I just read that the average high school student who owns a smart phone will send about 100 text messages each day.  When you consider that is just the average, some of them must be sending hundreds of messages each day.  I have even seen two teenagers in the same room texting each other.  It makes me wonder how the older generation managed to survive without these smart phones.

    However, we can learn something from these teens who text so often.  Communicating is important.  Without communication, relationships would be lost, feelings would never be shared.  That is why it is important for us to communicate daily with God.  Think for a minute about how God would feel if we communicated with him a hundred times each day.

    Philippians 4:6 gives us some good advice.  “Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God.” (NET)  Notice it says ‘in every situation”, not just in times of need.  We should be talking with Him constantly every day.  That is the best way to experience intimacy with Him.
