Today, I am experiencing what many people go through on a Monday morning – a choice. My mental review of Sunday included a challenge to change. My prayer life can remain as it is or it can be raised up a notch. Nothing will change unless I intentionally do something different that I have been doing.
Just like growing deeper in a relationship, whether the relationship is with a friend, family member, co-worker, or a spouse, it requires an investment of time and truth. When you increase your time conversing and listening with a person, you will grow deeper in that relationship. When your exchange with one another is based on the foundation of personal truthfulness which goes beyond the safe topics of sports and weather, your relationship will grow deeper.
We will have the same vibrant growth in our relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit when our time and truth increases with Him.
So the Monday morning choice you and I have is whether we will intentionally make some changes to increase our time and truth with God. The challenge given on Sunday was to trade 30 minutes of TV, Facebook or computer time for 30 minutes of prayer time with God. Let’s go for it!
