As a Christian, sometimes it can be easy to get into an autopilot state when it comes to our relationship with God. We can perform all the “right tasks,” but with a daunting heart disconnection from God. It is possible for us to do “good things” as Christians, but it still be wrong. This happens when our feet become programmed into performing “Christian duties” but our hearts, while carrying out those “Christian duties” are far away from God. If we are not careful, after a while, our relationship with God can become artificial, superficial, and mundane. We foolishly place God as another person on our checklist to spend time with, not realizing the gravity and depth of what it means to really be in connection with the true and living God.

I can’t believe it’s been two years. I will never forget the look on your face when I told you I was walking away from the relationship. I remember that day like it was yesterday. The memory of the pain and fear in your eyes used to haunt me. I never imagined myself walking away. […]
