There are SO many ways to make a good thing better.
And it’s the same with your time with God.
We know it makes us feel better when we get to have that time (FINALLY on some days, like we beat the odds to even get those moments), but why not make it even more enticing?
Get COMFORTABLE! Recline in your favorite chair, curl up in a window seat, throw a quilt over the porch swing or just prop up in bed.
If you don’t have a favorite beverage mug…GET ONE! Something beautiful or wild and quirky that you can claim as your own.
Get a Bible that you love…one with room in the margins to make notes. Have plenty of fun pens and colorful highlighters that you can use to write directly in your bible.
(Yes, it’s okay to write in your Bible. Stop treating it like a “holy relic”.)
And splurge on a notebook or journal that just makes you smile on the inside and keep it handy.
Read a chapter in your Bible. HIGHLIGHT, CIRCLE and RESEARCH anything you don’t understand. (Google is your friend!) Write in your journal about the things that are impressed on your heart or are new concepts to you.
SING SONGS! God loves your little off-key voice!
PRAY with your mouth. LISTEN with your ears. WRITE down anything you think you hear in your spirit.
Read your HI GOD Devotional, OUT LOUD. (shameless plug, why not – it will help take your Hi God time to another level)
Setting aside time to hear from the Creator of the Universe is the most important thing we can do to live a SUCCESSFUL life.
Don’t feel guilty about getting away from the spouse and kids for a few minutes. Make your time SPECIAL and enjoy it!
It’s FUN to talk to God!
“Lord, in the morning you hear my voice. In the morning I pray to you. I wait for you in hope.” Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
