This season of Lent has me pondering many things. I have left quite a few things get over run by life and busy activity.
It’s been a while. I let life crowd out this time I spent with Jesus. The noise and responsibilities and focus overtook my time and energy until I noticed I wasn’t spending time thinking about God or talking to Him unless there was some 5 Alarm Emergency.
I know I’m not alone.
…. WHY DO WE DO THIS?
Tapping into and believing for “impossible things” becomes a WHOLE LOT EASIER when you realize we have God, who delights in meeting us in the middle of it all.
Our Thursday evening Life Group is reading and discussing a book on prayer and I have to say…its been the best thing ever. It’s been such a great encouragement to be drawn back into a focused and deliberate time of meditation, discussion and listening to HIS perspective and HIS desires for situations.
Magic Wand? no.
Automatic Genie in a Bottle? no.
But unexplainable assurance and peace in the middle of a stressful time?…yes. and that alone is worth carving out a few minutes a day to keep that connection going strong.
