Doesn’t it thrill you when someone whose friendship you enjoy invites you to spend time together?
Personally, I love it when my husband says, “Come, sit beside me for a bit, okay? Let’s talk.” I totally enjoy it when my kids ask to Facetime. Nothing beats being together with the special people in one’s life.
Every day I sense God asking me to sit with Him for a little while. Sometimes He speaks to me through a sermon or a song or someone else’s quotes, but the way He communicates with me early each morning is different. His voice comes as a craving in my soul, a yearning to connect with my Creator, the sense that I’ll be trying to function in a void unless I feed that desire with what it seeks.
My flawed humanity says I don’t have time. “Get real, Grace. Look at the length of your to-do list. You’d best get on with your day if you hope to tackle your tasks.”
But my heart says otherwise: “Time with Jesus matters more than anything. Keep first things first. Give Him priority and He’ll give you His perspective for anything that comes your way today.”
The psalmist penned it well when he wrote, “My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’ And my heart responds, ‘LORD, I am coming’” (Psalm 27:8 NLT).
God speaks to us by placing within our hearts a spiritual hunger only He can satisfy. Have you felt that craving? Have you sensed that yearning for soul satisfaction? That’s God speaking to you, my friend. How will you respond?
