Are you feeling right now that God is way too silent or, at least, the connection is static at its best? Don’t worry. Help is near. God is near.
The best way to connect with God is prayer. Keep on praying even when God seems to be silent. God wants to live in you, to be your everyday companion. Keep on praying and know that God is right there with you no matter how you feel. No matter how static the connection seems to be. God is there. Full of compassion, full of love, full of grace.
Life is life. We are called to live our lives with Jesus. There is nothing better than that. We are called to breath in God’s grace and breath out all the negativity of the world. We are called to live out our faith in our messy lives. That’s why there are some static connections once in awhile. But God is near. God does care.
–Henri J. M. Nouwen
When we do present the whole of our lives to our Lord we are blessed. God is delighted to answer our prayers. God’s blessings are not earthly things but divine gifts that nourishes our souls. God knows what you need even when you don’t know it yourself.
Rest in God, my friend. Rest in God. Don’t over-analyze your connection. Don’t worry why God seems silent. Rest in God instead. Place your hope in God, not in you, neither in your feelings or happenings. Rest in God, there is nothing more amazing, wonderful and trust-worthy in the whole wide world.
Rest in God because he is good.
Rest in God because he loves you.
Rest in God because his love endures forever!
Thank you for your steadfast love!
Thank you for always being there for us.
Be praised forever and ever!
Give us your grace to always place our hope in you.
Help us to toss away anything than hinders our trust in you.
Bless us as you seem fit and needed.
In Jesus’ name,
