Hey, I know you...
I know I am really streaky when it comes to coming online and my computer crashed so I borrow my daughter's laptop when I can.
Our church is having a special 3 week early morning prayer service from the last week of Dec leading into the first 2 weeks of the new year. One thing I desire is to pray more consistently so this has been a good thing.
I was praying one morning and going through the list of prayer requests in my head and I realized that I want to spend time with God not be just a requester to God. I just stopped praying and was still, thinking about God and just who He is. I had a flashback of earlier in the week when my husband saw us in the neighborhood and said to our 3 yr old "Hey, I know you" and she ran into his arms, she belonged there. I was wondering if God was showing me that, that "Hey, I know you" and He knows my name and I belong in His embrace.... I was happy to feel like I belong there in that quiet time, not like a presentor of a long list of things I need to bring up with God.
I don't know, how do you ladies keep the joy of our relationship with God real during prayer or quiet times? I want more of that.
