I think it can be really difficult to spend time with God. To find the time. To sit down and be still and quiet. Different people say they find different ways make it easier - maybe being on the treadmill, on a walk, with pen and paper in hand.
But I know for myself that although every possible excuse might present itself, in the end, there is no substitute for coming before God. Just me. Just as I am. There are usually lots of other things I could be doing that if I'm honest seem less boring. But I know I need to come. And if I do, I realise there is actually nothing more interesting or life giving.
Why not take some time today, away from the distractions, to draw near, to know that you are loved.
NOW LISTEN, DAUGHTER, DON'T MISS A WORD:
FORGET YOUR COUNTRY, PUT YOUR HOME BEHIND YOU.
BE HERE - THE KING IS WILD FOR YOU.
SINCE HE'S YOUR LORD, ADORE HIM.
PSALM 45:10-12 MSG
