One of the reasons I started this blog was to help me focus. It's so easy in this day and age for God to feel a million miles away. There are so many things out there distracting us from the important things and sometimes we need to take action and refocus.
Like building a good friendship, a relationship with your maker takes time and effort. If you think about all the people you are closest to, they are more often than not the ones you spend most of your time with. The ones you have regular contact with. If I want God to feel close then I need to be in regular contact with him.
I find this really hard to do sometimes... and God understands that. But I can't keep using all these distractions as an excuse. He's not asking for hours of my time, he's asking to be a part of my life. He wants regular contact with me. When I think about it, that's really not hard to do :)
