When your are not walking with the Lord it tends to be a walk with a lot more hard times, days may seem filled with constant bad news or your not capable to get over little humps. In your heart you know you are missing something.
Do not forget even in the times when we are walking with the Lord we will have troubling times but the difference is you will be doing it with the Lord. When with the Lord problems are things you want to solve, bad times don't feel like bad time. They are things that you get to laugh at knowing you will get through whatever it is.
When can choose to walk away from the Lord God or be led astray but also remember. Our Lord is still with us either blazing a new trail or in the back letting you lead the way through life. Have a desire to be walking with the Lord.
2 Peter 3:17-18
17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
