He's always there to listen and he'll never turn you away; so why is it so hard to keep up our end? I think one of the main reasons is laziness. That, and a serious lack of understanding and comprehension of the grace and love that Jesus gave us when he died on the cross. So what can we do when we feel lazy? How can we maintain our end of the relationship? Tell me what you think! :D

Thought for the day
This is my bible. I love the way it looks, I love the way it feels, I love the way it sounds when I turn the pages, and a few other ridiculous things. ;) But more importantly, I LOVE what's inside. It's odd though, even though I love reading it, I can't seem to make myself sit down and actually do it. Paster Russ once said that if anyone of us ever told him that we "didn't have time" to read our bibles that he would come kick us in the shins. haha! he was kidding of course, but the passion behind the statement was powerful. There is no excuse for why we as Gods children don't spend more time with him. As he continued he also said, "Every relationship is sustained by communication. This applies to all relationships. If you don't talk to a friend for a long time you grow distant, So what makes our relationship with God so different? "
