Matt Sims: Not Done Loving

Editor’s Note: We all know what it’s like to fall into a routine. And we all know how hard it is to break out of our comfortable cycles. Matt Sims speaks on the constant struggle to keep God at the forefront of your life. He also touches on the beautiful promise of God to never leave us or forsake us, even when we feel defeated. Thanks for the reminder, Matt.

“I find myself going through a routine each week. I go through the week without living how I should be living—on fire for Jesus. Then I’ll get to Sunday and sit in church and get inspired. I’ll think, yeah, this week is going to be different. I’m going to make a difference and be a light for Jesus. I am finally done sinning… And then the routine begins again.

Thankfully, God is up there, saying, no Matt. No you’re not done sinning… but I am not done loving you, either.

I have been so incredibly blessed with so many talents and I don’t use them for his glory. Even though I may say I’m playing ball for God to be glorified, in reality, I don’t mean it. Constantly living for God is not easy at all; but I challenge you brothers to strive for this and not to get caught up in the typical Christian routine. Believe me, it’s not fun.

Recently, I have been better about glorifying him in all that I do and praising him in my victories and failures; but I’m nowhere close to perfect. It’s so hard to praise him during failure. But what I always try to remember is what Jesus did—why he carried his cross.

Behold, he said, I am making all things new.

That hits me hard. I’m through waiting on my moment. Every day is my moment to praise him, no matter what. And I encourage ya’ll to join me.

Were not done sinning. BUT, God is most definitely not done loving us and never will be.

Have Faith. He’s coming to make all things new.”
