This month, the TV-44 Spiritual workout involves spending time with God and so prayer and solitude has been on my mind. Sometimes, I struggle to be still with God. I am either going somewhere or planning to go somewhere and I just don’t stop. I try and make the most of every moment which can be really good in many cases, but when it limits time being still with God, it is a negative. How quickly do I forget the very basics of our faith. Colossians 4:2 gives such a beautiful picture of how to live life with God. Three words jump out at me.
Am I devoted to prayer or do I just pray when people ask?
Am I alert when I am praying or do I drift?
Am I thankful or am I pleading and demanding?
I hope this verse encourages your conversation with God as much as it is encouraging me.
