I feel very ashamed lately. I was once radically on fire for The Lord. And now I am so distant. My heart longs for him, but I don’t know how to get back to where I was. Any suggestions?
Hey my friend, I’m really sorry you’re going through this. Please allow me the grace to point you to some previous posts.
You don’t have to read any of these: but I hope you can see that
1) You’re totally not alone in this, and
2) We all have seasons of doubt, confusion, and frustration in our spiritual journey.
None of this makes you a bad person or that you’re somehow “off” with God. It could just be growing pains or the natural rhythm of your life or just a particularly vulnerable week that perpetuated some condemning thoughts about yourself.
