2 Peter 3:18 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. (NIV)

 I was reminiscing over the years of our marriage.  As the years progressed, our love deepened.  As our love deepened our communication and relationship changed.  We communicated better and our love grew.  We expressed our love in different ways as it grew.  The same is true (or should be) with our relationship with God.  As we grow in Him, as we come to know Him more intimately, our love grows and our communication changes.  We hear Him better.  We talk in more different ways.  Our emotions are displayed in different ways.  Love that has grown over the years is a most beautiful thing.  50+years of marriage developed a very deep love and intimate communication.  The years walking in the love of and for God develop into the most beautiful love relationship that can ever exist on this earth.  We must strive to grow in our love and knowledge of our God and grow in our communication with Him.  We do that through meditation on the Word of God (The Holy Bible) and through talking and listening to Him through His Holy Spirit each and every day.  Communication with our Father should be as easy and natural as breathing.
