During these quiet moments between you and God, you can gauge whether you are growing closer to God and not more distant. We should look for a growing awareness of Christ's presence and power in your life. If you find Christ's presence in your search, then keep doing what you are doing, growing and learning more. If Christ is absent, then you must seek Him out. This is not an easy task, but it leads to joy and life abundant.
Help me to be honest with you and take time to examine my faith. Lord, I want an intimate relationship with you and to always grow, learn more and to know you better.
