I was lying in my bed talking to God the other night feeling guilty that we had not been to church as regularly as we normally do. I really do love going to church. I don't go out of obligation - I go because I want to and it gives me that time to re-align my priorities with what God wants, not what I want. It give me a different perspective and keeps me from believing that everything I think is right is right. I love being in church with so many other people who hopefully want to do the same thing. I enjoy taking the focus of life off of little things and putting it where it belongs on more important matters. Most of all I love to feel God's love all around me. Like I said I was lying in bed feeling guilty when I realized that one of the places I feel closest to God - perhaps THE place I feel closest to God is lying in bed at night. When it is quiet and the noises in my brain subside. It was here that I first really started to have a relationship with him. In the comfort of my bed when I was about 12. I liked to think he was just outside of my window watching over me, listening to me. This is where I have the long conversations and feel closest to him. So, I will be happy the next time we make it to church but I no longer am going to feel guilt. As long as my relationship is strong and He is in my heart - that is what matters most.
