God and I have a unique communication style.
Because of a difficult past with my health, each morning I wake up and think, Thank you, Lord, for another day! When I lie down at night, my thoughts are the same. The Alpha and Omega has been with me all day, and I want to recognize His presence and His gifts of life.
I want God to know I’m thankful for all He has done through His Son. Without the Holy Trinity, I would be more than lost. So I keep them close—in my heart and on my tongue. I breathe conversation with God every chance I get.
But the one thing I sometimes—often—forget to do is pray. A horrible admission, but one that’s true. I’m so into moments with God that I forget to kneel before Him … to honor His Glory … to ask for His Providence.
Conversation is a wonderful thing, but some moments I need more from my heavenly Father. Those are the moments I remember what He taught through Isaiah: to approach Him with confidence, to give thanks, and to ask. After all, He created me, my heart. And He has given me the desires of my heart as well as a heart that longs for Him.
In those moments when I need more, Abba-Daddy puts His strong hand on my shoulder, pulls me close, and says, “Rest, dear one. It’s okay. Daddy’s got you.”
I hope that I will pray more and that I will use reverence and awe in my everyday, casual conversations with God.
God is always waiting to hear from you. Talk to Him often.
