If I Don't Feel Close To The Lord Who Moved?
Transition often presents many obstacles in our lives.
"If I don't feel close to the Lord, who moved"?
I knew the answer to this question before it managed to escape his lips.
"It is me."
As he recited the answer to the question posed, I realized the truth and meaning behind his statement. Not only did I realize it, but I was replaying snapshots of my "busy" life over the past months and saw the effects. Something had been lacking in my life lately. I knew I needed more of something or someone and I think I even knew Jesus was whom I needed more of, but until I heard the question posed ever so bluntly I hadn't fully accepted my reality.
In that moment I realized that I had strayed. Maybe not far, but I had moved away from Jesus. The circumstances of my life had caused me to be a bit out of sorts and perhaps it's a good thing to be shaken up and deterred from our normal routine every now and then; however, our relationship with God should not be shaken. The one thing - above all else in this life - which matters most is our relationship with Christ.
Ask yourself this very question.
Do you feel close to the Lord?
If you don't, who moved?
