Too many times I have heard it said that “If you are too busy to spend time with God, then you are just plain too busy. Slow down.
God reminds us through His Word that He just wants to walk by you side being close. He wants an intimate relationship with each of us.
In today’s devotion of Quiet Times with God, we are reminded of the intimacy we should have with God. Normally when we think of intimacy, we think of the husband and wife bedroom scene, but intimacy is so much more than that. You can be intimate with someone from across the room. Webster define intimacy as something of a personal or private nature. I think it is knowing someone so well that you can speak volumes with them without saying a single word or making a single sound.
“Each of us can be as close to God as we want to be; it all depends on how much time we are willing to put into developing our relationship with Him.” Quiet Times With God, Joyce Meyer
Developing any type of relationship with a person or animal requires time. You are not allowed to be too busy or it just wont work. If we think our relationship with Jesus is not that important, we would be the losers of the equation, for…
Spending time with Jesus is probably the single most important relationship you could ever have. That makes it personal then it fills us with the assurance of His love.
So I remind you of God’s individual love for each of us. It is always available if we just SLOW down enough to enjoy its benefits. And as you do, remember one of the attributes of this love is kindness. Kindness is something that can be shared with man or beast and has the potential to send out roots of kindness out to others in distant places.
Always Be Kind

So true and so easy to get that busy.
Great post and I relate to it. This week, I was very busy. I was getting ready for church and hardly had the energy. I just sat still with Jesus 10 minutes, completely still and it was very rejuvenating. I missed my best friend. 😍
