I’m thinking of writing a book. The title would probably be How to Drift Away from God, Ten Easy Steps to Living Life on Your Own. Just kidding. But that’s what I’ve been doing lately and I just have to admit it.
Recently my “quiet times” in the morning have felt a little unsatisfying. Sometimes I pray through my requests, read a Psalm or a devotional, sit still and invite God to be with me for…maybe 30 seconds…then I check that box and move on with my day.
Lent begins next Wednesday and is a season of preparation and reflection that is celebrated by many Christian faiths. It is a 40-day period (not including Sundays) leading up to Easter for us to reflect on Christ and His ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.
