I've been so blessed over the last few months as my relationship with God has been in a period of growth and depth that is so sweet I sometimes have a hard time leaving for work because I don't want to share my attention with other things. As I mentioned a while ago, I downloaded a chrono Bible to my Kindle and it's been the best thing for my scripture reading. This time in the word has naturally affected by prayer time and, in fact, I'd almost go so far as to say that my prayer time is much less. I have discovered my friend, Jesus. Instead of Prayer, I am in conversation with him. I'm finding myself telling him this and that, things which I wouldn't ordinarily have talked about with the Lord being as He would already have known. Or things which wouldn't be important to him. Things like, "Lord, look how cute my hair looks!" or "Lord, I know I should clean the bathroom but I'm just too lazy at the moment."
I've always known that Christ was interested in the details of my life through his great love for me, but I have never elevated my importance to him to such a personal level. Like Abraham, I feel like a friend of God. A new kind of peacefulness has found its way into my heart even though in other ways, my life is a little bit stressful at the moment.
That's all I wanted to say, that Jesus is my friend.
