I Can’t Find the Time by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/09/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What are the things that keep you from spending time alone with the Lord?

“It seems like something’s always breaking down, or getting spilled, or blowing up around the house.”

Nancy: I once sent a survey to 300 women asking what seemed to hinder their prayer and Bible study. The number one response was:

“I just can’t find the time!”

Nancy: So what do we do? In Colossians 4:2, we read, “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Devoting ourselves includes devoting our time. Some women I know have found it helpful to make an appointment with God and then keep it like any other commitment.

I’ve discovered that if I don’t make a conscious, deliberate effort to set aside time to be with the Lord, other things will always demand my attention. Why don’t you look at tomorrow’s schedule and make an appointment with Him?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
