I wasn't raised in a Christian home. I went off to college and struggled through life without God's guidance. Eventually I moved back home because I could not manage the hardships I was facing. I finally realized that I needed God in my life and have been actively pursuing him ever since. My love, desire, and faith grow for Him everyday. There is one problem, however. As I grow closer to Him, I grow farther apart from my mother. My mom does not believe in God and feels betrayed and threatened that God has become the focus of my life. I don't know what to do.
I am subjected to her criticism and anger on a daily basis because I still live at home and cannot afford to move out at the moment. I am torn between God's commandment of respecting my mother and staying away from people who will pull me away from Him. I pray for help regarding this issue daily. Are there any verses in the Bible what you could recommend that could help me in my struggle?
