Absolutely! I pray, I praise, I study my bible, or at least I will usually spend a minute each day focusing on a particular scripture, but sometimes I completely get side tracked in the middle. I usually do this at the start of everyday, but not always. My family and I have Godly discussions pretty often, even just about what the bible says about something, things we might have trouble with in life, etc. I used to attend church -- all my life up until I got into my late teen years & then my partner & I went back to my church for a long time, but just quit. I can't explain it, but I wasn't getting anywhere. They changed preachers & then there was an older man who kept taking the stage on Wednesday nights & spent the time preaching about us teens wearing holey jeans and yadda yadda. That was my last time. I can watch Joyce Meyer at home and learn a heck of a lot more than I can in a church bench listening to an old man complain about what clothing my age group wears. My jeans did not have holes in them that particular night & he wasn't talking about some gaping, very exposing holes in jeans -- he was complaining about jeans with those "stylish" tears on the knee. Who cares?! You know? I'm here to learn about God and we're talkin' jeans? I felt badly also because I do have jeans with some tearing & well, so the heck what?!
Not only that, but I was getting restless and wasn't learning anything. I know it's my problem with paying attention, but I just couldn't get up the desire to go back. I mean, I want to learn about how to live life in my days and do it the best I can, with a good, God-pleasing attitude, etc. I want to learn about what the bible has to say about everything, not just the minor things because some preachers are too scared to bring up other things. I want to learn it all. So that is why I became a huge Joyce Meyer & Creflo Dollar fan. They teach me these things. They're preaching has taught me more in just 3 years than I've learned in my entire life of attending church. Nothing necessarily against the church, but more about how I learn & my personal needs when it comes to learning and all.
I get a lot from my spirituality & it really does make myself and my life totally better, different than what it'd have been without God in my life, so I do try and keep up with my spiritual "activities." It has been a while since I listened to an entire sermon, but that's mostly because of being busy and not having TV in the bedroom anymore. I just listen to the TV in our living room when a good preacher is on. Sometimes it catches my attention even while I'm in another room. Oh, can't forget Kenneth Copeland & Joel Olsteen! Those two have also been big preachers in my life. Listened to them both every since I can remember, because my grandmother always did. That's what got me into it later when I got older. I always loved when I'd be in bed at her house, half asleep and could hear Joel Olsteen or Kenneth Copeland preaching. I'd stay in bed & listen while drifting in and out of sleep. Their words were always so strangely comforting to me. So it hung with me & I still get excited listening. I just really love Joel Olsteen's voice and his way with people, from what I see on TV and all. It's not common to hear such kind words.
