Spending Time With God

FINDING QUIET TIME TO SPEND WITH THE LORD
Communication is a vitally important ingredient in keeping any love relationship alive. I've found that if I don't spend time everyday talking with my wife, I won't know what she has been doing, thinking, or feeling. Because I love her I want to know what is on her heart. And when I share my thoughts and feelings with my wife, I sense a genuine bonding with her.
We need to apply this principle to our love relationship with God. We should set aside a time everyday to meet with the Lord. Through speaking to Him in prayer, and listening to Him, we can enjoy an honest, open, two-way communication that will cause a glorious bonding of our spirits.
You probably agree that you need to spend time with the Lord, but still you may be thinking, "I am just so busy. I don't see how I can find the time." But please consider this thought with me for a moment. When a single person finds someone that they really fall in love with, they are always able to find time, or make the time, to spend with that person. And if you are really in love with the Lord, you will make time to spend with Him.
