Our relationship with God should be of no less importance than our earthly ones. Just as we invest time and money into our friends and families, so should we in Him.
psalm 63:1 voice
“O True God, You are my God, the One whom I trust. I seek You with every fiber of my being. In this dry and weary land with no water in sight, my soul is dry and longs for You. My body aches for You, for Your presence.”
Yesterday, a storm showed up and surprised us all (the Weather Channel included!). We heard the normal noises of a storm and then boom, the power went out! After the initial shock of being without our electronics, my siblings and I found ourselves talking about life and betting cupcakes on when the power would be back on. From that conversation, I learned that “temporary friendships” are apparently a “real” relationship title, where you talk sometimes and then sometimes you don’t.
I’m not even going to pretend to understand that, but I do know that God wants much, much more than a temporary friendship with us! Continuing the thought of last week’s Inflorescence post, God desires to be close friends with us. Meaningful friendships requires there to be some pursuance from both parties and a commitment to each other. I think we could all agree that God has already surpassed the role of exemplary friend, but what about you?
Could He say that your pursuance of Him is reminiscent of David’s?
You might not have an answer to that question, but you can work towards making that a “yes”!
