Have you ever had a conversation with someone where it was just effortless? I mean, this conversation was full of laughs, insight, and randomness, but it was smooth. Have you ever just meshed that way with anyone? Could be a woman or a man, sexual or non-sexual, it feels good to have someone converse with you who seems to know EXACTLY how you feel or has the funniest thing to say just at the right moment. It’s amazing (in my personal opinion).
In all honesty, there are few people that I’ve come across where effort was not needed. It worked. But it makes me think of the people that I know (or have known) who just don’t know what to say. It’s like pulling teeth to get them to talk or to get yourself to think of something to say. Sometimes its someone you love dearly and they just CAN’T relate or communicate with you. It’s frustrating!
I get so emotional when I pray. It seems more like babbling in tears than actual talking to God. How does he understand me? How come His part is so smooth, but mine is so distorted? It’s like when you’re talking on a cell phone and you have a bad signal. The person is saying, “I am leaving now. I will be there in 10 minutes.” All you hear is, “I eev I be in its” HUH?! Tell me again?! Can you hear me now?!
It amazes me that God has a strong signal EVERY time we pray and talk to him, but ours is so weak. I’m trying to decipher what He is telling me and all I hear is, “U dumb child!”
As I think back to my effortless conversation and how enjoyable it was I think… how enjoyable would my prayer life be if I could just change the location. I’m not getting signal where I am. I need to move outside away from trees. God, can you hear me now? 🙂
