I'm really thankful I went to church tonight. When I got there I was feeling tired and my heart just wasn't into it....at first.

I really made a connection with God tonight...I don't know how to put it into words. But what I need know is, how can I have this kind of connection all of the time and not just at church?

I listen to Z88.3 and I love contemporary christian music...I pray and I talk to God on my own terms/in my own time, maybe this is the problem.

I've been getting a lot of messages lately and I thank God I've had the sense to listen...I hear you Lord!

Please take a minute to listen to the song... I've also posted the lyrics which are quite powerful.

The more I seek you
The more I find you
The more I find you
The more I love you

I want to sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand
Lay back against you and breath
This love is so deep
It's more than I can stand
I melt in your peace
It's overwhelming

You can fnd the song on YouTube. The More I Seek You by Kari Jobe

Hi Mel Warmest greetings... I am so sorry - I had promised to send you a beautiful cd that I had - and I thought that I did, until one day I was cleaning behind the desk in my office, and there was the package all done up ready to be addressed. I think you would still really enjoy the cd - it is one that brings me so much hope and comfort when life just seems to get a little much sometimes, and when there isn't anyone in the flesh to share it with. I turn it on, go to bed - and am enveloped in His presence and love. I see you are a member - contact me again with your address and I'll send you a copy. I am so sorry the last one didn't reach you. Blessings Contented

Hi Mel, I was where you are now, about 7 years ago when I first came to Florida. I've had a relationship with G-d all along, but I was learning about me, inside and outside. A friend gave me a book to read "conversations with G-d" by Neal Walsch. Very interesting book, it's not a religous book pro or con for any religion. It's about awakening your inner sense of G-d for the most part. I've read all of the CWG books now, there are five or six. I also agree with thunder, G-d is very where in everything. I've started to breed monarch butterflies. Once you see the caterpillars transform into a butterfly how can you deny the existence of supreme being. Just as one tiny example. The other larger one is babies, any species. The trees, the grass the interaction necessary for each level of our bio system to interact with all of us to maintain that delicate balance called life. Nat

I agree with thunderheart44 That one can truly see God in the littlest things. If one just takes the time to slow down in life. Look and listen his works are all around.If one does not look for the "Big Miracles", but look for the little ones all around.The wonder of a tree blowing in the wind. The wonder of the flowers in the meadow. Rainbows after a gentle rain.

You know lonely I think it comes down to being able to see god in all the little things.I see his work in the trees and the grass,the mountains and the ocean, and especially in children.Notice him all around you in your everyday life and I think that connection you seek will find you !!

Thank you Azure, I've been on the road to self-acceptance/discovery for a while now. I think I've finally come to terms with the past and am focusing on the here and now. God definitely works in mysterious ways as I've felt a peace recently that I've never known until now. Of course there are the ocassional ups an downs but I'm definitely more at peace with myself than I've ever been.

Thank you for sharing your story and advice about the church. I've been to several different churches over the years and have really gotten a good feel for my comfort zone. I consider myself to be non-denominational but my current church describes itself as inter-denominational. It's a little different from my old church but here there aren't the politics and bickering that drove me away from the old one. Also, this church is fairly normal and doesn't have any wierd doctrines or teachings that I've dicovered yet.¿ :)¿¿ No "Spongebob is Gay!" talk here. lol¿ What were they thinking?

Anyway, I've heard over the years that your relationship with God should be constant. If that's so, then how do I maintain this level of connection all of the time? I do agree that the feelings aren't everything...and I know I can worship no matter where I am... but there seems to be such big difference between the day to day and last night...and somehow that seems wrong. Maybe it's my misconception of things. I don't know. The only thing I do know is that I want more (both spiritually and emotionally).

Do I make sense?
