I have been in this foreign land for over a year now
I am no longer afraid of getting lost
I have gotten used to this quieter life
But, there is one part of this that I continue to struggle with...
Communication with those that I no longer see on a regular basis
I am thankful that I do not have to wait for the "pony-express",
to hear how those I love are doing.
it is not the same
and time has a way of sifting
those that were friends for a season
from those that are friends for a lifetime
There are really no hard feelings
time marches on, as they say
people get busy
This whole experience causes me to ponder
how well I stay connected to my Heavenly Father.
Sometimes I get busy
and then realize it has been a while
since I have met with Him.
I take for granted that,
when I have time,
He will be there for me.
He loves me, you see.
And I love Him.
Although this is true
taking advantage of the fact that
my Heavenly Father will never leave me
does not foster a close, trusting, intimate relationship.
It feels like when I have not seen someone for a long time,
instead of having a sweet conversation,
we spend the time "catching up" on life.
God and Jesus are the most important things in my life
If that is so
I need to act like it.
Connecting with my Lord and Savior
staying so close
that when others connect with me
His words are heard.
shows love and devotion
grows trust and intimacy
Is the key to peace of mind
I call to you God, and you answer me.
Listen to me now, and hear what I say.
Let us, then, feel very sure
that we can come before God's throne where there is grace.
There we can receive mercy and grace to help us when we need it.
