Spend a Minute with God


God is calling us to a life of constant communion with Him.  He is teaching us to learn to live above our circumstances.  We long for a simplified lifestyle so that our communication with Him is uninterrupted.  But He is challenging us to  relinquish the fantasy of an uncluttered world.  Accept each day just as it comes, and find Him in the midst of it all.

He says...

Talk with Me about every aspect of your day, including your feelings.  Remember that your ultimate goal is not to control or fix everything around you; it is to keep communing with Me.  A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me, even if many things remain undone at the end of the day.  Do not let your to-do-list (written or mental) become an idol directing your life.  Instead, ask My Spirit to guide you moment by moment.  He will keep you close to me.

1 Thessalonians 5:17; Proverbs 3:6; Galatians 5:25
