Time for Him

Recently I heard the phrase “I wish there was more time in each day so I could catch up”.  It got me thinking about how we use our time, and manage our day.

It seems we can always find time for the things we enjoy and find pleasure in. How many of us check our Facebook account or surf the internet each day, and yet spend little or no time in God’s Word? 

There are so many things that distract us and our relationship with the Lord. Think about the people who matter most to you. Deep relationships are not formed by merely thinking about it or intending to spend time with people. Relationships grow by purposely spending time together and sharing. 

It is not different with our spiritual relationship. We need to make time for growing a deeper relationship with God. He knows all that is happening, but wants to hear from us and have us hear from Him. He tells us in His Word to “be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)

Sometimes, we need to turn off the distractions and be still.

What are your distractions? Laptop, internet, cell phones, sports, television, music, etc.  Let’s make it a priority to today and every day “to be still.”
