Your Connection to God is Constant and Unconditional

If you’ve been around for awhile, you know how much I believe in having a solid morning ritual. All through high school I used to say that my daily happiness depended on six habits.

1. Good Sleep
2. Eating good food
3. Exercise
4. Prayer
5. Scripture Study
6. and Journaling.

If I was having a bad day, I’d run through my magic 6 and inevitably, I’d find something missing that was likely contributing to my bad mood or struggle. I still believe those six habits add a lot to my happiness, but I confess that sometimes, getting all of that in can take some time. Especially with young kids when time to myself felt scarce. I still needed my magic 6 habits, but it felt harder and harder to do my habits in the perfect way I wanted them to look and it felt like it took all day to make it happen. I joked with my close friends that it felt like a full time job just to take care of myself and get all my habits in so I felt happy and connected with God. When I laughingly mentioned this to my sister one day she called me out.

“Brooke. That’s a false belief.”


“You believe that it takes a long time to do those things. You believe it takes a long time to connect yourself to God. What if that simply wasn’t true?”

I was a bit stunned. She had grown up with me and seen me function this way for years. For her to just flat out tell me that I had a false belief of how long this takes was shocking to my brain. And yet, I confessed that she was probably right. It often took me a long time, simply because I believed it needed to.

Years later, I had an experience, in a moment of desperation because I had not done all those things perfectly, a voice came into my mind and whispered,

“Brooke, you can connect with me instantly.”

I sat there amazed. “What? I can?”

“Yes. Just choose to be connected. Right now.”

In a quiet three seconds I got present, took a deep breath, and gave myself permission to be connected with God. Yes, I could be connected even if I hadn’t done any of the things I had always believed were a pre-requisite for deserving that connection. I could just choose it, or dare I even say, I could just claim it as a birthright?
