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 comfort – a 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!!
