For a long time I've struggled with personal quiet time and I can tell you that nothing substitutes for it. Not reading a Christian book or doing your weekly bible study lesson, or listening to a televangelists broadcast or going to church on Sunday. Nothing can substitute for the time you spend alone with God. Nothing can change you like a personal intimate relationship with our Creator.
Have you been missing out on your relationship with the Lord? Have you forgotten to take time every day to just sit and talk with Him? Are you running around serving, giving, and doing "Christian" things mistakenly thinking that your gifts are what God really wants from you? Are you too busy acting Christian or really being a Christian?
"...ask where the good way is, walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jerm 6:16
"Dear Heavenly Father, draw me each day to spend time with you. Let me never forget that my works are just empty packages and what you really want is to be with me. And dear Lord, for my sisters that struggle in this area teach them to slow down and walk with you ask well." AMEN!
