#timewithGod

Updated: Jun 29, 2018


After a wonderful month of travel, this picture brings so much joy to my heart. In the month of May I sat in my office for my #timewithGod only 8 mornings! I take my bible, and devotionals with me when I travel - but it is not the same. There are new routines, distractions, schedule changes. I have my time, but it is condensed, interrupted and at best a "check in." The time I spend with God when I am home is saturated. Special. And deep.


This has not always been the case. Just ten months ago, my quiet time was a mere check off my to do list. A short reading, a bible verse and a prayer. It was sincere, but shallow. The one word that describes the change: INTENTIONAL! My quiet time became #timewithGod when I got intentional about my purpose for that time. When it changed from obligation to desire.


Adrian Rodgers once wrote:

God values the time you spend with Him. far more than the things you do for Him.

God not only loves you, but wants you to bask in that love. I am reminded of a song by Jenn Johnson that I love. This song centers me in my purpose. We can ask what all we can do for God all day long, but in the end he truly just wants our time. The tasks come from our time spent with Him.


As you read the lyrics below, or listen to the song, focus on God's answer to her hearts cry. Ask yourself if God is saying this to you, and if so - how are you responding to Him?


A Little Longer
