I’ve been pretty quiet here in blogland for the past month or more. There is much in my heart and mind. However sometimes I wonder what would happen if we would spend as much time talking with and listening to God as we do all of our friends and family? I mean, I pray, I read, I journal and then I run to talk with my family or friends. What do they think of what I just learned? Do they agree? What if they don’t? Does it matter? My time with God was my time with God, not theirs.
My words and thoughts are simple. Sometimes I struggle to share the reality of what I believe but I’m compelled to share. Why? Because my life is richer, so much richer because of others sharing with me. I believe that is a part of life the way God created it to be, in fellowship. Fellowship to me means sharing life, being together. Just for the record it does not mean you have to agree on everything.
So in the words of an author who speaks a language that goes directly to my soul:
Can we only live lives for God if we purpose to solely keep company with God?
So is this the thing: after the heart is won to God, how do we keep the heart with God? Who has a real plan for this? Isn’t this what we have to figure out?
Because only a life contemplating the love of Christ becomes a life acting the love of Christ.
Because all radical Christianity is first rooted in relationship Christianity — with Christ and His children. Right where we are. – Anne Voskamp
