1. Diane, thank you for sharing this. We all need reminders that winging it isn’t going to create the prayer habit we want with God. I hope your new business is going well and your routines are how you want them. Blessings, Kevin

  2. We need prayer so much, but rarely make it a priority above everything else, because we don’t see it for the value it is. I know I fall into this trap. Thinking something else is more important right now, and I will get back to prayer when I have time. Now I pray first thing when I wake up. And throughout the day, I send short prayers up when they come to me. Kinda like texting a friend throughout the day. And when someone asks for prayer, I sit down and write a prayer for them and text it to them. Because if I don’t do it then, I forget.

    1. Yes! I love that analogy!! I was just thinking of that this morning…not the text part but about how I have these little chats throughout the day and I envisioned it like a friend who is just there with you all day that you just have those little talks with. I love that about God. He is right there for me to talk to anytime!

  3. Diane,

    Most mornings, I have my time with God first. What gets me skipping it is when I flip on the darn social media and email while I am sipping tea and eating breakfast. Or when I think oh let me first link-up my post and then I will have my time with God. As we know 5 minutes on the computer can easily turn into hours and then it’s time to go somewhere.

    This year, I would love to add a bedtime routine with God.

    I too have found God waiting for me and it brings a slew of tears. Wow, He loves us so much.

    I love the window you have. What a great place to meet God.

    Thank you for sharing with Grace & Truth Link-Up.

    1. Yes! I relate to ALL of what you said. It is so easy to get distracted and yet so hard to focus sometimes isn’t it?

  4. Amen, thank you for this blessed lesson about spending time with God. I love your insights and encouraging words. Blessings.
