I was having these hazy multi-pastel dreams recently. The ones with the vagueness of a feel good movie in my head. I was having coffee with Jesus.
It was a disaster. I was blabbing too much. It was too one sided.
I prided myself in being a good listener. Who am I kidding? I talked way too much.
It’s like a dream turning into a nightmare.
I saw this video and I knew this was me in my dream state. There are days when there’s too many things on my mind that I just dumped it all in one go before God. There I am, ticking off a mental note of issues that bothers me, people that irks me…a killer schedule that threatens to overwhelm and then just like that, I go off somewhere, forgetting I was in a middle of prayer?
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Not like this. Our Lord deserves so much more. We really need to take time out of our busy schedules to go and meet God like we would meet a friend in a local coffee shop. No distractions, just a looking forward to a time alone to spend unhurriedly with Him.
I found out that waking up an hour before I do my morning routine does great with my relationship with Him. The benefit of talking and listening to my Friend does wonder to my whole day. It empowers me to do the right thing and see matters in the proper perspective.
