When Praises Cease and Seasons Change

My sisters and I dedicating our time for the cause at Relay for Life!

"Whatever you are doing, whether you speak or act, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:17

As most of you know, religion is pretty new to me. Back in December, I accepted Christ and became an active follower of God that found joy in walking with Him daily. As of recently, I'm ashamed to say, I've lost that.

I don't know if it was joining a sorority and being scared of being judged, the stressful schedule that came along with changing my major, or the health issues that arose, that caused my Faith to slowly dwindle down to only praying during desperate times.

Recent events, however, have made me realize how unfulfilled my life is everyday without acknowledging God and appreciating the life He has given me. Relay for Life was a gentle reminder about how truly lucky I am to be here and has brought me to appreciate the small things on a daily basis.

The loving relationship I've recently developed with my parents gave me more to live for. The encouraging friends that I have found in my sorority have given me a reason to believe that not everybody is mean. The rut that I was in with Bryson is now over. Why am I not happy?

The answer: I have lost Christ.

"I will not take my love away, when praises cease and seasons change. The whole world turns the other way but I will not take my love away."

God, I know that you can give me what I need to live a fulfilling and morally righteous lifestyle. I promise myself to you once again (sorry for being led astray).
