Making progress in our relationship with God means letting God retell the story of our love and life together. God doesn’t have to make a video or a mix tape to remind us; the tools we need are already available to us. The Bible tells the story of God’s romance with the human race, and with each of us, over and over again. Our worship and regular participation in the sacraments also serve as reminders. And, most importantly, there is prayer. Making use of these other tools, we must prayerfully consider our past, remembering when God was there loving us, discovering those times that we failed to recognize God’s loving presence, and trying to account for those chapters in our story when God appeared to be absent.
