I will be sharing my little ordeal with you today. I hope you will get value from it and helps you to do the needful.
About last week, I got very busy into work and you know the tiredness that comes with pedaling a sewing machine for hours?. I was really trying to ensure I complete my task for that day without having to roll it over to the next day. While at it, I became so uneasy and I noticed some changes in my body. I knew what those signs were all about. I needed no soothsayer to tell me it was time to bring my activity for that day to a halt.
While I enjoyed the cool breeze of nature as it hugs my body, I strolled home lazily accompanied by cool music for the evening from my favorite artiste Jonathan Mcreynolds – ‘Help me maintain’. I muttered the lyrics of the song under my breath as I sang along yet my body yearns for the outpour of water. Finally, I got home and I found my way to the kitchen to boil water to have my bath. After a few minutes, I received a signal from the electric kettle that my water was ready for use. In no minutes, I poured the water in a bucket I was holding while I struggled to hold my phone well. It was like a flash, I couldn’t fathom how my phone slipped off my hand and fell inside the hot water. I was confused for some seconds before I had my mind back to bring out the phone.
Without so much guess, you already know what happened. My phone was off. I had pending works to be delivered. I felt completely disconnected from the world. The question of ‘how do I do this and that’? races back at my mind. No communication. No expression. All blank out.
While I went through this dilemma, I had an intuition that many are outrightly disconnected from God. Many are far away from God. Many are distant from God. Well, I wouldn’t know why but here is what I have to say.
Have you gone through a difficult time lately? And in the midst of it, you felt all alone and you thought maybe God has forgotten you so you got yourself disconnected from God?. If you ask me, I’d say, that’s not wisdom but all based on assumption. Meanwhile, assumptions are never correct until it’s proven right. Wait for a second! Does a mother forgets her suckling babe???. The feeling of disconnection makes everything distant. It’s really an unpleasant feeling to feel disconnected from God.
Life made me mature before time. When I look back at my life, I see every reason to get connected to God regardless of times there was a disconnection. I am always online with HIM through prayer and gratitude!
I still have days when I sought God and I feel he’s not anything near but I really do know what it means to keep going back. Beyond getting our needs met. He wants a relationship with us. I really wouldn’t know but if you ever feel disconnected from God, I think you should search yourself because you not feeling his presence doesn’t mean he’s far from you, and just because you aren’t hearing him doesn’t mean he isn’t speaking. He is always speaking to us. Do we even wait to hear from him?. The earlier you get it that, praying to God is a two-way phone call, the best for you.
The reason we feel disconnected has more to do with us than with God. You might have been too busy to put God on the back. That obviously could be a reason. We cannot feel connected with God if we don’t spend time in his presence. It’s just like the usual relationship, for it to thrive, you have to maintain and invest everything into it, otherwise, the intimacy will fade away. Just like my phone, I had a phone but no power, hence I got disconnected. In a nutshell, something always births a disconnection(What are you not doing right that displeases God?).
Lastly, If you have in anyway felt separated from God, key yourself into His promises because He will never leave you. He is faithful to keep his words to you always. My question for you is this- How much of a relationship do you have with Him? Do you know Him personally or you just heard about him? Do you seek his heart more than his hand?. Most times, we pray because we want something not necessarily for who He is. Feeling disconnected? Get yourself connected and enjoy the ever-flowing grace and love of God. He loves you deeper than you can imagine. God is not far from you. He is near. Talk to him today.
If you have, it’s time to get yourself PLUGGED-IN. GET CONNECTED, TRIBE!
