From my 2009 Journal. God is SO big—bigger than my puny imagination can handle. I can see Him occupying heaven’s space with earth as His footstool. I feel like an ant in His sight. How does an ant talk to Someone so magnificent?
And Jesus says:
“I know. That’s why I came down to your level and became an ant. We want relationship with you. Why do you make prayer such a chore? Such a to-do list? Such a grocery list? Just talk to Me! I already know what’s on your mind and in your thoughts and in your heart. You don’t have to speak it for Me to know it. But I love having conversation with you. I love it when you tell Me about your day and when you’re worried and why you’re afraid and who you’re concerned about. Just talk. Just tell Me. And if you’d rather draw a picture in your mind, that’s okay too. I love you, you know. You already know you can trust Me. You just need to learn to relax and enjoy Me. You keep saying you need friends. I’m the best friend you’ll ever have!”
I talk to Jesus all the time as a friend and especially thank him for things that pop into my thoughts thru the day, know you do as well Karen. Hugs Jerrie

How appropriate now!
Thank you so much, Karen, for the reminder that- God does not define and describe prayer as a “to do list”-
but rather, a conversation between One who is loves perfectly & who loves imperfectly.
