I Prayed

I'm ashamed to admit it, but since I've been in the hospital with Christian I've not been spending time with God.

Yes, I cried out to him when Christian was being poked while trying to place an IV, but I've not spent time with the Lord on a regular basis.

We get into our routines at home (which I can't wait to do again) and the minute we go out of town, or an emergency arises, everything changes.

The time I spend with God daily is important to me. Why don't I continue that regardless of where I am at?

I think a lot of it is that we are truly creatures of habit.

Personally, I thrive on schedules and expectations, but when that world is pulled out from under me, things get difficult.

I prayed this morning and felt peace. I know God is always there, but I want to keep that relationship strong.

Prayer is not simply requests, it's about relationship.

What's your relationship like right now?
