Too often, I've seen my quiet time as something to be gotten through.
Something to check off my list (I'm an avid list maker). And this morning I was kicking myself for not having gotten up earlier and had my quiet time so it'd be out of the way.
When I heard that phrase bounce through my mind, I stopped. Out of the way?
Is God something to cross off my list? I realized that I view my quiet time too often as a chore and not as relational time with my God.
I want my quiet time to be first thing in the morning, not so I can feel better that it's one less thing I'll have to get to later, but because I don't want to spend one moment of my day without Him.
And that's one thing I've learned over the last week or so, is that I can't survive without Him.
