Have you ever been frustrated when you can’t get reception for your cell phone? Yesterday, my family & I were driving through Yellowstone WY for our family vacation & there was zero cell reception for probably more than 6hours. For a little bit, it was frustrating but the longer I went without cell phone usage, the more I liked it. Maybe these observations could be helpful to you when you think about connecting with God:
Not getting what we want isn’t always a bad thing
Distractions like phones, tend to interrupt our attention to being present in each moment
With the Holy Spirit, we have perpetual reception because the Holy Spirit is always with us!
Having a break from continual communication is probably more healthy than we often realize
Recently, I had a few problems with my phone. It started to delete some of my email accounts a few months ago, then recently, it would do random & unpredictable things. It became uber funky a few days ago & deleted all of my contacts. Yesterday, it decided to delete all of my calendar appointments & this morning, it deleted all of my email accounts. I felt like I was flying blind – but it also reminded me about how we used to not have wireless phones, nor emails, synched calendars, text messages, etc. Clearly, we’ve come a LONG way in our tech usage, but we aren’t so smart that we don’t need God.
I can have the fastest 4G network, but without the “Jesus” direct line, theres some communication lag ,)
I can have the best wifi access we know, but without the Holy Spirit as my wireless, I’m dead in the water
I can have the best love affair with my phone, but no one completes me more than the Trinity 🙂
