How do I connect with God?

This is my last of three blogs on connecting, each illustrated by a song. Connecting with God is tough some times. A lot of days even though I don’t feel him, I pursue him anyway. And then some seasons I wander in silence wondering where the heck he is, wondering why he doesn’t break through into…

This is my last of three blogs on connecting, each illustrated by a song. Connecting with God is tough some times. A lot of days even though I don’t feel him, I pursue him anyway. And then some seasons I wander in silence wondering where the heck he is, wondering why he doesn’t break through into my reality. It is perplexing and angst-producing. Memories of his great works in my life seem like distant echos.
 
How about you? I don’t think I’m alone. And I think it might be a little easier on all of us if we just owned up to the fact that sometimes life is a slog – that God seems distant.
 
I always liked this song by Sting. Some days, when life’s junk seems to get in the way and I’m done singing praise songs, it’s all I can do to let the words ring out in my mind.

O my god
Everyone I know is lonely
And God’s so far away
And my heart belongs to no one,
So now sometimes I pray
Please take the space between us
And fill it up some way
Take the space between us
And fill it up some way.

O my God you take the biscuit
Treating me this way
Expecting me to treat you well
No matter what you say
How can I turn the other cheek
It’s black and bruised and torn
I’ve been waiting
Since the day that I was born.

Take the space between us
And fill it up some way
Take the space between us
And fill it up some way
