Jesus, advised us that we should be seeking “alone time” with the Father on a regular basis (Matt 6:6). Given our often hectic lives, we tend to overlook our desperate and overwhelming need to commune with God on a consistent basis. it’s hard to justify not carving out time for the Sovereign Creator Lord of the Universe. When we stop and realize that 15 minutes is merely 1% of the day that He has granted us, it should motivate us, Perhaps we can set the alarm a little earlier? Maybe turn off the TV for a short time in the evening? Maybe fast thru lunch and read your bible? One way or another, you can make the time.
