Adore Then Ignore

sharon butt light bites for your heart

busy and distracted…

 

I get so irritated with myself. Why do I do it? Why do I act in this way?

I adore then ignore, praise and then laze.

I can get together alone with God and worship him with beautiful music and thankfulness of the heart. I can spend ages in his presence enjoying his spirit around me and basking in his love. Nothing else matters at that point – I want to be there forever.

Then the next day I am rushing round like Martha on Speed, telling myself , “I need to stop and have a quiet time!” Time passes as fast as ever and it flies to 11 p.m. and not only have I not put my heavenly Father first, I haven’t put him anywhere at all.

I don’t want to be an ‘adore then ignore’ Christian – I want to be consistent. There’s a need to practice the presence of God everywhere we go and in everything we do, but life consumes us. I am determined to overcome this apathy. Our Lord more than deserves it and I need him so much.

Does anyone else struggle with this weakness?

  1. Good morning! Great post!! I am sure every believer can relate to what you are describing. We get so caught up in our daily lives, we somehow transfer to autopilot mode. But as you stated, he is with us everywhere we go. 24/7. That right there is very comforting to me. 🙂

  2. Oh yeah, I definitely struggle with this. I think Jesus is training us to keep more focused on Him. He knows where we are at. He knows we are human and lovable. He is there for us all the way. ‘Jesus help us all ignore less and adore more – especially through out the day.’
