For our weekly wisdom provided by Christnotes, it is:
“Time is the price you must pay for intimacy with God.”
Ouch! Guilty as charged.
I admit. I admit. I don’t make time for our devotion. And most of the time, I don’t have time.
I always feel so tired coming from work. Possible that it’s because the stress of commuting 2 hrs from work, just to go home or it could be that I’m not fit enough to have the extra strength needed for quality time with my family and quality time with my God.
Reserve a specific slot each day to spend time with God. Don’t do anything else
during that time; make it your time specifically for you and God. You can’t use
the excuse, “I’ll read my Bible and spend time with God, as soon as I can find
some time.” You will never find time! You must make time. Therefore, reserve
time for God, remembering that time is the price you must pay for intimacy with
I got to make this a habit. Now when will I do that? Let’s see, this is my scenario, I got up early everyday, around 3:00am for my 5:00am shift. Most of the time, I am not even awake while I’m preparing to go to work. So I doubt, morning sessions will be effective. It’s either during work time, now this depends if I can have couple of minutes alone. I can take my two 15-min break to do devotion. Right? I can do that. But the problem is I could not make it like with a specific time everyday, simply because I am at work.
Well, if I just wanted to do read and not write, I could do this while I’m on the bus. Since I spend almost 2hrs everyday commuting, might as well read the bible right? That would be way too cool.
But the most ideal is when I get home, I can do my devotion during Asian Treasure (GMA-7) because all of the people would not bother since they’re busy watching…hehehe. That I think would work. It’s not too late for me to get sleepy and it’s not too early for me to be bothered. Way to go then.
I will have time for him. I will make time.
