Just a question... What makes you think your growing distant from God? I really doubt that... I think your growing closer to God. If you weren't you would not have posted this message. I'm not crazy...lol. I think when Christians see themselves slipping away they get right back in the word and in prayer. They grow and learn life lessons from God Almighty. Your growing. It's up to you whether or not you will heed the tug in your spirit. If not then you will grow distant from God. God always leaves it up to you to choose. I hope that makes sense... It sure did in my head. :)

Yo kid sometimes without the bible & all that religious stuff, you just need to have a 1 on 1 with God, just cry out man, be honest & open spill your guts to Him. Be straight up though don't hide under religious ways of approaching God, Talk to Him. Man I even vent to God, if I'm angry at Him I tell Him, and He always conforts me. Yo just spill it to Him man & He'll show up & answer you.

my prayer is for you is dust youself down. Do not look down soldier. Get up no body gets left behind. Where is the vision and the dreams that you have written down. If God has said them to you then he has meant them to come to pass in your life and you must not let anything or anyone rob you of that. You are loved mightily by God and the reat of the fam.

the holy spirit is drawing you all the time, listen to that still small voice. use the faith you have been given to stand up flex those muscles and walk. Your dream are still ahead of you and you have much to do. It is not that first loved Him but He continues to love YOU..

Peace

praying elekt, do you have a brother or two that you can go to and confide in within your church? if not, why don't you call someone you are close with on the boards and see if you can't get some accountability for the spiritual "disciplines" that you may be struggling with.

like i said solider we have got your back. i can't comment on what i have not been through, but i have been through it and you will too. You ask in faith for the lord to give you strength and believe that you receive that strength.

Now here comes the practice.

1. write down you dreams on a piece of paper and get a bible scripture that acts as a foundation to it.
2. thatnk God for the strength that he has given you
3 meditate on one line of scripture or even one word and grow from there.
Give yourself a praise report

peace

Sometimes God allows us to feel distant from him to create more of a hunger for him.

yo elekt i know exactly how you feel about the whole away at school thing and staying strong in the faith, while striving to disciple as well. Having to balance school and have enough time with God. I still go through it too. What i learned and what other brothers and sisters have told me; is to keep being consistent, keep going strong no matter what is around you and on the outside..just keep holding strong and have daily convos with God and in the word.
I feel like everything i do too im constantly evaluating my walk with God and how I can dillegently seek more of Him on a daily basis.
So the fact that your acknowledging all this is good, and God is definitely still dwelling in you, He just wants the all that you can give

praying for you and all other students who may be going through a similar situation
