Ganito ba ang linyahan mo ngayon?
“Hindi na ako tulad ng dati na ‘on fire’ por da Lord.”
“Hindi ko na maramdaman si God.”
Bago ang lahat, thank you sa pagiging honest mo na nanlalamig ka na sa relationship with God. Hindi ‘to madaling aminin, ah. Kung nakakaramdam ka man ng hiya, remind ka lang namin na it’s a struggle that many face.
It could be dahil matagal ka nang nagse-serve kay God and nawalan ka na ng gana. Or maybe, kinain na ng time and attention ang work at career life.
Hindi namin alam exactly what your reason is pero safe ang feelings and thoughts mo rito, Breaker.
Pramis, ‘di kami judger.
Ackshually, Breaker, recognizing that you are in that state is a step closer to your BreakThrough kasi ibig sabihin nasa puso mo mag-change, hindi mo nga lang alam kung paano, amirite?
Prayer namin na maging comfort itong sinabi ng GotQuestions.org in their question What can I do when I don’t feel any love for God?, “Feelings come and go, and you may not always ‘feel’ love for God. Hearts tend to grow cold, and even the most on-fire Christians can struggle with maintaining their love and service to God.”
Perooooo, “A lack of feelings of love, however, does not mean the relationship has ended. God does not change; His love is constant.”
Haaayss. Ang sarap sa feeling na God’s love for you never fails kahit na you fail Him every day huhu.
Kaya ayun na nga, Breaker.
Check out these 3 BreakThrough advices kung feeling mo nanlalamig na ang relationship mo with God.
BreakThrough Advice #1: Mag-take a trip down memory lane.
Kami lang ba or nakaka-happy ng heart tignan ‘yung Facebook memories mo? Minsan pa nga nakaka-cringe ‘pag lumabas ang jejeself mo! HULI! Haha
Ganun din in your walk with God. Madalas, kailangan mong balikan ‘yung nakaraan para ma-appreciate mo ‘yung ngayon.
In your relationship with God, ha. Hindi sa ibang relationship. Ibang usapan ‘yun. Focus ka lang dito… hehe.
Pero seriously, “In rekindling your affection for God, start at the very beginning. Reflect on where and how your walk with Him first began,” sabi ng GotQuestions.org.
Naalala mo pa ba nung una mong nakilala si God?
Paano ka Niya binago as a person?
Ano ‘ng naramdaman mo nung na-discover mo kung sino Siya sa buhay mo?
How about the battles God won for you? ‘Yung mga “Hindi ko na kaya” moments mo, tinurn Niya to “Kinaya ko dahil kay God” moments.
Naaalala mo na ba?
Ang sarap kaya magmuni-muni lalo ngayong tag-ulan. Pwede mong isulat ang sagot mo sa journal mo while drinking coffee.
Humanap ka ng spot sa bahay mo na walang mangdi-disturb sa ‘yo (yes, kasama rito ‘yung pag turn off ng notifs mo) ‘Yung kayo lang talaga 2 ni God.
Prayer namin na maging way ito for you to remember your first love, remember how God turned your life around.
BreakThrough Advice #2: ‘Wag mag-disconnect.
Kung sa Zoom madalas kang ma-disconnect dahil sa net problems, pero not this time, Breaker.
Alam namin na nakaka-tempt sarilihin ang struggle pero isolation is not the solution.
Parang ganito lang ‘yan, Breaker, eh.
Isipin mo nag-outing kayo ng family tapos ikaw ang naka-assign mag-ihaw ng BBQ.
Makakapag-ihaw ka ba kung isang uling lang ang gagamitin mo? Malamang sa malamang hindi dahil kakailanganin mo ng maraming uling para magbaga.
Same in your relationship with the people who can help you stay on course with God.
“A burning coal, when removed from a pile of red-hot coals, loses its fire when it sits alone,” sabi ni Patrick Mabilog ng Christian Today in an article 4 keys to staying on fire for God.
In short, stay connected.
“When we stay within accountability, encouragement, and discipleship that come through fellowship, we remain on fire for God,” sabi ni Patrick.
Shy ka ba to tell others kasi kilala ka nila as someone bibo kid pag-usapang Jesus or wala ka talaga matatakbuhan right now?

BreakThrough Advice #3: Mag-ask ng forgiveness from Jesus.
In any relationship, mate-test talaga ang COMMITMENT mo lalo na kung matagal na kayo.
Pero in this context, in your relationship with Jesus, ah.
Papasok diyan ang different types of distraction that will grab your attention para mag-give in ka sa temptation and give up in your faith.
Pero alam mo kung ano ‘yung assurance na pwede mong panghawakan in this relationship?
“However far the lukewarm may have drifted, however often we have refused his care and strength, however cool our hearts have grown, Jesus remains near to us, ready to forgive, restore, and even embrace us,” explanation ni Marshall Segal in his article Let the Lukewarm Come to Me from Desiring God.
Si Jesus ang nagse-stay.
Si Jesus ang faithful.
Si Jesus ang committed and ikaw na nanlalamig sa relationship, pusong humble iz da key, Breaker. I-admit mo na nagkamali ka, naging unfaithful ka. Humingi ka ng forgiveness sa Kanya and He will forgive you (Revelation 3:19).
Alam mo, may malalim na hugot ‘yan bakit dumating ka sa point na naging distant ka from Jesus, eh.
Ang gandang reminder ‘to from Nightbirde, “Jesus is worth whatever it is you’re scared of losing.”
Ano ang need mo i-let go para maka-BreakThrough ka in your relationship with Jesus?
Disappointment from the past?
What is it? I-pinpoint mo.
Jesus is standing at the door of your heart knocking. Ask mo Siya to help you heal and restore your heart that is broken dahil sa hirap at sakit na pinagdaanan mo sa buhay.
He wants to ignite ‘yung fire na nawala, but you have to let Him work sa puso mo.
