Time With The Lord, How Long Has It Been?
Spending Quiet Time with The Lord....
Prayer: "My Time"
Forgive me Lord for shutting off my communication with you. Enclosing myself within; to focus on the problems at hand. I know you're there waiting for me, as I try to maintain the pressures of life on my own. Why do I keep busy about nothing, yet everything? Stopped!, I realized...I have neglected our time together.
Asking your forgiveness Lord, looking up...seeking your face! Feeling your warmth of love shine on me? Glowing wanting to soak in more...more of your radiant love, more of your ways for me.
All the time my head was down, you were so patient...as I walked around in circles, intensifying my tasks. An intimate God you are! Only wanting what's best for me? When I see you...I know what to do:) To run and not walk. Now light on my feet, running the race you set before me.
It is my time with you, that is most important! Other monotonous things, will still be there, after our time.
Thank you Lord, for the strength you give me, the love you've shown me. Accepting me, rather than rejecting me. Waiting for me, rather than leaving me.
You are an Awesome God!

Life can get so busy, we forget to set aside time with God?
Just realized this myself the other day, that it had been some time...since I really sat down, read and prayed. I knew something didn't seem quite right, empty? Then it hit me, I hadn't really, truly set aside time with our Lord. Busy about the tasks at hand.
I asked God to forgive me, for neglecting my time with Him. He is so patient with us, most amazing...He craves communication with each and everyone one of His children.
So I thought I would challenge you, to ask the same question of yourselves? We need our quiet time with our Lord, to know His ways for us. Yet also, to take the time to pray for others.
Today, I woke up 3:30 am, words were on my heart! Turned a small light on, put them in the journal. Woke again, writing some more 4:30-5:00am. Decided today, I would set aside some special time with Him:) So I took my journal, a small Bible, a writing pad and a pen. Found a little coffee shop, and sat in a corner...in thought and prayer. Writing again the words on my heart. Continuing the conquest from the start of the morning, to the top of the day! To capture the words, before they slipped away.
What insight I gained, as the day progressed. How blessed I was, to hear a message that tied every thought together. Working out the words and thoughts to paper, what a great transition that was provided for my heart and mind.
Asking more forgiveness later in the day, letting go of hurts that surfaced, and giving them to God. Purposefully submitting them to Him, through prayer and the power of His son. Feeling at peace, released from the unknown hurt, and resentment...I had been harboring. Looking up, I felt the warmth of His Love shower on me today:) What a beautiful day it turned out to be, walking with my Lord and the light of His Word.
I hope you will have a special day, just you and Him...soon! Feel the warmth of His embrace, as you look for His face:) God Bless Your Walk with Him today and everyday!
