There is something about being “bored” that draws me closer to my Lord. I have ample time to dig into the word a little deeper. Find more sermons to to fill the silence of my apartment. You know, becoming “bored” is painful for a few days until I remember I have no excuse to not to spend more time discovering my Jesus and growing in our love. I have no reason not to talk openly with my Father and hear His wisdom. The Holy Spirit moves a little deeper into my soul. This isn’t as possible in the times that I find myself overflowing with things to do. Sure my relationship with God grows but does it thrive? The answer is yes and no. It depends on my heart. Today I find myself thankful for “boredom”.
Today didn’t happen to be a boring day but tomorrow will be and the past week has been tough. However I stand firmly in awe and praise of God. I’m thankful to have this opportunity to know Him more.
Having said that. If I’ve ever shared only the warm fuzzy gospel, I want to apologize. The truth of the matter is that you will go to hell if you don’t have a personal relationship with God. It’s so much more than “being blessed” or attending church on Sunday. It’s not always easy or warm fuzzy. However it’s worth it! A. Not to go to hell B. Because to be broken and restored is not describable. It’s having a purpose. It’s having assurance. It’s being loved and being able to give love. It’s having a leader. It’s having all the leaky parts of your heart filled. It’s becoming better. It’s something you just have to experience.
Don’t for one second believe you’ll escape hell because you were a “good person”,modest,saved baby animals,or attended church. Only the blood of Jesus Christ can wipe away your sins!
