Spending Time with the LORD

I thought of the story of Mary and her sister Martha in which Mary was sitting at the foot of Jesus listening to Him. It then came to me…The significance of the story…It was the time that Mary spent with the LORD. Spending her time with the LORD was important, not the preparation in the kitchen or the meal. I then understood that GOD loves spending our time with Him on a daily, hourly basis. It is what the LORD wants from us. I finally got it, I finally understood. And what is it like spending time on a daily, hourly basis with the LORD? It is an awesome feeling; most of the time peaceful and a joy with blissful moments out of this world. I am beginning to understand what pleases the LORD…

Waking up in the morning with the LORD on my mind, Blessing the LORD or thanking Him for another day of life. Asking and praying for His guidance and help in setting my priorities for the day.  Reading the Bible first thing after getting up. Spending time in Prayer in the morning and before bedtime. Spending the day with the LORD around the house, in the car, in the grocery stores; constantly in conversation with Him. It is an awesome way of being with the LORD at all times.

Does God speak to me? Of course. No, not verbally but He speaks. God always shows me what I need to know. As time goes by, the more time I spend with the LORD, the more I understand His Loving character and His Will.  So, yes, God is with us 24/7.  God wants to spend time with us because He loves us.
