This is from Psalm 46 verse 10.
This is hard line of scripture to understand. It takes a while to understand who God is. You never see him, but yet you can feel his presence. Having God in my life is such a blessing because He helps me become who I am. God created us in his image and formed all creation. He has this amazing capacity full of love, forgiveness, compassion, and redemption. I may be spiritually strong, but I still feel like I am still getting to know God. I feel like there are always ways to get to know God better.
I have my ways to connect to him. I love listening and singing to contemporary Christian music. The connection is the strongest when I am singing Christian music because I feel like I am filled with the Holy Spirit. Christian music is full of so much inspiration, spirit, and emotion.
Another way I can connect to Christ is through nature itself. The best place where I can feel God’s presence in nature is the mountains. That is why I love hiking so much. Going up the view, you are surrounded by God’s creation and along the way you can hear animals and sometimes a brook, creek, or waterfall. Once you reach the top, you can look at the view and you feel impressed by all that God has created. Sometimes it feels like you can look beyond what you can see.
Volunteering is another way I am able to connect to God. I feel as if I am called to give back to those living in poverty and homelessness. My spirit always seems to lead me in the direction of nonprofit. I know that I meant to work in nonprofit. When I volunteer, I get something out of it when I see the looks on the people’s faces that I am helping. To know that I have left an impact on someone else’s life is all that really matters.
So, what are ways that you connect to God?
