What is holding you back from enjoying spending intimate time with God? Here is my 'usual' with God...
Make your spot inviting. Make your supplies fun. Make some fresh coffee. Sit and enjoy God like maybe you never knew you could. So that is it. That is my usual time with God. But we all know that some days...things happen. Kids throw up. Dogs poop all over the house. Husbands have errands for you to do. Whatever it may be. satan will tell you that if it isn't all 'perfect' then you just can't do it that day. Then the next it will be easier to 'not' do it again. He is sly. He is sneaky. He is deceiving. So what do you do on the days that there is no time for your normal?
Whatever God tells you to. I know that I have sat down to do devotions before...and God told me to write a letter. I hesitated. But you know how it is. When the God over all of the earth, tells you to write to someone and bless them...you should listen. I have also been upset that I couldn't sit down and write before....and while I was driving to wherever it was that I had to go...I would pray. I would sing. And God still used it to bless me. He knows my heart. He knows my intentions. He would hear my cry during my prayers...and He would move my mountain. He would hear my voice singing to Him, and He would give me a new song that He wrote for me to sing. Amazing! He is beyond words. I don't have any that can adequately describe how I feel about Him. But I will still try.
So, keep changing it up. God can work with whatever you have. If you want to read a book by a Christian author...again I highly suggest Max Lucado and Beth Moore...then do that one morning for your alone time. Dive into a passage of the Bible and write what it means to you. Put in a cd and sing your favorite songs to Him. (Dancing is recommended...but optional. Lol!) Do an in-depth Bible study book like the one I have pictured. One that makes you think about passages of scripture and how you can apply it to daily life. One that asks you questions so that you are truely applying your new knowledge. Visit and encourage someone that God is leading you to. These are just suggestions to get your possible narrow-mind thinkin! =)
You don't have to feel so tied down to one particular devotional style that you just skip anything all together if your routine gets messed up. Because then guess who is going to constantly try to 'mess' with your routine? Makes sense right? Have fun with God. He created us in His image...and He is stinkin' awesome!! =)
