That’s how the saying goes, but obviously…there are some exceptions! How about this one? Do you like it? I do. Mike and I picked up Alan at the airport this afternoon, and I must say, it’s great to have Alan join us, if even for just a few days!! Why? Because, even though it’s possible to be apart, it’s hard. True friends can endure being apart, but they really want to spend time together every day if they can, right?God created us for communion, & I hope we feel the same desire to be with Him.Yesterday, Mike and Grace’s pastor read this beautiful quote by Charles Spurgeon: “The morning is the gate of the day, and it should be well guarded with prayer. It is one end of the thread on which the day’s actions are strung, and should be well knotted with devotion. If we felt the majesty of life we should be more careful of its mornings. He who rushes from his bed to his business and waiteth not to worship is as foolish as though he had not put on his clothes, or cleansed his face, and as unwise as though he had dashed into battle without weapons or armor. Be it ours to bathe in the softly flowing river of communion with God, before the heat of the wilderness and the burden of the way begins to oppress.” Is the discipline of devotion difficult in the midst of your frenetic flight thru life? The “written in stone” way to find the guidance and grace we need is through daily communing with our Father: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8). Are you communing daily with God and abiding in the Light?
“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).
