My Pattern: Always when my life is + it is when I am praying, and when is - I am not

I realized this pattern... when I am praying, as constantly, night and night... my life is better overall. It's like I am shielded of my fears to actually happen. My life is better. But when my life is overall bad, I realize I am not praying.

Could this be a coincidence? I think not somehow. Also, sometimes after not praying for long... I feel ashamed to come to pray to Jesus, to God... right when I need it. It's like that little voice in the back of your head "oh, now you are in need of help and you seek to pray, but what about when you are doing well?" and this somehow discourages me, makes me feel like a person who takes advantage.

Can anyone relate or have some input on this? I remember, I think... might have been more than once.. but few years ago, I was praying and talking to Jesus as to what I have done today, what I succeeded, what I failed, what got me in awe or where I did a mistake etc.. it felt great to share this and things were working great. It really felt like a connection, as how some people out there say "you need to discover God/Jesus", usually that phrase is not taken serious... but I know there is more to it.

I really wish I would regain that moment, that connection. I am just too ashamed that I have to return to God/Jesus because I am in a needy time. And this is what stops me, the shame.

You're talking about how you feel.

Meanwhile, Jesus went to the cross for our failures and imperfections.
The Almighty sees Jesus when He sees us.

Yes, feeling shame, guilt, embarrassment of being needy are all tricks in the ego's (devil's) toolbox
to keep Man away from God.
And yes, God only sees our true selves...pure and sweet.

God wants YOU...just as you are...He wants you to turn to HIM!
Do not turn away from Him cuz of ridiculous shame that is nonsense.

Be humble, yes...be a child ...yes....you are placed in a terrible situation ...you have these senses that distract you ...
desires to watch TV rather than connect deeply with God....so what ....
God wants even a second a day when you can recognize and acknowledge Him.

That second turns into a minute....then it turns into an hour....your love will grow and that is all He wants.
Trust me He does not want your shame...only your constant turning only to Him, honey.


Homework: Contemplate Psalm 37:4 Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Think of yourself as a puppy ...and God only wants to kiss your little tummy and love you up....
don't begrudge Him that with silly shame, my little darling person.
