top-10-essential-habits-for-a-life-of-deep-intimacy-with-god

Do you feel far away from God? Like He is there but inaccessible?  In your mind He exists, but He doesn’t really care? You’ve been trying, but failing, and an actual relationship with Him is starting to feel indistinct, inapproachable, and unattainable? Or, at best, like something “everyone else” will always have, but never you?

If so, this is for you.

Remember, we do not gain a relationship with God on the basis of sheer will power alone. We do not and cannot force Him to do anything, nor ourselves for that matter. So, its a good thing will-power, talent, and brute force aren’t required here. All we really have to do is show up like we mean it!

This post is about how to show up…

To the Soul Suffering from Marital Loneliness

You know you’ve experienced it… Marital loneliness…

…that ache of feeling unequally yoked? of missing the “friend” you used to have? Or, wondering what happened to the person you thought you married?

But, it’s not because they are gone that you miss them, but rather, and even most especially, when you are in the same room, and living under the same roof!

When You are the Only One Trying in a Difficult Relationship…

Are you in a difficult relationship?  If you are, or ever have been, you know how painful they can be. They suck the joy from our step and the purpose from our souls. And most often we begin to think it is because the love has left that relationship and been replaced by hatred and resentment.

But, in reality, it’s not because we don’t love the person we are in that difficult relationship with, but rather, the relationship is difficult precisely because we DO.

Called to Friendship – The Cure for Loneliness

Loneliness is a real struggle for every human being at some point in their lives. Single people feel it “because they aren’t in a relationship” and those in relationships feel it when they find themselves at odds with their partner. Parents feel it when they feel unappreciated and unsupported. Sad people feel it when they need someone to talk to and their friend doesn’t answer the phone. Happy people feel it when they have no one to share their joy with. Employees or students feel it when their coworkers or classmates refuse to carry their share of the work load. Travelers feel it when they long for home or experience a language barrier. Anyone who wants to better themselves or make a difference in this life feels alone because betterment is always a fight against the current.

But what if I told you, no matter the cause, there is an infallible and always available cure for your lonliness?
