I want to be closer than ever with God

Member
How do I start? Ive been a Christian my whole life (20 years). I've been struggling with getting Close to him. Theres too may distractions around me, from friends to video games etc. I am really willing to have a relationship with him! Theres been times that I do get close and start living my life right, but than of course I just slip away as usual. Im getting tired of that happening to me!

If anyone has felt the same way and has broken through to get to really know God can you tell me how to do it!

My first guess is to start with the word!:shade:
But what else?
Prayer?
Talk to my dad about it? ( my dad really knows that Bible well, and he lives his life according to the word.)
I just wanna be like my dad and live right!!
Not only for myself, but for the Lord Jesus Christ!

Thank you for your response

Are you involved in a church? How about going to a Christian Bookstore and check out the Bible study books they have. Usually they cover the Books of the Bible or topics, like how to grow, or topics that help your walk or how to witness. The tops are endless, and I know there is something to peak your interest. Give it a try and get involved with your church.

I would really enjoy getting involved with the church, but there's one problem. I'm getting deployed real soon, so I guess I'm going to have to go to a book store and find a study book! But I thank you for your reply, this forum had 35 views and your the only one who answered I appreciate it!

That is probably the most powerful statement Ive ever seen on the forum.It encourages me to know there are people like your dad and that there are people who can see how awesome knowing the Lord can make someone.

Don't take the lack of response as non-interest.
Your question is not easy or everyone would be doing it.
I read your post earlier and I didn't have a good answer because what makes me closer to God is horrible disasters that cause me to pray and study day and night.If I don't have any horrible disaster I pray about others disasters.
I guess what I mean is that when we see God move in a situation we feel very connected to him through his work in the earth.
Of course we should always thank him for keeping his word in our hearts and minds.
