I am not always thinking of Him; is it wrong?

Reread the heading, thinking about God, right? So I had a bizarre thought yesterday, weird I must confess, and then the next thing crossing my mind was; I must tell someone about it; maybe I would meet someone who shares the same view as mine.P.S. Kindly share your opinion at the end of the post, I want to hear you speak

Take a deep breath, I mean it; pause on this article and take a deep breath. Have you done that? Now, close your eyes; just for a few seconds and imagine yourself before the Saviour of the world. Did you see his robe shining bright? The warmth in the room you can’t express, the love that surges through you at the mention of that name; do you feel that? I did, and I smiled

But then, a guilty thought comes in; and I find myself asking How often do I think of the Saviour? Like how often do I put Him at heart?

HELP!!! I want to follow my heart but I don’t know how

Not very often

Rarely

Maybe when necessary

I can’t remember

Often

Now, I paused to wonder; does it means the saviour must preside my every thought every moment? Like when I am in the bathroom taking a shower from having a stressful day? Or when I am trying to joggle up reading my academic notes? Or when I am busy with a client or trying to put things in order online? Okay, must I think of him when I am about to make an online transaction for a digital course? Or maybe when I am going through emotional distress due to rejection? How often is it too much? How often little?

I didn’t have answer

I mean, I never know whether this level of thinking was either too little or much

I didn’t know if He is happy because I think of him less or not

I can’t say whether He just wants me to think of him day after day or moments after moments.

I didn’t know and I felt guilty

I never thought of him when I made that decision,

Here is how to put your faith in God in all situations

I never thought of him when I sought that advice from a friend

I never thought of him when I joined that class

Was I to always think of him?

Conflicted? Confused?

Here is the ultimate question with a search for an answer; When should I think of Him?

The answer is ALWAYS, and in all THINGS

Now always doesn’t mean every minute or seconds or hour; it means I put Him first in all I do. I go to him for the little and biggest things, and I seek his guidance and peace in every step.

Always means, I always put those things that call for his anger or displeasure; I live my life to glorify him daily

Always means, I don’t behave unruly because others around me; it means I am ready to run to him in every situation

As a mother losing her child, I look on him

As a student, going for an exam; I think of Him

I seek for his glory even when others scorn me

I think of him even when my friend calls me to sin

I might not think of him when I am stressed up each day, but I am on guard when the enemy tries to steal away my joy.

I call him Father not because I wanted something like gifts

I call him Father because I desire a relationship

Every step of the way, little things such as taking a deep breath in and out; I always remember I should always stay grateful to him

It is not about how often I think of him and I know I don’t live for his glory

It is always about what I desire to do while seeking his glory, thinking of him.

He is my father, and I am to honor him with my life

I am not thinking of him every moment,

Staying Productive during lock down: A Christian Guide

Well, that’s okay as long as in everything I seek his glory

If I don’t trade away my salvation when with friends, I am thinking of Him

I think of him more often in my subconscious mind

He sees my innermost thought,

And he knows I love to live for his glory

I think that’s how much I think of the Saviour

I live for his glory, and that’s more than enough.

    Unlike you, I don’t feel guilty. Rather, I get all frozen up and cold towards him. Prayer becomes an extreme sport that I struggle to do, but I’ve to not beat up myself, crawl back to him like a wandering toddler and spread my arms for a hug.

    Guess what? His embrace sets the cold on fire, and we cool…again.

      I once felt that way with prayer; it was like a sport I struggled with; but I decided to read books, discipline myself to take it one step at a time. If I could wait 5 minutes before God in all sincerity, I could go 10 minutes another time. But, in all God, stills reminds me of his love always…

    For me, I’m always conscious of Christ. Christ has dominated my thinking. I feel it’s because of my prayer from Psalm 80:18 ‘Quicken us to call upon your name, and we will not depart from thee’. It’s solely all thanks to the Holy Spirit for his help because no man can help himself.

    However, my flaw is that most time, I know I have to do something. I know when the spirit beckons on my attention but procrastination and laziness would not allow one please God. I’m learning to say yes everytime.

    Thank you very much!

      I believe we all are in the valley of procrastination and laziness;- I can’t remember how often I pray to God to deliver me from laziness, but it took grace for me to learn discipline. I developed a strategy to combat laziness. It has helped me greatly, such that when something is laid in my heart by the spirit of God, I dicipline myself to act.
