193/365: When God Seems So Far Away

And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.  ~ Matthew 12: 31-32

If you have knelt your heart at the foot of Christ and welcomed God's spirit, then you need not worry whether or not you have blasphemed against the Spirit of God.  You have not.

If you are holding out and waiting to receive God's spirit because you are skeptical.... or maybe you were "burned" by a "bully Christian" who yelled at you for being a sinner ... don't worry. 

If you shake your fist at God because you don't understand why His plan feels like it's working against you... don't worry. You are okay because you are willing to stay with God. 

If you are having a hard time grasping God, it doesn't mean you have rejected Him. 

Your top duty is to continue bringing God's spirit into the room. Be yourself.  Show up! Bring God! Never stop! Your life is your witness.

Next Step: Do you carry any guilt or shame for a mistake you've made or a sin you can't shake? God loves you, still. Ask Him to forgive, then ask for a helper.
