Wake Up.

These last two weeks have been long.

Between my mad procrastination skills digging me into a deep hole and the fact that time with God has not been at the top of my priority list, I have been living class to class in a haze.

I woke up from my haze this morning.


Merriam-Webster.com defines complacency as, “self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies.” Complacency is a state that occurs from spending all of your time seeking satisfaction in yourself, your plans, and your circumstances. Therefore, because you are not actively seeking God, you are unaware of the dangerous situation in which the devil is slowly placing you.

The devil uses busyness as one of his tools to make us complacent in our faith – to make us passive in our faith – to make us slowly set aside our faith.

Then, complacency leads to indifference.

It is SO EASY to fall into the trap of indifference. Indifference is that weird in-between where you know what you should be doing, but you lack the drive to do it. You are too busy. You are too tired. You are too…(fill in the blank). You become unconcerned. Then, you slowly become indifferent.

Our faith is the one thing in this world with which we cannot afford to be indifferent, complacent, or passive. Faith is not something we can just push down the line to figure out when we are older because we are not promised tomorrow much less, years to figure it out.

Wake up, my friend, please wake up.

“What are you going to do to fight your natural drift towards indifference?” – Samer  Massad

Fight for your faith. Seek God, seek God, and seek God again. He will lift you out of the trap of indifference that you have fallen into.

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” -Jeremiah 29:13

{Group prayer time!}

Please pray that every person who reads this will continuously look to God to rescue them from complacency and indifference. Pray that God gives us the strength to fight for faith every single day.

XOXO,

Cat


Hey guys! Many of you know that music is my soul food. If you would like for me to share my playlists, let me know in the comments! NF is an artist I found recently with lyrically some of the best songs I have heard in a long time. His rapping is straight up poetry. Check out “Wake Up”:

  1. Wonderful post, Catherine! Thanks for sharing your heart so openly. I can completely relate to this. It’s so good to be called out on it – we absolutely cannot become indifferent in our relationship with God. He must become greater! <3
