Growing in God's Image: Relationship with God


I am so excited, as now school holidays have just started… Yay!!! Which means two weeks of relaxing, watching movies and going for bike rides if the weather is going to behave.. haha…






I also know it’s a perfect time to spend more time with God! In the busy life I have, I must admit that I can get caught up with all the action and forget to talk to God. He’s waiting there for me to talk to him!! And that’s what I want to work on more…. My relationship with God! I know he loves me so much and he’s love will NEVER end!!! 

Ways that I find what works perfectly for me to get closer to God: is starting the day off with prayer and reading my bible (It doesn’t have to be so many chapters, can be just one or a verse) as that’s one great place God will speak to you… I have a devotion that I read (not always successful) every morning, but there have been many times when God’s spoken straight through it. When I know my day is going to be busy and might get a bit stressful. I put on some great worship music like Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe, Bethel, Hillsong etc. For me, music relaxes me and when it’s worship music, I really feel His presence and peace. 

No matter how old you are or the mistakes you’ve made. God still loves you!! He has His arms wide open for you to spend time with Him. I personally love spending my days going for walks or just sitting outside and being with God. I love being outside! The best thing about being outside for me is that I can look around and be thankful for what God made.  There are so many things we can be thankful for (the sunshine, nice day, my friends and family, and freedom we have in this country). As every relationship you’ll have with a friend you need to constantly work on it and talk to them… That’s the same with God!!

God wants to have a relationship with you! You are His child!! His cherished one, He loves you!!!!! Having a relationship with Him is what we were made for. When I go a day without spending time with Him, I feel dry and dead in a way. I don't just want him, I need Him!! God is seriously what gets me through the day and he's the reason I'm living! 

I know that it can be extremely hard to find time to spend with God… But my suggestion, if you haven’t today… Do it!! Just being in his presence and spending time with Him is amazing!! Don’t just do it every Sunday!! Make it a habit, everyday!! The busyness of your life can wait another minute!

Note, I’m writing this in a way to also remind myself!! I’m not perfect and I defiantly haven’t got this relationship on a perfect roll. But I’m still learning!! And I know with God’s help and my effort, this relationship can become stronger!! I’m still growing in Gods image!!! 


God Bless,
