A 365 Days Challenge Day #8
Celebrating God’s Presence
Suppose you had the opportunity to sit down with Jesus Christ in the flesh and talk with Him about anything you wanted to talk about. You could ask Him any questions, discuss any topic, share any stories, consider any plans, laugh at any jokes for as long as you wanted. What kind of time limit would you want to have imposed on that meeting?
Being free to take time to celebrate God’s presence is a wonderful privilege. Some people can afford to spend an hour or longer in prayer each day. Some cannot. But praying a longer rather than short time doesn’t make God love you anymore. God is more interested in you than He is in the clock.
He likes being with you, going to work or school with you, and joining you as you carry out your daily activities__ whether that is mopping floors, planning budgets, or reading stories to children. In the sense that God is always present, we can always be praying, whether our lips are moving or not.
Lord God, this is how I feel about spending time with you…
For the past 8 days, I’ve been doing this challenge ” Come away with me.” I’ve been feeling like I’m so close to God. When I wake up in the morning I wake with the urge to start my devoting, and I can hardly wait for night time to come so I can get started, because that’s the time when I set aside for my daily devotion. So How do I feel? Exited, great. Although physically I feel like crap emotionally and spiritually I feel great.
