We all know how it feels to be distant from someone we love and to have them stop by unexpected. Yes, indescribable joy. What a refreshing sensation, so sweet we begin to wish it would linger , reclaiming time missed together; perhaps, squandered . . . overlooked busy doing life. Likewise, God wants time with us. We were created by God for relationship (fellowship). Matthew 6:33, reminds us to “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you.”Where have you been? The many sleepless nights, and countless day hours spent chasing your goals?
All of what you are seeking is available for you. Easily attainable, if you consider scheduling time with God the master planner of life.
You can experience a lingering presence of the Spirit of God in “Quiet Time” as you listen to Solveig Leithaug new CD release “TIME” and ignite fresh faith in God’s presence. Listen to her music, as you read your bible, pray and ponder God’s sovereignty.
