When there’s tension between me and a friend often the LAST thing I want to do is go hang out with them.
For me it’s often the same with talking to God. I can begin to think that God treats me just with patient tolerance or a kind of sadness at my constant ways of messing up. That’s when my prayer life dries up pretty quickly.
Here’s something that’s helped me: prayer becomes enjoyable when you realize God delights in you, God hears you, and God loves to talk to you.
Did you ever think that prayer could be a fun and intimate encounter with someone who loves you like crazy?
