Ok...so in a sense I miss the discipline of Lent...sounds funny, huh? Well, during lent I was incredibly more dedicated to spend deliberate time every day with God. Lately, I've gotten busy with life. Looking at my postings lately I can see a trend of needing to pray!
Anyway, I turned everything off yesterday and opened the window and watched it rain from the silence of my house. I felt the cold breeze on my face and the warmth of the blanket wrapped around me. I just was. And when it was over I was refreshed. I also realized how out of sync life is and how I haven't been centering in on God nearly as easily.
So, I scheduled a date with God! Yep, I'm taking part of a day next week as my God time. I know, retreats are popular and all of that, but life is busy so I'm making a date! It's kinda like imitating Jesus going up on the mountain top ot pray...yeah, just like that I hope.
So, can you date God? Yep, can you set a large amount of time aside to be in God's presence?
