Vintage Gwen Chapel-Mastering Our Relationship With God

For yesterday's post I had gotten on Pinterest and searched 'nail stamping' to see if I could find any tips and/or tricks.  You know, research.  I mentioned yesterday that I read several comments about how some people thought that the stamper didn't work.  My opinion about nail takes practice before it's mastered.  And it seemed to me that those saying it didn't work didn't practice to master it. 
This of course got me to thinking about my relationship with God.  
Oh how many times have I felt like 'it just wasn't working'.
Let's face it, a healthy relationship with the Lord takes daily work, takes practice to master it.  It doesn't always work out but that's no reason to quit.  Honestly I don't think we're ever meant to master it.  But we are meant to learn from what doesn't work and keep going.  Just like a nail stamper is a tool, we have so many tools at our disposal.  The Bible, the Holy Spirit, church, books, magazines, music, communities like #SheReadsTruth.  Each other.  
I don't know about you but I usually don't give up easily.  I know God doesn't want us to!
Between last Saturday's Chapel and today God maybe trying to tell me something.  
No matter how I feel keep working on my relationship with Him. 
Master it, Jennifer, master it!!

2 Corinthians 4:15-17 NLT
"All of this is for your benefit. And as God's grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.  That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.  For our present troubles are small and won't last very long.  Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!" 

That's some exciting truth right there!
What works for you to master your relationship with God?

Happy Weekend!
