But the intimate relationship with God that we have allows us to come to Him day or night with any issue that troubles us knowing that we will find peace. Our relationship with God through Jesus Christ sustains us in times of trouble. We are living in frightening times. If you don’t have an intimate relationship with God, I encourage you to begin to fellowship with Him daily. When you want to deepen your relationship with God, you need to move beyond simply knowing about Him and seek personal encounters with Him. How Does a Modern Day Jewish Rabbi Interpret the Psalms Differently than a Christian Would? In this fifth and final piece of the dialogue (see here for part 1, 2, 3, and 4) Barbara Marx Hubbard shares about her own journey. So often we have a perspective of God sitting on the throne in that huge authoritative way and that we are the ones  always approaching Him . Do you remember the moment when Dorothy and the Tin Man (Haley) and all the rest came up into the castle?
Do you remember the moment when Dorothy and the Tin Man (Haley) and all the rest came up into the castle, when they went into the throne room they were looking at that fire that was came out of there and heard: “don’t come near the fire”.
In our own development of our own passion that we have towards God we should learn of the passion that God has for us. The more we realize His passion to have a deeper relationship with us, the more we will experience our greater desire to have a deeper relationship with Him. Even if you don’t have a full understanding about the word “LOVE”; it might help you to define your relationship with God even more. You know, I love to spend time with my family and even more with my husband and when I am not really sure that he wants to spend time with me for some reason; I am disappointed. It’s up to our choices, we have the opportunity to choose to give our attention to Him and be with Him. Talk to Him as you would talk to a companion that is with you when you’re running errands, travelling to and from work, or between classes at school.
I sometimes think, that he does not hear me at that moment as he is busy doing something else. The Psalms show that sharing life with God involves communicating with Him in all types of circumstances, such as lamenting hardship, expressing joy and gratitude, raging against injustice, asking for needs to be met, complaining, celebrating, and more.
In the Psalms, people are stripped of worldly things that give them a false sense of security and fleeting fulfillment, and then discover that they can gain ultimate security and fulfillment through relationships with God. Invite God to break through the shell that shields you from the harsh realities of this fallen world so you can then discover through that brokenness how much you need God – the same process that the Psalms describe. While the Psalms honestly acknowledge the problems of our fallen world, they also express an optimistic faith that God can solve the problems through redemption and salvation. The Psalms show that happiness is ultimately found not in external circumstances, but in God, and the key to finding happiness is reorienting your life so that pursuing a closer relationship with God becomes your top priority.

In the Psalms, people develop stronger faith by seeking God through prayer, asking God to meet their needs as they claim His promises and entrust their lives to Him. Do you ever just talk to God, ask for help, pour out your heart, even problem-solve with the divine source?As post-moderns, we may feel uncomfortable in the kind of face-to-face encounter with a divine Other that traditional religions taught. You will need to have a login to our World Spirituality Online Community to participate in the weekly discussion thread. Marc Gafni, from his Certainty book, which will be re-released as part of two-volume Integral Religion. When they went into the throne room they were looking at that fire that was came out of there and heard: “don’t come near the fire”. We think that we are not worthy to have that, but that’s why we are made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The word “follow” here means “to chase after, to run after and to pursuit.” Surely, God in the form of goodness and mercy is after you and pursuing you.
All sense of unworthiness will dissipate and disappear the more you know how much He likes you and how much He wants to spend time with you.
I am so grateful to have a relationship with God on a personal level where He understands my every thought before I can even utter a word.
I praise God that I can come to Him when I don’t even know how to put into words what I’m feeling and yet have Him understand me completely. What a comfort it is to know that I have His Spirit in me to lead and to guide me when I need direction. But as amazing as our relationship is, there have been times when I’ve tried to share certain feelings and emotions with her that she didn’t completely understand.
Sometimes I go on and on and become confused, I do forget that he does not become confused and knows exactly where I am at. Regularly and honestly express your thoughts and feelings to God, confident that He is listening and He cares.
Let the Psalms help you sense how sin can alienate you from God and make your Creator sad, and let the grief you feel about that fuel penitence in your life.
Expect that freedom and joy will flow into your soul through the cracks left by brokenness as you place your trust in God. Never lose hope when challenges and suffering enter your life; know that God is always willing to help you.
So whenever you feel stagnant, dissatisfied, or empty, renew your relationship with God, and you’ll experience the happiness of true fulfillment. Some of us associate the word God with the mythic or fundamentalist God – the scary patriarchal deity of childhood religion, the one whom science rejects, and evolution debunks.Yet even when we can find spirit in nature, or in our inmost self, we unconsciously miss the comfort and inspiration of relationship with the personal face of the divine. Every sunset gives us one day less to live but every sunrise gives us one day more to hope. But when I wake up in the morning, I can make up my mind to do my best to enjoy my day, I will strive higher, rise above obstacles and live in health, abundance and victory.

I think that is sometimes the perspective that people have of God, whether it is knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or subconsciously that we have that perspective of God. Likewise, as a woman she has to deal with things that I have no clue about and can lend very little support in.
Lean on Him in the small things as well as the major decisions of your life and you’ll find that your relationship with God will grow stronger and stronger with each and every day.
They describe faith in action while dealing with the tension between this fallen world’s realities and the hope God offers you.
Orient your life around your relationship with God, investing most of your time and energy into growing closer to Him, and then everything else in your life will fall into place in a healthy way. In this course, we’ll unfold a series of integrally informed practices for coming into that relationship. I think that is sometimes the perspective that people have of God, whether it is knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or subconsciously that we have that attitude towards God. We’ll look at the different forms the personal face of the divine can take, and the different ways that you can relate to the personal God.At the core of this teaching is the Three Faces of God.
Marc will be participating in this group weekly, giving you even more access to this profound new teaching.Each week Dr. Knowing that God longs to spend time with you is the key on how to have a relationship with God.
Logic is argumentative, aggressive upon the mind, splits the world into right and wrong, us and them. This will be announced weekly in the Private Group and this space will be used to engage with others exploring the same topic.
