Yes, this is Part 2. If you weren’t able to read Part 1, click this link: https://whoismaria.wordpress.com/2012/11/11/rediscover-you/
I should really admit it. I stepped away from God again. I admit that I was the one that got away (this isn’t Katy Perry’s song, okay, though I matched it with her song but this entry isn’t about it). I’m not even telling or shouting to people that I am humble. I don’t want to be viewed like that. I’m only admitting what I did to Him, and I want to share this great experience I had while I was away from Him. I mean, the experience of going back to Him again; the experience of rediscovering Him.
The first part of “Rediscover You”, I narrated how lost I felt without God. I felt how confused I was without Him. I felt how painful and hard it is not to surrender EVERYTHING to Him. I felt that way continuously until someone talked to me. A “true” friend of mine approached me boldly and asked me questions that made me go back to Him again. I believe that it was God who spoke, not his (my friend’s) words, but His words.
Listening to “Rediscover You” by Starfield the nth time around when I really felt empty, another lyrics of it stuck in my mind. These were the words:
I need to just admit that the passion’s gone, and I wanna get it back.
I made this post again to remind myself of how great is His love for you and me. No matter how far you went away from Him, you’ll never get that far from Him. You feel like you’re so distant because of the continuous disobedience you do to Him. I suddenly thought that sin is like an illusion- a very good one indeed. It directs us away from the Truth because we believe it too easily. Sin is an illusion that makes us believe that we are truly far away from Him, which is not true anymore because He made a way for us to build this relationship we once lost with Him.
I realized that faith without deeds is truly dead. You believe that you are saved yet you don’t act like one. You believe that you are changed by His grace yet you continue doing what you were doing in the past. You want Him? Then seek Him! Yes, without His help, we cannot CHANGE or do all of the things that our spirit is willing to do. We need to rely in His grace and love. We need to be dependent in the One Who created us. We need to admit that we cannot live without Him.
As I end this entry, I’d want to share Psalm 103 with you. Read it, and remember Him and His benefits. ❤ Stay blessed!
