We make time to go to work because we NEED a paycheck. We make time to get/prepare/eat food because we NEED sustenance. We make time to lay down and close our eyes because we NEED rest. The smartest of us even make time to vacation because we NEED to relax relate and release. We see a NEED and we meet it. Spiritually we need to be just as diligent, intentional and routine. Spending time with God regularly has such great rewards. It’s part of feeding our spiritual NEED, and where we find rest spiritually. Before our feet hit the floor, before we check emails, social media, bank accounts (gotta make sure that direct deposit hits!) and send those GM texts, we NEED to spend real time with God. Not quick, run of the mill, drive by prayers. But real quality time. Even if it means setting our clocks earlier, or going to bed earlier…whatever sacrifice you need to make, it will be worth it!
