I prefer to live in constant distraction. I do whatever I can to occupy my mind. I make my life busy. I keep my life noisy. I try to avoid the moments when everything is still. I chase after awards and accolades hoping they’ll ignite a passion in me. I see other people living, but I feel like I’m just existing. Sound familiar?
If you’re not sure how to say yes to God and fill this void, you can pray a prayer like this:
God I need you. Please forgive me for the things I’ve done. Forgive me for turning my back on you and going my own way. Take control of my life and make me more like you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Thank you for your love. Amen.
If you want, you can talk these things through with a mentor before you make this leap. You won’t regret it.
