Relationships are difficult. Two people who spend time together can develop problems by spending too much time. I know this happens quite often in schools where friends start a new relationship and spend too many weekends together and grow tired of one another. The honeymoon phase is a natural beginning to a relationship; however, after several years the “honeymoon” phase wears off and they need time apart. Relationships where two people live separated by location rely on phone and email to keep their relationship strong. Communication is the most important thing.
Our relationship with God is the ultimate long-distance relationship. It is imperative to be in constant communication. This relationship is two-way. God speaks to us through various ways like from Bible reading, dreams, thoughts, during prayer, and through godly people. When we care about the person talking to us, we genuinely listen. Listening is a required skill and must take practice. Since we cannot actually see God, we may find it difficult not to do all the talking, complaining, list-making, and arguing. God will listen to everything we say and He even knows what our heart feels. God wants us tell Him everything and He wants to be our go-to person for all our problems. He is always with us weather we feel or believe it. “He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come” (2 Corinthians 1:22). This is a promise that God is with us, His Spirit is given to us with all the power of God. Keep His Temple pure and a Lighthouse shining; leading others to Him.
