I know my heart is not right with God in some areas. I use my time to ask God to come into me and help strengthen those areas of my life.
It has never been a bold “Follow the world” sort of draw for me. It has always deceived me by taking tiny slips toward sin. Then I look around and realize how far I have gone in the wrong direction. Fortunately, the Lord is faithful.
When I have been lacking in reading the bible and prayer, this is when the deepest sins of my heart begin to bubble up and put separation between me and God.
