GOD PAUSE: Make no mistake about it, my dear friend. The God who created you is the same God who knows your deepest joys and most intimate sorrows. Try as they may, even those closest to you can't fully related to your pains or your joys. I was just reading Proverbs 14:10 that says “Don't expect anyone else to fully understand both the bitterness and the joys of all you experience in your life.” But there is a God who does know, who does feel and who does understand. Dear Papa, may I and my friend open up our hearts and lives to you. We need to connect with You in such a way that we do life together --- at the most intimate levels. We surrender to You and say “Come on in.” Amen and amen.
