Let me never be too busy
to spend quality time with You, Father. I can tell it’s been awhile,
when I hesitate to go to Your throne room. I am sorry Lord. Holy Spirit,
thank You for reminding me and convicting me. Being with You is always a
time of refreshment!
Some time ago there was that song ‘Cats In The Cradle’ of the little boy and his dad and every time the boy wanted the dad to play with him the dad was always too busy. When the boy grew up the roles reversed and the boy was too busy to pay attention to the dad. “... we’ll have a good time then son.” But “then” never really came. . .
When you comin' home dad?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then
I know Lord, You are a loving Father and will never be too busy for me; You gave Your Son for me. The depth of that love is incredible Father, I’ll never deserve it; but You love me deeply, because I am Your child. I recognize and am so thankful for what Jesus did for me, and I have invited Him into my heart and choose to serve Him as the Lord of Lords.
Father, I set aside time for You almost every day, but then distractions and other work invade the space and my mind takes off in different pursuits. And our one-on-one time gets eaten up. Today I focus on You and hear You say, “Be still and know that I am God.” What use to be easy has become difficult . . . “be still”. I was still for a bit then around the edges of my space of stillness crept busy little critters in frenzied momentum calling to me about all that needs to be accomplished today. It eats my stillness space. “Lord help me focus on You, give me a Scripture to study, something to do for You.” Perhaps that’s the problem~I always need to be DO-ING something. I need help Holy Spirit. Help me to quiet my mind and return to that place of peace.
Do you have trouble being 'still'?
