~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 7-Columbia, South Carolina:
As you know relationships come in many different varieties. We have relationships with our friends, co-workers, families, children, and loved ones such as our husbands, wives, or fiancées. However, the most important relationship that we have is with our God. The great thing about this particular relationship is that God is at the center of every single relationship that we encounter in our lives both good and bad. When the Lord is a part of our lives and a participant in our relationships we have the ability to climb insurmountable mountains and go further than we ever thought possible.
You may ask, how is that possible? It is possible through the belief and faith that we have at birth. For the most part we are born with the ability to make decisions in our minds, which originate from within our hearts to know directly or indirectly where the Lord is leading us. When we simply ask for intervention for the healing of a sick child, the reunion of a husband and wife during a period of separation, or the speedy recovery from cancer for a parent we acknowledge the presence of God in our lives. God is always listening to our prayers and especially when we do not think he is there, he is always there.
This does not mean that everything will go our way or that life will not throw us a curve ball. What it means is that those who walk by faith in a close relationship with God have the ability to receive blessings and have prayers answered in God’s time. A family that prays together or an individual prayer for God’s blessing does not guarantee a huge house or lots of money, but it does secure you a place in the Kingdom of God. It can sometimes be difficult to make God a part of our lives and our relationships, but it is definitely a critical element to God working in every area of our lives towards an eternal life in Heaven.
