The One About Trying to get Signal

there-must-be-signal-here-somewhereAs we walked down the path, my son kept holding his hands up in the air.

Apparently he wasn’t praising God or even trying to block the sun that was shining in his eyes, so what was he doing?

You have probably guessed that he was looking for a phone signal!

You really have to be pretty passionate about a phone signal to wander around the countryside holding your phone in the air.

This left me wondering about how passionate I am about maintaining my signal with God.

You see, God is closer than you think! God promises to be with his followers always and so we can never be out of his presence.

God’s signal to us is strong, but we have to be willing to be open to receive his signal and to respond to it.

Are we willing to do this, even if it costs us or it involves us investing time or doing things that might look out of the ordinary?

God wants to know us and he was willing to send his son Jesus to this world to show us the way to God. Jesus chose to sacrifice himself on the cross in order to open the way for us to know God. 🙂

God really does want to know us! How much do we want to know him?

May we become more passionate about receiving God’s signal!
