We Should NEVER Take A Vacation From God
Once again, we are entering the time of the year for change. For many, summer no longer means rest for us and our families; there is an abundance of ball games, camps, and other activities – not to mention family vacations.
But for most, summer is still time for a change of pace. It’s a time to break out of the routine and do something different with our time, our energy and our resources. A change of routine is good; otherwise we get stuck in a rut.
The different perspective that summer brings is good for us not only physically and psychologically, but spiritually as well. Too much of the “same old same old” can put us in a spiritual rut, where our prayer becomes dry and we can get the idea that God no longer wants to speak to us through our prayer.
God is always there, even when he seems to be absent in prayer, but a change of pace can help us to recognize and hear God’s voice more clearly. As you know, prayer is not just talking to God. It is also listening to God in our hearts. God wants to tell us each day how much he loves us. It is only from a place of knowing God’s personal love for us that we can then love and serve God and others.
