Got Time?

By Michelle Adams

“…for I the Lord your God, am a jealous God…”
Exodus 20:5 (NIV)

OK, fess up! Do you make time for God? Do you squeeze in a few minutes to read your Bible every day? Or, are you too busy watching “Jonas” and “iCarly” to spend time with God?

I know. I know. You’re super busy. You have school all day. Then, you always have at least an hour of homework. And, let’s not even go into all of the extracurricular activities that eat up your time! Plus, you have church, friends, chores, pets…the list goes on! There just aren’t enough minutes in a day, right? I am right there with you! I have trouble finding time for God, too. It seems there are a million things that need my attention, and sometimes, I put off my “God time” until the end of the day, and then I’m too tired to pray or read His Word. Sound familiar?

But, you know what? We need to put God first. I’ll let you in on a little secret. If you put God first, He will increase your time. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true! Whenever I take time for God, I somehow supernaturally get everything else on my “To Do List” done! It’s nothing short of a miracle! God will do the same for you. Make a decision today that you’ll spend time with your Heavenly Father—no matter what! Pretty soon, your God time will become your favorite time. You’ll look forward to it—even more than “iCarly.” J

EXTRA STUFF: Psalm 119:97 says: “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.” We should love God’s Word more than anything else! So, dig in! It’s good stuff!

GOD TALK: “God, help me to find more time to spend with You each day. And, help me to love Your Word as much as You do. Amen.”
