Lately I've been feeling like I'm on a million different journeys all at the same time.
Whether it's my marriage, parenting, my relationship with God, work or just discovering me. I'm on journeys, and let me tell you, these journeys are hard.
I could choose to ignore them but obviously that's not going to work.
Most recently one that I've really been focusing on is my relationship with God. This journey seems to be the one that's taking the most amount of effort since it's personal, takes a lot of thought, research, time and hearing what other people have to say.
Religion isn't really what I'm questioning but rather, my relationship with God. I feel like there's a missing piece to my life right now and I think having a better relationship with God would fill that spot.
I read lots of blogs where women talk about how involved they are with their church community and I want that. But, I haven't found it.
My family belongs to a church, we go sometimes, but more often than not it is out of obligation, not because we really want to be there. That's the issue. I want to find my place in this religious journey that makes me want to participate.
I want to have a meaningful relationship with God that allows me to have faith that things will turn out alright, or always feel like I have a spiritual place to go to when I need some comfort. I don't want to wait until, God forbid, there's a negative event that makes me start to pray. I want to pray because it's what I feel, not just because I need something.
My issue at the moment is where to start. I'm 28 years old, have a semi religious background meaning I know facts that the Bible says, but how, at 28, do you develop a relationship with God? If you have any advice, please share. I'll take all the help I can get!
