When I Placed God In Second Place

It crept up on me. I didn’t know when it started.


The last month? The last six months? Last year?! I didn’t realise as I was slowly smothered by cares and concerns, distracted by desires and discouragements; God became second place in my heart. Just one degree off, little by little.

And He no longer is my centre of adoration and life in my life. I still love Him. I’m still on the journey with Him. What I wasn’t careful with—I’ve allowed good intentions and desires to take the place where God is supposed to. Robbing my unadulterated joy and contentment when—God is enough. 

I want Him back to take first place in my heart. 


Praying the same for all of us. To not pursue the temporal to fill the temporal. But to have a simple devotion to God who is the only One who can completely fill the void in us.



Everlasting God (New Life Worship)

One thing I know that I have found
Through all the troubles that surround
You are the Rock that never fails, You never fail
One thing I know that I believe
Through every blessing I receive
You are the only One that stays, You always stay
You never change, You’re still the same
You are the Everlasting God
You will remain after the day is gone and the things of earth have passed
Everlasting God
