Well we have survived the summer time and the kids are now back in school. Life is getting back to its normal patterns as the days grow short and the nights grow longer and the summer greens to the golden shades of fall splendor. As we go about our day to day activities fall offers us a time to reflect upon where we have been, where we are and where we are going. Fall also offers us a time to pause a time to reflect on our spiritual condition. Many times during the busyness of summer with all the family functions and kids running about we forget to take care the most important part of any relationship. Our continued relationship with Jesus. Just as our relationships with our friends or spouses will suffer in neglected so does our relationship with Christ. Praise to God unlike our earthly relationships that will leave us if neglected He has not gone anywhere however many times we in our human fleshly condition go places with out Him and the Holy Spirit because we forget to stay connected with them in our busy summer lifestyles.
With the start of fall it's a good time to take sometime alone and reflect on where you are in your relationship with Christ and if you are feeling connected or disconnected in your relationship. I think we all can find room to grow closer to Christ and have a deeper relationship with Him daily even if upon your reflection you find yourself one of the lucky few that think everything is fine. So if you are wondering how do I draw closer to Christ and regain that connection I had back earlier this year? Hear our some tips to help reconnect.
Remember these are just what they are tips not a formula for a quick reconnect with Christ. Our Father does the drawing of us to Him, John 6:44. So remember that when you are praying and ask Him to draw you to Him and His Son. We have all at one time or another have felt that we have disconnected with Christ because we have let our worldly lusts get in the way. Thankfully we have a merciful and forgiving Father that has given His Children His only Son to accept us back when we his elect have strayed from His presents.
