I've been thinking a lot about relationships, and what it means to have a soul satisfying connection with someone. In living in a culture saturated with tools and devices that allow for easy access and escape into a virtual reality, it seems as though there's becoming a lack of appreciation for "real world" connections with others that are so fulfilling that one would forget to pick up their iPhone, iPad, or any other "Me" device that's in existence.
In my view, as a culture, we're placing to much priority in tools and devices that give the illusion of real intimate connections with others that during times of testing does not hold water, weight, or pan out.
We are placing too much time, energy, and effort in devices, tools, and superficial connections with others that does not edify, encourage, or push us to be better individuals today than we where yesterday, or a minute ago. It's essential that as we advance in our technological capacities, and are able to communicate and connect with others in ways not realized generations past that we hold to and strive to cultivate real intimate connections that will keep you content, in peace and fully satisfied. Thus, you will be setting yourself up for a more abundantly joyful life allowing you to live free, well, and in perpetual peace. This requires your most precious commodity -- time!

Real soul satisfying intimate connections requires time. And the best place to spend much of your time, in my view, is in The Word of God. The Word of God, the bible, is the best place to spend as much time as you can for in it you will discover all the answers needed to live a life of peace, prosperity, and spiritual restoration. In the Word of God you will discover how to live a life above the World system of corruption and slavery that we've all been born and trained to survive in.
We've been trained to toll, survive, and barely get by in a system designed to manage our lives for the benefit of a few verses living in a Kingdom that exists for your good, and the good of all those that fall under the influence of your stewardship. When you take the time to read, meditate on, listen to, and discover mind blowing Truths in the Word of God, your desire to be with and to know your Creator at a deeper level increases exponentially! The cycle for intimacy with God becomes fortified in your life, you become more trusting, and living becomes increasingly more enjoyable and satisfying! But, it all starts with time.
It's essential that we learn and move to spend our time wisely in order to live lives of hope, peace, and freedom. Intimacy requires time. Time on this plane of existence is finite for us, and we have to learn to spend it wisely! Real deep knowledge about someone does not come overnight, so make it a priority to use up your finite time with discretion and cultivate deep intimacy with your Creator in addition with life minded individuals!
May His Face shine on you and give you peace!
One simple way that I've found useful in getting God's Word into my life more frequently is by listening to it. I often listen to it during long drives, showers, and while doing chores around the house. This may be something that you can incorporate into your life as well.
