It’s easy to feel close to God while doing ‘religious’ things like praying, reading Scripture, engaging in acts of mercy, worshipping or reaching out to share God’s love. If you’re not careful, however, you can actually begin to believe that the only time you’re connecting with God is when you’re religious. But God wants you to experience God’s unconditional, transformational and invitational love every single moment of your life – including those moments that seem least religious. Like when you steal a few minutes of quiet in the midst of a chaotic day, argue with your teenager, volunteer in your community, cope with the fallout from something you wish you’d never done, talk with your spouse, attend a church meeting, hold your child or laugh with friends. Which actually makes a whole lot of sense when you think about it. After all, it’s always God’s time.
