How To Be Closer To God : A List
It can be a challenge to feel close to God sometimes. We all go through seasons. Ups and downs. Highs and lows. I know those are exactly the same thing but I don't want to come up with any other examples. If you happen to be in a down, or even an up, I hope you find this short list encouraging.
1. You should probably stop reading this.
I mean that’s probably the best step of all. Stop reading this and just go do it already. Why didn’t I put this last? Ok, read the rest of this and then just don’t read anything else after that…Cool.
2. Live Off the Grid
Buy a cabin in the mountains, have a Bible. Boom. Or just spend the hour you would be scrolling through Instagram and pray, read your Bible, all the Christian-y stuff.*
*-I’m a hypocrite
3. Grab Your Dusty Old Bible
I guess this should really be step number one. If you’re not in the Word of God, you’re not going to hear from God. *
*-Again…hypocrite. This is really turning out to just be a list for myself.
4. Sit Down and Shut up
This step is essentially a culmination of the last three steps. Life is busy. There’s always going to be an excuse to not read your Bible, to sleep in on a Sunday morning…I miss those days sometimes…to pray more than when you're sitting in traffic. Sometimes all it takes is to just sit down, shut up, and listen.
5. Bonus Point- Have coffee with you at all times
Coffee is an essential part of making steps one through four possible. I'm really trying to make "Communion Coffee" a thing, but for now I'll have to stick with grape juice.
