I recently found myself in a conversation with a friend who was expressing some distress from lack of a deep personal relationship in his life. I tried to point to our spiritual significance. Unfortunately too many people these days don’t know how to pray, many have never prayed in their lives. He was struggling with what ‘spirituality’ meant! Clearly it is a difficult concept to wrap your head around if you’ve never been in a relationship with God. We know Jesus prayed often, even when he was not alone. Just imagine the countless times God must have encouraged him to ‘keep his chin up’...
This past week has presented some challenging moments, encountering others who needed encouragement as much as I. Like the disciples, I need to put myself in a quiet place and allow God to talk to me, and not act when the situation tempts me to React, to come up with an answer. Can you hear Jesus say the words “Follow me”? Perhaps you know of someone for whom you would like to pray today that God will make his call clear.
