How’s your relationship?

I was told once to imagine your spiritual relationship as a best friend relationship.  If you treated your human best friend the way you treated your relationship with Christ, do you think that it would survive?

If I went days only talking a little to my best friend, and hurting her over and over, and then when I finally came around, just started asking her for HUGE favors because I had gotten in over my head … well, it seems like that would put a great strain on our relationship.

No matter what, relationships are not ever supposed to be one-sided.  None of them should be.

I think it’s amazing that no matter what; the Lord’s love is always unconditional. How awesome is that. That says a lot about how amazing he is. Unlike most relationships forgetting to talk & maintain a good friendship does not break the relationship with Jesus.

I do admit, that I am one whose relationship has not been completely consistent with Jesus & I know that it is not right. I’ve always had strong faith, but have not always been consistent with the way I practice my faith. For example; This past year, I had an amazing year. I was the happiest girl. I felt on top of the world. Life was beyond great. Looking back, I am regretful that I didn’t thank Jesus more for that feeling he gave me. Yet, it’s not till now that I notice that. Life is constantly a learning process. I learn from my past to improve my present and future.

Like most people, I turn to my faith when I am lost or when I want something. I am going to change that. I am working on making my relationship with Jesus my top priority all of the time.  How unfair would it be if I only asked my best friend for something & never actually thanked her or just talked to her.

In conclusion, today is another GREAT day. I just got back from Mass & I feel great. I have great faith that my spiritual life is going up hill from here and out.


God is great, oh yes He is.
