Talking Strawberries

June 21, 2008

Do you know why He doesn’t often answer prayer right away? Because he wants to talk to us, and sometimes that’s the only way to get us to stay and talk to Him. (Wild at heart, 36)

Interesting, huh? Lately, something has been sitting heavily on my shoulders. My parents. They should have no trouble talking to me, but I feel like they’re afraid to speak to me. I realize that I’m not home often, juggling work, church, friends and running. The brief times I do have with them, we talk about the weather, or some other insignificant subject.

I’m frusturated that my own family doesn’t provide much in the way of spiritual growth. Thankfully, God has put numerous friends in my life who I can talk to. But living in a Christian household should offer strengthening of my relationship with the Father. I feel like I don’t know my mom and dad (spiritually), even though I’ve been with them for over twenty years.

I’m praying for guidance in a way to talk to them. I love them, but I want something more. I want to share in our love for the lord.

I need to talk to Him and depend on Him even more. He makes a way.

May we just pause for a moment to look at His beautiful creations? The Lord is good 🙂
