I have a friend who is struggling to “get back on track” with her spiritual life. She is a Jesus follower and no doubt loves Him, but at present just feeling a little distant and out of her routines with Him. When we haven’t seen a close friend for a while, the best way to reconnect in our hearts with that person is to call them or read something they’ve written like an old letter or email as a reminder of their love for us. It’s the same in our relationship with God. Call Him or pray, and read His word as a reminder of His love. Here’s my exact response or advice if you will to my friend. I don’t think she will care that I’m sharing. You may find yourself in her situation at some point and this may help you as well. It’s simple and easy.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you:) Don’t grow weary in doing good. Start in the Psalms and just read:) That’s always a good place to “get back on track.” Just close your eyes and say the word “Jesus.” Say it over and over if you have to. That always has a calming, drawing nearer effect for me. His name just brings peace and is a gentle reminder immediately of His presence:) And I also like to pray out loud. I don’t know if you would have a chance for that, but I always feel renewed and refreshed when I do that. Sometimes I do it in front of my kids if they happen to be with me. All out honesty with God about your feelings and such is a freeing release. Love you and hope this helps. YOU WILL get “back on track.” He’s still there with you. He hasn’t left you ( Josh 1:9). His hand is on you. He’s not finished with you. He who began a good work in you is faithful to complete it. “
