Time for God

“And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him.”
1 John 5:15

2 - Reflect
Time itself is sometimes undervalued, we believe that we can always get back the things we left unfinished. We leave different commitments, appointments and meetings "for later", but we also run the risk of putting aside our time for God. That moment in which we are ready to meditate and think about the things that are happening to us, and in the way we handle ourselves with others. When we do not protect that time of "being" with Our Heavenly Father, we will slowly move further away from our duty as Christians.



Returning to God only when we are in need or in despair is not the right path. Finding a little time to talk with Him, for meditation and devotion, is what will give us peace of mind and keep us close to the Lord. It will let us be focused on our faith, involved in our communities, being in solidarity with others, and listening attentively. When we do not pay enough attention to our path as God's children, we can make mistakes that will not be easy to fix, since we will not have clarity in our thoughts regarding good actions. It is for this reason that even if it is just a few minutes a day we must use them to be silent and contemplate on what we have done throughout our day, what we want on our path, think about how to work with our neighbor.
