feel great before I go to bed. But I wonder if reading my chapter in the morning could make my whole day great instead!

  4. Great tips, especially daily Bible reading, even if it’s for 10 minutes. It really does make a difference! Another tip could be listening to worship songs and even making certain phrases from them mantras that you think of throughout the day. 🙂

    1. Oh, absolutely! Love and faith is more often an action and a choice more-so than an emotion. By remembering that, we can remember our vows of loyalty!!
