We are too busy! God desires that we spend time to get to know Him each day. We all are given the same 24 hours. How are you using the time that is given? All relationships are developed by the time spent with the other person. It’s about time that we put our priorities in order. Choose to make Him your priority. He is waiting…
“My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water” (Jeremiah 2:13 NIV)
Forgive me for choosing others before you to include my own selfish priorities. Father, I have been so busy that I have neglected to seek your face and wait for your voice. In my attempt to get through my day I have chosen to forsake you and lean on my own strength. I’m here now Lord…crying out to you because I cannot make it without you…and I don’t want to be where you are not. I’m ready to listen Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
