A married couple was driving down the road. The wife turned to the husband and said, "What's happened with us?" "What do you mean?" the husband asked. She said, "We're not like we used to be." "How did we used to be?" the husband asked. "We were closer. More connected. We held hands all the time. In fact, here's a perfect example right now. Remember when we'd get in the car, and we'd sit right next to each other, with me there in the middle." The husband turned to her and said, "Who moved?"
This story illustrates an important Biblical principle that we must always remember. If you are not as close to God as you used to be, you are the one who moved. He did not move. When Jesus calls us to follow Him it involves more than an occasional visit or a part-time activity. If you want to get back to where you used to be, you need to move in His direction. Along the same lines, if you want to be closer to God than you've ever been before, if you want to reach a new level in your relationship with Him, all you need to do is move in His direction. It may be helpful to be reminded that there are no problems that God cannot solve if you will place Jesus at the center of your life.
