Of late, I’ve felt a bit dry in my spiritual life.
Oh, I still get up every morning and open my Bible,
but it has been more out of habit than true desire.
Do you ever get like that?
I know God is still in the exact same place – seated on His throne –
but He and I haven’t been sharing much intimacy.
I am aware enough of it that it is truly bothering me.
I’ve told Him about it without too much in the results department.
You know what I so love about God?!?!?!?!
He ALWAYS reveals His heart for me.
This past week, I have come across several different devotionals or blogs or something
that have spoken to my heart about this lack of intimacy situation.
Then, as I was reading on Monday, I came across this Scripture again.
“Be still, and know that I am God.”
How many times have we heard that one?
Sure, but did we really listen?
Were we too busy to hear what He was saying?
This time it clicked!
That is the key.
In this busy, driven world full of noise, noise, noise,
we don’t stop long enough to hear His still, small voice.
I confess I struggle in that area.
Every day it gets easier for my body to be still,
but my mind is always in a whirl.
I sit and try to still my mind,
but outside thoughts continue to disrupt the quiet.
Sometimes my mind feels like the energizer bunny!
God loves me.
That is a given.
But a relationship needs intimacy.
It needs time to focus just on the other person.
It’s no different with God.
The more we focus on Him, the stronger our relationship grows;
the more intimate it becomes.
And that is what I desire.
And know that I am God.
Lots of love, Sharon
