The disconnect comes when we refuse to accept his gift. The sin in our lives is like a wall that blocks our path to God. Since God sacrificed his son Jesus to atone for our sins, our path to God is covered. That inpenitrable wall turned into a curtain that we simply have to pull back with our repentance and praise in the name of Jesus. God loves us and wants to shower us with love and gifts of strength and peace, we only have to come to God to accept them.
Help me to see past the distractions of this world to experience your love and your gifts. Thank you for your love.
