I have called you to follow Me on a solitary path, making time alone with Me your highest priority and deepest joy.
Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
We are told the opposite.
We live in a world that says busier is better. Quiet time is a useless commodity where nothing gets done. Drive and ambition are gods to be worshipped and used as a measuring stick of our worth and success.
We are so wrong.
I will get more done if I spend time with God first and most. As an added bonus, it's the most restful, relaxed place I've yet to experience.
As if I was finally in the spot I can call home.
Communing with God is like that, because after all
no one knows you better than the One Who made you.
Won't you start this day with Him?

Absolutely, Beth. Spending time in silence with God is essential. And yet, so often I neglect it and manage to convince myself (or allow myself to be deceived?) that something else is more important. It's not.ReplyDelete
Then, when I finally sit down and spend some time in silence with him, I wonder to myself, what the heck was I thinking? Why didn't I do this sooner?!
