Tick-tock Tick-Tock

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24) 
The older I get, the faster time seems to tick away. I often find myself thinking there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything finished. Our culture seems to idolize busyness and measures success on how many events you can cram into your calendar.
I used to be so busy that the only way I could establish a boundary with work was by putting at least 100 miles between my desk and me. I decided to commit to a spiritual retreat each year just to rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect to my Heavenly Father. And then, slowly, God impressed on my heart that I don’t need to travel out of state to reconnect. I can have a little retreat with Him every morning through my quiet time.
The enemy will tell you there isn’t enough time for God. The enemy will try and steal the joy that comes from those few minutes with God each morning.
The truth is when you take those first few minutes to spend with God, your entire day will be blessed…you lose nothing, and gain everything!!
I love this devotion! It blessed me. What truth! I pray you are encouraged to have a little retreat with Him every morning, why, because like today’s devotion says, “you lose nothing and gain everything”. One of the best gifts we can give ourselves is time alone with God because time spent alone with God is never wasted. Spending time with God puts everything else in perspective.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
