    Most of the time it is the simple, comfortable experiences that have the most powerful and positive impact on my life.

    When given a choice, most people would prefer to slip into a comfy cotton or flannel shirt and some relaxed jeans rather than formal evening wear. This simple comfort creates a feeling of peace and ease that allows for a sense of well-being. Businesses have recognized the significance of this phenomenon. They have identified that casual dress leads to increased productivity and improved morale.

    You should be able to put on Christ in the same way you put on comfortable clothes. Your relationship with Him should reflect a feeling of comfort and well-being. You can be most comfortable and close to Him when your relationship is direct, uncomplicated, and personal. The time spent in God's presence should lead to you feel re-energized, positive and at peace. Formalities, rituals, and ceremonies at times create barriers to a close, personal relationship with Christ. Sometimes you have to “dress down” and keep it simple in order to experience a deeper, more meaningful relationship that is the heart and soul of your walk with Him.

    You may have been mislead to believing that your relationship with God had to be starched, pressed, and folded into a proper formal experience. Now you know that you can relax and be comfortable getting to know Him in a close up and personal way.- Gail Lindsay
