5. Spend Time with Him
Finally, set aside some focused time to spend with God today. Time together is a crucial component of every relationship. For example, when we have less time to give to our spouse or kids or friends, we feel our relationships with these people start to diminish.
So take some time today to step away from your crazy, busy life, and spend time with your heavenly Father. Dive into His Word. Tell Him what’s happening in your ordinary life—the good, the bad, and the ugly. Listen for His voice. Ask Him where He wants to lead you next.
Spending time with God cultivates the sense that God is intensely interested in what’s going on with you and what you face today. And He surely is! He has promised to “never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5) and longs to be part of your moment-by-moment life—to ease the burdens, provide what you need, and offer His strength for every moment.
As you practice these simple ways to pursue closer relationship with God, may you find the joyful satisfaction of intimacy with a real and present Creator who adores you and can hardly wait to grow in relationship with you.
Janna Wright told her first story—something about kittens and lost mittens—at age two. As an author and speaker she still loves stories, sharing them often in her “biz-nistry,” Grace Thread, and her book, Grace Changes Everything. Janna adores deep talks, the CO mountain air outside her back door, and most of all, helping women of faith enjoy Jesus and the adventure of grace.
