It’s not easy to talk about something so personal.
I remember the first time I heard about being spiritual, I immediately became interested; it seemed like something from another planet, unreachable for me at the time. Since then, the first thing I did was to start reading the Bible.
I thought that the more I read the Bible, the more spiritual I would become. When I reached my teens I had already read the entire Bible. My Bible was all highlighted with passages that spoke to me, my Bible was so colourful, LOL. At the time, I did not turn spiritual for doing that.
I also sought to pray whenever I remembered to do so. I was very afraid of going to hell so I was always asking God to forgive my sins, even though deep down I was not aware of what they actually were.
Friends, none of this is being spiritual. I became spiritual much later on…
All of this is still true today; I can’t stop practicing each item on this list for one day. If I do, my spiritual life is affected directly and I become weak. This has happened a few times and, as a consequence, I had serious problems. This is why I invest in my spiritual life every day and yet it is not easy — imagine those who don’t invest at all?!
