Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Our Time with God

Maureen Pratt Author PicIf you knew that you were going to spend long days with a beloved friend, how would you want to pass the time? What sorts of things would you plan to do? Lots of outings, going to see the sights and eat lots of good food? Or, would you want to stay at home and just have a good talk punctuated by laughter, tears, a memory or two, and that awesome feeling of closeness that comes with a truly blessed relationship?

Now, what if that time were to be spent with God?

Well, actually, it is.

Whether we’re conscious of it, or not, God is with us every moment of the day and night. We take him with us as we move through our routine, go to work, and, yes, see the sights on our time off.

We’re also with God at home, when we’re relaxing or “just being” with others, family or friends.

Like a true friend, God is with us when we’re sick, standing over us, ready to bring comfort. He’s that support, waiting when we wake up from anesthesia. He’s holding us when we’re waiting for the results of tests.

The more conscious I am of this ultimate good friend who never leaves me, the stronger and more positive I feel. I find that I’m less inclined to be distracted, and more apt to be careful about the ways I spend my time and limited energy. And of course,  the more I turn to him throughout the day, the more encouraged I am that I am not alone or foresaken.

How’s that for a great and true friend?

Blessings for the day,

Maureen
