I get a lot of emails from men and women who are in a lot of pain due to their failing marriages (or other reasons) and they wonder what to do. I’m not a marriage counselor, or bible teacher or bible scholar but I do know what the Word says and that is to “seek His face first” and this is the advice I give to everyone. The bible tells us that if we draw nearer to Him, He will draw nearer to us. Think about that…. that is a promise from God but something is required of us. We MUST draw nearer to Him FIRST. So what does that look like?
Prayer and bible reading. It’s that simple. But some of us, including me sometimes, have a problem with discipline. We have trouble getting motivated or we get caught up in our lives and we forget to spend time with Him. Sometimes we just don’t feel like it. And this is the reason for this post….
Let’s seek Him TOGETHER! I’m talking about a real, hands-on approach. I’m talking about me and you interactive via Skype or telephone that involves us praying together and reading from the bible each day. It’s not about an “accountability partner,” but rather a good way to make sure we are getting fed daily and doing it together!
I don’t know what the response will be like, if any, but if we get too many, we may have to make changes in the future but for now, we can do this via telephone or Skype.
If you are serious about drawing closer to God, like me, then join me and we’ll seek Him together. I will call you each day and we’ll pray and read a little bit from the bible and we’ll talk briefly about any issues you have but again, this will not be our focus. Our focus will be on our Heavenly Father and our relationship with Him.
The first step is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me a little about yourself and what your relationship with God is like. Tell me anything you’d like really. I just need to make sure you’re serious before we proceed further.
