Like a Weight Has Been Lifted

Lately, I've felt distant from God. I want to do my quiet times and devotions, but I don't. I don't make time for God.

I've been trying to do more devotions on here, because for a while I just did random posts because that was what was in me.

That's what I thought girls liked to read.

But I realized that's not what girls need. That's not what I need. But honestly, even though what I said in the devos were true, they weren't from my heart. I want to change that.

Last night, I opened my heart to God. I told him I'm sorry for choosing other things over Him and trying to find worth in other people and things instead of in Him. I realize that here on the blog I've been pretending to be "tight" with God, when really there is so much more that I could know about Him. I don't really know Him that well, but I want to.

I feel kind of like a weight has been lifted. I hear people say that a lot, but it's true for me now.

Now I want to make God a priority instead of accessory. I want to know Him so well I feel as though I'm chatting with an old friend when I talk to Him. I want to know Him so well that I talk to Him all the time and don't neglect my quiet times with Him.

As I told Him last night, I want to be a God girl. And I want to be honest. This is me, here it is, this is who God made me to be.

I'm Talia.

I love my name. I love my eyes. I don't sing very well in the morning, but I love to sing. I wish I sang better. The campfire at camp this year was one of the best moments of my life. I'm not that into vintage like a lot of bloggers are. I am a tuna sandwich fanatic. I love the names Trinity, Esther, and Jasmyn. I'm not really hyper and happy all the time, like I am around some of my friends. I love the songs "Amazing Grace" and "You Never Let Go." I love to read, and I read my books over and over if I really like them. If I have nothing to read, I just reread one of the books. I'm kind of bored of the movie Tangled, even though I love it, cause I've seen it so much. I love my youth group and am truly blessed to be able to go to it. I have never owned a cell phone that actually calls people. I'm love "all things techno" and working with HTML. I love photography and writing. I love it when my blog looks "just right." I'm a big procrastinator. I am a person who thinks of little things to do that will make people happy, like cleaning up for my grandma when I babysat cousins at her house. I like kids, but a lot of them usually don't like me very much, except a select few. I believe that if you dream it, you can do it. I like good quotes. I like good movies. I love Disney movies (except The Princess and the Frog...not a fan), and I love just the originality of them - the whole package of the video and music. When I go into one of those 4D theatres, I get nervous because I don't know when I'm gonna get sprayed in the face or something. When I was little, I loved "Soarin' Over California" at Disneyland. I still liked it when I was older, but not as much 'cause I was tall enough to see the top of the screen. I really don't like it when people say something mean and then they say "just kidding," cause usually there is a bit of truth behind each joke.

There is so much more to me, but for now I'll leave you with this.

But one thing you should know about me...

I'm a God girl.

Oh wow, have inspired me greatly. So many times I compare myself with other people and try to be like them when I should just be ME.
Thanks for the post!

I have felt that way before. Christianity is like a rolar costar. It is not fun when you take that dip farther away from our hevenly Father. But God is good and his love endures forever.
