5 Ways to Fall Deeper in Love with God!

Merry Christmas! Guess who's back for 9.493 seconds! I miss blogging so much it hurts. I can't even count how many times I've said "I miss blogging" just this semester. But yesss I'm back from uni. And by the grace of God I'm done with my first semester! Halleluuuu. 7 more semesters to go. Jesus take the wheel. And the entire vehicle. I don't remember whether I mentioned what I'm studying at uni but oh well. I'm a Communication Design major and I might end up focusing on graphic design in 2nd year. We get to choose between animation, graphic design and marketing/pr/advertising. ANYWAY. Enough about me. Let's get to the real reason of this blog post.

One late evening/early morning as I was studying for exams with church friends, we were talking and I asked the question, "How do I practically love God?" It's a question that I've thought about a lot and I didn't really understand how to love God. So anyways we got to discussing and it was so interesting! So here are 5 super duper simple ways to fall deeper in love with God.

1. Go on a date with Him.

You guys, how fun would it be to go on a date with your Lord and Saviour? Can you imagine grabbing your favorite drink ( a lemonade, or iced Arnold Palmer, or a Malt for me) and a pastry or salad or ANYTHING YOU WANT with God? Then you'd just open up your Bible or journal and put your headphones in and let Hillsong Worship or Young & Free do their thing? You guys. Then you could let God know about everything that's going on in your life, that lecturer who is really tough, your ministry that is or isn't working, that sin that you're struggling with, that family member who needs Jesus so bad. Man. I need that right now. And He'll DEFINITELY let you know how to  deal with everything because He loves you and loves spending time with His princess.

2. Write letters to Him.

You could be on a bus or waiting for a lecture to start and you may or may not have internet connection. You could write a letter to your Heavenly Father and thank Him for opening your eyes and causing your heart to continue beating even as you were asleep. And while you're at it thank Him for the breakfast you got to have (some of us don't have breakfast before those 6am or 8am lectures) Just tell Him stuff. Ask Him questions.

3. Bless Him with your substance.

You could give a special offering to Him just because. He loves that. Wouldn't you love it if someone gave you money and said "Please get yourself an extra large pepperoni pizza because I love you and I know you've been craving pizza." Or is that just me? Oh awkward. But yes. Do it.

4. Have a sleepover with Him.

Stooooooop. Imagine this. Cozy blankets, fluffy socks, hot chocolate or whatever drink you want, PIZZA (always a necessity), your Bible, journal, watercolor paints and Gracious Tempest by Hillsong playing in the background. You guys dont understand how much I need some one on one time with my Saviour. Having a sleepover with Jehovah sounds perfect right now.

5. Go on a walk with Him.

You guys. One time I was walking to do my laundry and I was just talking to God. I was like "God I wish I could hold Your hand,  that would be sooo nice". And then I was also like " God, may Your favor and grace locate me today." When I got the laundry I got a shweet discount on my stuff. I was all *praise hands* *crying emoji* *fist-pumping*. Is it weird talking to God out loud? Cuz it sounds like you're talking to yourself and people might give you all the side-eyes. LH whuever.

So those are some ways to fall deeper with God today! I'm so excited to make all of these a habit. And I hope you do to.

You are loved with an everlasting love. God is love. And He wants to have a relationship with you. No one comes to the Father unless through His Son, Jesus Christ. He's calling you today. Will you answer?

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son. Colossians 1:13
