At a gathering of friends, REAL friends. I noticed one friend that was acting super distant.
When I moved to their side of the room… they casually moved AWAY. Could I possibly have offended them?
We’d both been very busy and hadn’t talked in ages. But for us, that was kind of normal.
Then, something weird happened!
It was like someone flipped on a light switch in my friend and BAM! We were talking and laughing and having a great time! In one moment — everything was GOOD, again!
That’s kind of like our relationship with God.
Sometimes, it’s great! We’re talking, listening, engaging in relationship, enjoying each other’s company, laughing and crying.
Then, well… we get BUSY.
We get distracted. We INTEND to stop and carve time out for God, but we have things to do. Even when we’re in the car alone, it doesn’t occur to us to start up a conversation with Him.
We get up with a plan to pray. But then somehow, He gets put on the back burner.
I wonder if God feels like I did at that party. Does He feel like when He walks to our side of the room… we just walk to the other?
Wow! Wouldn’t it be terrible if we were unintentionally hurting God’s heart… simply by ignoring Him?
God is LOVING. God is FORGIVING. He will stick closer to us than ANY friend! Just talk to Him.
Take one step toward God… then, BAM!!! In a moment, everything can be GREAT, again!
Is there something that you’re a little afraid to talk to God about? Yeah… me, too! (You can tell me.)
Teaching people how to talk to God has always been a passion of mine. After I wrote the book, Hi God, It’s Me Again, people kept asking WHEN I was going to write another.
So… SURPRISE! Hi God One More Thing; How to Talk to God About the Tough Stuff is on its way! Join me, this Thursday morning, January 30th, at 7:00 AM (CST) on Facebook LIVE, as we celebrate the pre-release! I want all my friends to be there!
