It's these times when we must approach our relationship with God as that of a best friend. You ever have that hard conversation with a friend about something that wasn't sitting right between you both? Maybe you were feeling slightly offended by something your friend said to you. Isn't there a sense of relief when you have that strong, nonjudgmental friendship that allows for honesty? A relationship where you can communicate, even if it's sloppy. This is the kind of relationship God wants with you!
"No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you." John 15:15
I may not agree with everything God allows in my life, but I always know He has my best interest at hand. It might not be apparent to me today, but I know He's molding me, preparing me, and watching me grow so I may walk through that open door placed just for me. Don't be afraid to ask God to reveal what's in your heart. That's the only way we are going to make enough room to love HIM with ALL your heart.
