Stay in the Word. The moment you start letting go of that, you’re on the road to compromise. Stay grounded, remain pure, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.
It’s not just that you do the things that God forbids. The saddest part about it is that you chose those things over God.
Pursuing God is about realizing more and more that He has been pursuing you all along, and slowly waking to this reality. It’s knowing that every ounce of effort you’ve made towards Him has been His wooing grace, beckoning you ever closer.
I ran away from God, refused His calling and tried to give up on Him a million times but I always find myself being dragged towards Him a million and one times more.
