Grappling with the Intimacy Gap

The resurrection power known to those saved — this power to live past hopeless life situations to overcome them, in Jesus’ name — is available for those times where the love-ducts of our intimacy are initially blocked, yet later freed.

The intimacy gap is felt in certain family situations, and at times with friends. These times we fail to truly connect.

It pains us when we’re distant with the people we love. Bridging the intimacy gap has to be our first goal.

The abovementioned resurrection power overcomes the intimacy gap whenever we confront it, usually later on, by courageously and truthfully interceding for the relationship.

It becomes the most important thing of our minute.

And once we’ve re-established the temporarily lost sense of closeness things are again okay.

It’s alright to feel distant awhile — how else is the tension forcing us to come back together again?
