For some of us, prayer has been a part of our daily lives since we were young. But for others, you may have just started exploring spirituality. Don't let the idea of God seem overwhelming. Wherever you are, God is with you and the truth of the matter is that in order to have a relationship with Him, we have to start some fresh dialog.
“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of
justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” — Isaiah 30:18
It is encouraging to remember that God knows us inside and out, and that He actually enjoys hearing all our hopes, fears, thoughts, questions, and requests. People have asked me how I stay close to God. Truth is, just like everyone else, there are days when I feel distant from Him. But that’s the beauty of God. He isn’t going anywhere regardless of how I may feel. Talk to Him.
Sometimes, you can spot the people who don’t know Jesus very well because the world they see is always so ugly. Even if they use all sorts of religious language, don’t be misled—people who get touched by Jesus don’t ignore the hurt and pain in the world, and yet they see so much beauty in it. They see beauty because they see the future breaking into the present. They see both the beauty in the broken people around them and the beauty that is yet to come when they know their identity as the beloved.
The tragedy in our generation today, is that ladies would rather have a man of God than God himself. Be patient and don't be so eager. You have yet to find yourself in God. Remember this, talk to Him. Build your relationship with Him and He will place someone worthy in your life.
Also, If someone invites you to her religion, do not look down on her, on the contrary, you should thank her; she shares with you the most valuable thing she has; her faith.
