What to try in Him. Daily obedience. So trust-worthy is He. Never once, not even one day been egotistical, selfish, passive, lazy, or weird. "The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works." Psalm 145:17

Do try it, believer. 

Try prayerfully seeing each new day as a great adventure of faith, totally planned-out by your compassionate Lord, the ultimate world-changer, need-meet-er, and Guide. Try viewing those who wander in and our of your day as valuable non-accidents. Remember all that God's done for you in the past (too many forget and wander away..), thank Him, and inquire about the future. Got a plan for you. God's knowledge of you right now lacks nothing -- it's picture-perfect. He knows all you've done, all you really are, and will do. His knowledge is framed in unconditional Love for you. Loves you so much He can't take His gaze off of you

To Jeremiah God said, “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.“ (Jer. 31). That's exactly how He feels about you too. Wants to hug you! He woos us back, when we wander off. He draws us in, when we don't even know Him.. only some history on Him.

We opt to get the vertical relationship right knowing that all the horizontal relationships will fall into place. This vertical relationship with the Lord is so cool. No, it's far better than that. And it’s a twenty four seven three sixty five sorta thang. I mean living all out for Him.
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Rev 5:13  
Daily, in whatever He leads you to do.. worship Jesus and give Him the glory. 
Knows better. He really does. Knows you so well.
“Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2 
Our resurrected bodies will pretty much be like His. You’ll be an upgraded version of what you are now. It’ll be so cool! Believers, when we see Jesus face to face, we’ll be like Him. Except He’s God.. always has been and we are not. Never are or were.
The weather changes and is sometimes fickle, but He won't and isn't. Not spooky, twitchy, religious or hinkey acting.. ever. He's never been that way. Just pure and holy is the Lord. So SO faithful when there's no one else who really cares for your soul. 
Not foul. Nope God is good -- he's never one day been creepy even a little bit. 
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” (Rev 5:12). 
Be a blessing. Bless with your words and heart. Let God via your prayerful Bible reading make you winsome like He is, not spooky weird or religious. How would that draw anyone to Him?

Worldly stuff, it’s so overrated, but none can overrate you and your love, God. Don’t need the worldly stuff -- I mean what’s of this corrupt world-system.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Cor. 5:17).  
We are brand-spankin’-new creations in Christ! Born all over again. Spiritually. Needed that. Wasn’t born so right the first time. Yeah, a forgiven sinner–me.  Grateful. 
Q. What did you leave behind.. that you now don’t even miss.. when you became a follower of Jesus?  The Bible says of us, “…you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (Jam. 4:14).  
Lead on, loving Lord. Lead me all the way through. So glad that You see it all. I choose to trust you today. You got me this far, and I pray You will be glorified, Jesus. 
Q. You okay with that? How do you handle not knowing what will happen in your life? 

What to re-try. Hitting two knees again with intimacy and candor. Returning with hat in hand (humbly). Grab your Bible again..regardless of how you feel. Re-go to church, where they soundly teach the Bible. It doesn’t need to catch dust--the Book doesn't. We have a love letter from a Lover! From His heart to yours. And its far more than just that. We worship Him, not some mere paper in a volume. But do read through the whole Love-letter (Bible) again. Q. You don’t typically start in the middle of a letter, or merely read the first part of one and then bail do you? 
No, you want the whole context of it. I challenge you to re-look at the verses that others tend to pass on over – they are equally as valuable and edifying. Read the whole love-letter. It’s all God-breathed, the Bible. True!
“And the four living creatures said, 'Amen!' and the elders fell down and worshiped." (Rev). Re-take the Good News of the Gospel to a friend while you can.

“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.“ (Jer. 31).
