nothing between my soul and the Savior
Last night was communion at our church. As I sat quietly searching my heart and asking God to point out any sin in me I was convicted. Deeply convicted over my inconsistent prayer life. I am so accustomed to checking fb, updating my status, and maintaining my blogs daily. And when there is a failed internet connection I immediately try to solve the problem or find my husband to check the router or call our provider to fix the problem! How diligent am I at repairing a "failed connection" I have with my Father? I have been known to go days without realizing there is a communication error in my prayer life. Am I that self absorbed? Will you agree with me that much of the thrill of communication (via fb and email and blogging) is the response? I wouldn't put a lot of work into conversations that I knew were going to be one-sided. As much as I like the sound of my own voice and absolutely think my opinions are important and worth sharing (and usually RIGHT wink.wink.) I wouldn't continue conversations if there were no response. My gracious God is always there. always listening. always responding. I often rush in and out of His presence without even pausing to listen. to adore. to revere. When my communication with God is hindered by sin how quickly do I notice? How earnestly do I respond to repair the broken connection?
