In Good Faith

For most of my life I never really had much of a relationship with God.  Don’t get me wrong, I was involved in my church but I felt that God was on the other side of the universe and wasn’t interested in what I did so long as I didn’t do anything really stupid or bad … and if I did – the lightning bolts would start to fly!  I treated God like my secretary – telling him what I needed and the deadlines, etc.

When my life fell apart over a three year span I felt even more removed and separated from God.  But God was there the whole time (it was I who had turned away) just waiting for me to stop my foolishness and ask for His help.  When i finally did ask for help my relationship became a real relationship for the first time.

What a difference!  I won’t lie – there are times when my conversations are difficult.  There are even times when I am shaking my fist at the heavens but no matter what happens I know that God has my back and He loves me.  That trust has carried me through some very trying times.

I know that no matter what life throws at me, I will be okay.  I like this new relationship. I like it a lot.

One thought on “In Good Faith

  1. It sounds like you’ve been through a lot and have found God despite any negativity in your life. That’s really great. I know what you mean when you say it seems like God is on the other side of the universe–sometimes it’s hard to realize that God is with you all the time. I’ve felt that way many times. Anyway, I hope your 2015 is superb and that your relationship with God grows!
