In Touch with Him

As a student who attends a university far away from home, I try to stay in touch with my family as much as possible. Sometimes my mother will call and we catch up as I walk to my next class, or we have a group text message conversation with my sister and father as well. Though we are so far away from each other, we feel that it is very important to keep in touch with each other so that we don't "lose" each other, so to speak. If we were to never speak to each other, pretty soon we would not even know each other!
The same goes when it comes to our relationship with God. Just as we make it a point to stay in touch with our family with daily phone calls and messages, we must make it a point to keep in daily touch with our Heavenly Father. We must make time daily to have conversations with Him, and listen to the messages He has for us. When we are feeling far away from God. we need to talk with Him all the more. In Psalm 145:18, it says, “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him.”

Simply Talk to God
God loves us so much, He wants to have constant communication with us. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 that we must pray continually. You might be thinking, well how in the world can I continually pray? Well, if you simply talk to God, you can pray continually. He doesn't want us to be down on our knees all day. He just wants us to talk to Him. Whether it's while you are driving in the car, on your way to work, cooking dinner for the family, or anything else, just talk with Him. Tell God about your day and how you are feeling or any questions you have on your mind.
When Jesus came to Earth as a human, even He spoke every day to His Father. In Luke 6:12 it says, “And it was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God.” Jesus left an example for us when it comes to keeping in touch with our heavenly Father.
My goal this month is to stay in constant communication with God, not only by praying each morning and night, but also by talking to Him as I drive to work, walking to class, or just while cooking food. I plan to open my heart to what He needs to tell me. I challenge you to do the same.
