1 - READ THE WORD
What alienates us from God
“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”
2 - Reflect
I was lying constantly, that had already become a habit for me. I hid or twisted the smallest things as long as they did not discover me. I did not want to show anything of myself, of my true self. I could not put that bad habit aside and the falsities time took me to more confusing places every time. I was failing others but we'd failing myself even more, I could not keep any commitment and my word was completely worthless. I had to go to appointments that I did not keep, my family members did not wait for me when I said that I was going to meet them because I never did.
I understood that this not only kept me away from God but also separated me from my family and from those I loved even more. Relief will come when we get in touch with Our Father in an open and sincere way. When we allow ourselves to speak to Him about what is happening to us, whatever is opening a gap between what we want to do and what we are really doing. Starting to adopt practices that are beneficial will not be easy after we fall into sin, but we can achieve it with the help of our Lord. Avoiding these bad behaviors and healing on the inside will bring us closer to Our Father and will give us the peace we need to fix what we have broken.
