Quit Being Complacent in Your Faith - Take the First Step of Drawing Near to God

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. - James 4:8a (NKJV)

I write this post with an extremely heavy heart.

- Yesterday at church, I was singing on stage, looking out at the sparse crowd of people. It seemed like every Sunday, there were less and less attendees. I knew that Covid did a big number on our church, but I just couldn't fully believe that Covid was still the reason for the steady decline of people each Sunday. Even the attendees who had shown up yesterday, looked tired. It made my heart heavy. I could remember the days when our church was so crowded, people couldn't even find a seat! Some weeks, they would be worshipping loudly, cheering, and clapping with the music. They seemed so joyful. What happened?
