I have drifted away from God.

Hey everyone.
I wanna ask everyone here, whether is there a period of time that you have personally neglected God and drifted away from Him?
What did you do to get back together with God?
Because that is what IMO I'm going through right now.
I don't really feel close with God these days, maybe because of all the stress of life?
Close in the sense that I know He is there, but I'm unable to reach him.
It's quite difficult to say what I'm trying to say.. (Pardon me for my limited vocabuary)
I really need to get my act together. :/

To TS:
All of us have to go through this period of life.I think maybe cos u are too stressed up with life,u feel the absense of God in ur life..Always remember--Your talent,ability,gifts comes from God.Sometimes in life,one might feel that he/she can conquer everything without God for he seemed so distant away.Church will help in your emotional needs,but i think u got to go through this period to fully understand everything.My advice is for u to go back to ur church,if u have drifted away.And take some time everyday to maintain a strong relationship with God.God is always with u,but its ur choice to be with him.Read the bible ,talk to God thats my advice for u.Trials comes and go.It is a learning process,rejoice whenever God placed u in a situation where u find no way out.Trust in him and u will find ur way out.

Re: I have drifted away from God.

tks for the sharing.

some things you can do to help yourself get back to Him:
1. Join a cell-group.
2. Ask some close Christian friends to encourage you and keep you accountable in your quiet times and church attendance.
3. Take baby steps by devoting 5min everyday to prayer and reading the Bible. Then increase it every 2-3 wks.
4. Join a ministry that you feel interested in or called into. Usually tied to your gifts and talents.

Hope this helps and looking forward to hearing an update in a few wks

Re: I have drifted away from God.

Definitely agree with joining up in a CG... Most life transformations start there... Usually the moments that turn it all around are there too..

Friends who are secure and grounded in love are helpful too... Spirits of depression are contagious, stay away from those.. hang out around people who know they are loved, they are the ones who can help you the most cos they are experiencing it first hand.

I believe serving can wait until you are well rested. cos if you are already drawing on zero, then giving more without receiving from God will make the deficit worse... Sit at His feet, listen to sermons that reveal Jesus and His love for you. Once you are well fed, you will automatically want to serve, trust me on this =)

really look forward to hearing a testimony from your test, a message from your mess =D

Re: I have drifted away from God.

usually i would pray more and try to fast as well...
having a cellgroup would be a good thing because members can encourage one another and grow together spiritually. if you are currently in a cell group now, maybe you can talk to your cell group leader about how to improve your relationship with God. If you do not have a cell group, I'm sure you have Christian friends around you who will be there for you and encourage you when you talk to them about this (:
you can also take part in bible study classes to strengthen your knowledge in the word of God.

Re: I have drifted away from God.

I know what it is like to be far from God. I had turned away from God at one period in my life. It was difficult to come out of that state. One way in which you can draw close to God in this period of stress is to remember all the good things He had done for you in the past, and to reflect on your past relationships with Him.

Re: I have drifted away from God.

I drifted away from God many times. Became agnostic several times even. But somehow, God always has His ways to call me back.

Like the others, I also recommend you spend more time with other Christians. God often speaks to us through our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Also, keep praying. Especially if you are going through a low period. Even if you feel that God isn't listening, continue to pray. Best is if you can tell someone close to you what you're facing, and pray together.

God continues to draw me back no matter how far I drift away from Him. It's the same case with my Christian friends. We all have our dry periods, but those dry periods always pass. The trick is to continue and not give up.

Recently, I had a lot of health problems strike me, right in the middle of my BMT. Really sucked, and I got really angry with God (as in angry like I've never been angry before) that I refused to even talk about God. But God spoke to me through my mother, and things are now much better.

The exam period I stopped praying and then I just slowy drifted away. That tiem even went to church on christmas night and said to pray everyday as new christmas resolution, but didnt even do that. But I know he still watches over me ^^

Thank You lord

Re: I have drifted away from God.

I think it's always the good times when I drift away but I will return to him somehow whenever things are going haywire. It's like a lesson to tell me not to get too full of myself.

It's really common.

Re: I have drifted away from God.

Kind of different for me, it's in the hard times that I drift away. Like my grandfather's dementia which makes him...perverted. I drifted away because I couldn't believe that a loving God would be so cruel as to let that happen. But ah well, I trust that He knows best. Who are we to know His will?

It's the same for me in some ways too. I will try to solve problems by my own. It's only after I have completely exhausted all my options, that's when I start to call on Him. So far, not everything turns out as expected. SOmetimes, I end up disappointed.
