I Drifted from God & He asked me to Come Back

Hey Friend, I don't know about you, but this circuit breaker has really taken a toll on me. Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually.
I've been hustling like no tomorrow since the start of the year.
On top of custom orders & online store orders from @alyletters, I have also been working towards the launch of my new coaching programme @alyxmakers. 5 amazing ladies are currently enrolled in my programme & i've been channeling all my time & effort into building a comprehensive course to help them build their creative business. I've been stretched, stressed & on autopilot for so long, I barely realised how far I had drifted from Jesus.
After a particularly draining day, I woke up the next morning feeling helpless, exhausted and at a loss of what to do next. Jesus didn't feel close by & I was desperate. In silence, I sat at my desk and opened my bible. I begged for God to come, to comfort me and to allow me to find him again.
The words he spoke next to me, was a sobering reminder but also breathed life back into my being. I am sharing these words with you today, in the hope that you too, will find your way back to Him(: It's never too late, and He's never too far away. If you seek Him with all your heart, He will be found by you.
"Child, you have drifted from me. Your eyes have turned to the ways of the world and your heart is held captive by fear & worry. Did I not say, I love you, so not worry & seek me with all your heart? I am jealous for you my daughter and I need you to remember that you cannot serve two masters.
I long for your affection. Yes as I long for you, you yearn and seek approval from the world. Oh, how my heart aches for you! Do not worship the gifts i have given to you, do not seek to only please the people i have placed in your life.
Remember me child. Am I the King of your heart? Am I your first love? Do you trust in me? Are you yielded to me? Do you desire my company above everyone else? Is your heart really mine?
I love you child, , i have pursued you, blessed you, anointed you, gifted you with these precious gifts. Are you now going to turn away from me and towards these idols instead? I long dearly for you, but that is a choice you have to make.
I delight in you my daughter, i rejoice over you with singing. You are precious and pure. Though you fall and stumble, I know your heart for me is sure. So, come back. Come back into my embrace. Follow me, seek me, love me, cry out to me and surely I will hear you.
I will fill you so that you will thirst no more, I will satisfy with the deep assurance that you are so loved. I will lift you up and be with you, from this overflow you will then be able to go on loving those i have place around you. Seek me child, only I can satisfy you. I love you.
Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the Lord your God has forbidden. 24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
- Deuteronomy 4 : 23-24
