It’s so easy to start thinking that what we do for God is our relationship with God.
But no, we have to spend time in his presence.
Think of it this way: how would we every build a marriage or a friendship if we just ran around doing things for that person and never took time to sit down, talk, and enjoy their company?
When I first began this journey with the Lord, I sat in the same bedside chair every day to pray and read my Bible. I painted a watercolor of the scene to document that space that had become so precious to me. I only lived in that apartment less than two years and this chair is now long gone, but I have this painting to remind me of how and where I started with the Lord.
If you don’t have a sacred space in your home to spend time with God, today’s a good day to choose one. Find fresh strength in His presence.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
