I came across this video this morning and found it interesting…
But one thing that saddened me, is not one person said ‘Friend’. My definition of God is all those things in that video, but more than that, my definition of God, is friend. He/She is someone I speak to regularly, just like I speak to my family and friends. He/She is someone I TRUST with my deepest fears, my biggest longings, and my highest dreams. He/she is someone in whom I have put my life, and know and expect that He/She guides me life, daily.
And, I believe that a personal relationship with God, and with Jesus, is what He/She wants more than anything else. He/She waits for…longs for…. us to desire the same…..
I can’t help but feel that we’re missing something really, really BIG here. Yes, God IS everywhere. Yes, He/She IS love, and joy, and all of that good stuff. But God is also a personal God. God delights in our relationship with Him/Her. It’s why we were created, is what I believe. To commune with and worship our Creator….
