Mark 1: 35 And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.
I realized yesterday that although I have my daily reading/blogging habit, I don’t ever have time alone in a day to just be with God.
I wake up and read the bible while I am next to my wife in bed, I carpool with my brother to work as I blog, at work I sit in a lunch room with other coworkers and at home my three kids constantly want attention from Daddy. I never have a quiet isolated moment with God.
Yesterday I needed to refresh from a hard week so I drove myself out to an empty parking lot to listen to workship music for an hour and it was a wonderful experience. I gained peace, joy and hope from that time.
The one area I don’t have the focus to follow Christ it seems is His prayer habits. Its hard for me to sit anywhere for extended periods of time not reading, writing or listening to something.
I pray as I work or do other activities throughout the day, but I wonder if I set aside enough time to listen to God.
