That's another aspect to my life that I want to work on: My relationship with God.
Last year, I discovered some parts of me that brought deep meaning to my faith and how I understand my place in God's plan. Unfortunately, that discovery brought some experiences and ... uhm... side-effects that served as a pretty distraction and resulted in our relationship reaching a bit of a winter season in December.
But at the beginning of the month, I started reading A Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and among days of good and valid messages, one struck me.
No matter what, I should focus on God. Any feelings and experiences are extra. Bonuses. NOT THE POINT!!!
When I realized my mistake, I prayed for God's forgiveness and asked for some guidance.
Lo and behold, I get an e-mail from a guy responding to a mail I sent months ago (November) who asked for a meeting so that he could help clarify some of the things I've experienced lately.
The meeting was great, explained so much to me and helped me put a lot of things into perspective and now, I can feel God's presence with me again. So here's to a new season in our relationship!
Anyone else been experiencing a distance between you and God? Anything that you need a prayer for? Feel free to contact me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com if you want to talk but keep it private.
