Day 7: The Most Important Relationship


I can't talk about relationships without mentioning this particular one.  In my life, it is the most important of all.  My relationship with God has been up and down as I try and fail and try again to make him the centre of my life.  It's not him who is moving away, it's always me.  It is just too easy to forget to sit down and read the Bible or to pray about my problems instead of only complaining about them.

I'm not as eloquent about my faith as others are, so I hope I'm not too awkward in this post.  Also, I'm a bit of a people pleaser so I'm scared of offending some of my readers with a direct statement of my faith.  The point is, I believe that Jesus, the son of God, died on the cross for my sins, rose back to life, and wants to have a personal relationship with me.  I need to live like I believe that too.  All my other relationships reflect the state of this one. When I am acting Christ-like, I am a better wife, a better mother, and a better friend.

  2. Thanks for the reminder! I'm in the same boat... always wishing that I could have a better relationship with God, but not putting the work into it that I need to. :)

  3. You hit the nail on the head about your journey with God - I can certainly relate as I'm sure other will too. Thanks.
