I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about so many of all of your different experiences in your connections with God. It really does stress the diversity of what connecting with God can mean for each person. Upon reflection, it makes me ponder whether I’ve been misguided to think that having a feeling or sense of God was the standard for a real connection. Maybe it’s true that we all have our own real connections with God in our own way.
Perhaps that could someday include more of the miraculous or some divine feeling in my life. For now, I’m enamored by what I think about and read in the Word every single day. The intricacy of each line written exactly the way God wanted it to be written. The level of moral aptitude that we’re all called to live up to in our words and actions daily. The focus on unity between all believers in our love for God and love for others. The compassion that God displays to His people bringing them to some form of joy in their life in scripture and in the lives I’ve observed of others.
It’s that kind of stuff that I suppose gives me some form of connection with God. It’s my hope for myself and for all of us that our connections with God will continue to grow into something meaningful and beautiful to us.
Peace to all those who are in Christ.
