So, here we are, on October 1. The first day of the ‘five minute free writes’ writing challenge. Today’s prompt is: move.
Move. I’ve heard it said that if you can’t sense God’s presence in your life, you can be assured that He is not the one who has moved; you have.
Try as I might, I can’t understand why anyone would move away from God. Yet, we do it everyday in the choices we make. In the small choices and the big ones.
It’s the same in any relationship. If you’re not consciously moving TOWARD someone, you’re moving away from them. I suppose that we are always constantly moving. Either toward someone or away from someone.
It’s all up to you which way you chose to move.
I know that I want to be consciously moving toward those people who love me and want what’s best for me. This includes God.
I want to draw nearer to those who cherish me and our relationship. Those who also have a desire to move toward me. Those who can take one look at the worn expression on my face or hear my exasperated voice on the other end of the line and know that I need a hug. Or some positive words of encouragement.
These are the people that I need to surround myself with. This includes God. He knows all and sees all.
And I have to remember these words…
Until tomorrow for day #2…blessings to you in His name.
