WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 12: Developing your friendship with God

This is my favorite chapter so far because it shared the stories of all the friends of God in the Bible. These human beings are authentic, vocal about their struggles, and truly deeply love God. I couldn’t help but remember my friends for more than 15 years and how when you have something great going on you like to share it with them; we’ve never met but I want to share it with you, God is awesome!

God doesn’t expect us to be perfect but He wants our honesty, He encourages us to voice out our feeling even if it’s a complaint, second-guessing, accusing, and arguing with our creator. My heart and my imperfect personality tear up when I’ve read God’s response to Moses who was speaking with candor, “All right. Just as you say; this also I will do, for I know you well and you are special to me.”

“Dear Jesus, more than anything else, I want to get to know you intimately.” God told the captives in Babylon, “When you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.”
