I feel like I have grown away from God and I don't know how to change that. It's almost like I don't feel worthy of his presence anymore and I don't know how to change that.

I've been in that position so many times. First of all, you've gotta realize that he didnt go anymore or move further from you. You did the moving. Secondly, you are never not worthy of his prescense. All you have to do is seek him. Literally. To change this, seek him with all your heart. Pray. Ask for forgiveness and don't dwell on it. He's forgiven you so let it go. Just seek him.

I want to become closer with God but I don't have any of the cliche reasons to go searching. I've done a lot of things god wouldn't approve of, but I don't feel sorry. I go to church every Sunday, youth group and pray but it hasn't changed me. I need motivation. Is that wrong?

No, I've been in that position before. In my opinion, from what I've learned, you need to learn to motivate yourself. A lot of the time I sat around waiting for God to put this fire for him in my heart and I've realized it doesn't work that way. Being motivated for God is a choice. Try your very best to seek him in everything and have faith in your prayers and things will start turning around. They have for me.

God is amazing, don't get me wrong. He is VERY powerful and has done/still does great magical things! I'm just confused on how one day you could automatically change your thought process?

No, if I came off that it was a one day thing then I'm sorry. It wasn't at all. It took time. It was a process. When my ex and I who dated for like 3 years broke up, I lost a lot of my best friends too and I was extremely lonely. During that period of loneliness I turned to God out of helplessness. So during that time is when my thought process started to change. It definitely took time though. Hopefully that makes more sense for ya

Your past is very different then how you live, act, look etc. now. Besides god, what made you all of the sudden want to change the ways you lived your life?

I mean 99% of it was God. He really opened up my eyes and made me see that the way I lived was very meaningless. Living to get guys attention, to impress people, doing anything to fit in, is not a way to live. It was an empty life.
