Communication happens all over the planet. It’s what I call “the traffic flow between minds”. Sometimes that traffic doesn’t flow so well. We don’t get through to another person and vice versa. If we run into a series of bad communication with certain people, we will mostly avoid them, if at all possible.
Being on the same page with someone is more than just a pleasant feeling. In a lively conversation, sparks are flying, inspiration takes place, and we feel exhilarated. Another great aspect of a great conversation is feeling understood.
Silence is golden only to a degree. Of course we all need to give our mouths some rest, otherwise there is communication overload. At the same time we are made to communicate, that pretty much is the essence of life. If we have issues getting the word out or problems taking information in, then we have to work on that. Bad communication skills will isolate us.
God is a beautiful communicator. He can be loud and in your face in an extreme case scenario, but typically His way with people is laid-back. He gives us space. He is curious what we have to say. He loves our minds and He especially loves a good exchange of thoughts, which will inevitably happen in our prayer life. God’s input is always golden.
Granted, it’s not easy to get a communication flow going between Heaven and Earth. We all need help in that department. I find it not easy to pray. But trust me, God does not leave us hanging. He has a vested interest in us praying. God wants to speak with us, and He will open Heaven’s door any time we knock. His door swings wide open. He loves us so much!
There are disturbances that get in the way of our prayer. Sometimes we really have to want it to make it happen. We get distracted so easily. However, our prayer life is well worth fighting for. We will quickly discover that having conversations with God makes way for great conversations with people. It’s only natural since our Creator is connected with all of His creation, and as such He’ll give us insider information. We’ll be able to be a little more appreciative and understanding towards the people in our lives.
We all win when we pray. I dare say, the best thing happening in our lives is having a conversation with God Almighty.
