Sometimes I go through seasons where my prayer life is just off. Plain and simple, I neglect spending time with God. I pull out of it, but then it happens again. You know the story.
It's natural to have ups and downs in all matters of the Spirit. I think that's why Jesus didn't let Peter, James, and John stay on the mountain where He was transfigured. Where can a man go from there? Once you've seen that, my man, you've pretty much seen all you need to see. You either go on to glory, or you go back down the mountain!
Life was intended to live on the peaks, in the valleys, and all in between. You cannot live on the mountain every single day. I get that.
However, I think I'm too quick to chalk up my lack of God-conversations to the natural world of ebb and flow.
I think my neglect to pray is, in its truest sense, rebellion. It's me wanting to live life on my terms. In the end it's not only immature, it's dangerous.
