Day Seven: It’s All About Relationship
The Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. John 1:14 NLT
We are not created to live life alone. I was tempted to doubt whether God had my best interests in mind. I wasn’t sure I could trust Him after Megan’s death. But He knew exactly where I was and what I was going through. He knew how to reach me and He did.
I’ve heard it said, When you can’t find God start praying and He will find you.
God carried me and my family through the grieving process and over time brought us to a place of healing. We’ve shared generously with others what we learned in our grief. Day by day God brought truth and people into our lives who led us lovingly into restoration. We will always miss Megan but we are no longer debilitated and we are stronger for our journey of loss.
Here is the great truth I’ve learned about life—it is all about relationship. God desires relationship with me and with you. He wants to do life together.
When Jesus came to teach us how to find relationship with the Father and the Spirit He did it by coming to earth and calling disciples to share life with Him. He didn’t simply point them to His Word He lived truth out in their presence.
His goal was that by being with Him they would become like Him. Have you noticed that people who spend a lot of time together begin to act alike? As incredible as it might seem Jesus believes we can become like Him. Here is the key—we do it by being with him in our everyday life. It is all about relationship with him.
