The hardest time for me to stay connected to God is not when times are hard, but when nothing is really going on. I don’t need help, I am not seeing wonders and feeling grateful, I’m just living life and there is no big thing. However, I have found that in those times, if I stay connected through prayer, reading Scripture, and attending Mass, I am being fed in ways that I will see later, and sometimes I’m even called to something wonderful that I never would have heard otherwise. So even if you think you’re wasting your time with nothing to say, just go and sit. Maybe you don’t have anything to say, but He might.
