Connecting With God
We live in a world where a lot of what we do is about achievements and being able to check things off a "to-do"-list. When we become Christians it's easy to start applying this approach to our relationship with God, to think that unless I read my Bible every day or if I don't pray or journal regularly God won't be pleased with me. It makes sense that we see God this way, because this is how things work with our boss, our spouse and our friends.
You can't neglect your friends for a few months or years and expect them to still be there for you. God, on the other hand, will never leave us. It doesn't make any sense why he would love us that much, but he does. We can neglect him completely and run in the opposite direction but He still loves us. There is nothing we can do to make him give up on us. We can come to him at any moment and he is there, ready to invite us into his family. No matter how many rules we have broken or how many mistakes we have done our God will never leave us. Every day he is there waiting for us to one day choose him, over everything else, to choose to love him back.
