Driving the ten miles into town to get to work, I found myself in prayer. Okay, it was whining. I said, "Lord, why is it that sometimes I don't think you are anywhere near me?"
Just then I checked my rear-view mirror and the words etched in the mirror stood out to me. "Objects are closer than they appear" or something similar to that.
My mind raced. God is closer than He seems most of the time. When the Lord is near you can touch Him and feel His closeness. You can speak in delicious whispers. You can hear the heartbeat of God at these times.
I especially love the times when I can almost feel His breath on my face. Those times remind me of days gone by when my sons were little and we lay in bed talking and dreaming about the future. They had big dreams and I had big dreams for them. Terry and I also love to talk quietly before we go to sleep. It is a precious closeness that is so dear. I enjoy whispering into God's ear and feeling Him so very near to me.
Near is much better!
