Alone Time with God

It seems strange to say alone time with God.  If you are with someone are you alone?  I imagine it means being alone physically so you can hear from Him.  He promises to never leave or forsake us.
So all we have to do is stop what we are doing and focus on His presence.  Lately I have been trying to do that as much as possible.

Have you ever gone somewhere familiar, and yet you feel awkward like you are visiting for the first time.  You don’t know where anything is.  How do you act?  You don’t remember what you do there.  You are not sure when it is time to leave.  Have I overstayed my welcome?

Okay, maybe it is just me… but recently in my time with God that is the way I feel.  I read the word, and it yields nothing.  I desperately want to hear from God through the pages of scripture.  So, I wonder if I am doing something wrong.

I go to a bible study I am currently doing, and then I hear a whisper from Him. I watch a bible study on T.V., and He speaks right to my situation. When I am studying through the works of others I am finding God, but when I just try to get alone with him and His Word.  I read, but hear nothing.

Has that happened to you?  Have you ever found that you can’t get a clear signal with the scripture alone.  Some may say not to limit God.  That He speaks how He wants and when He wants.  I should be thankful that He is speaking into my life.

When the scripture takes on a voice of its own I am never more alive. I live for those encounters.  Maybe I should live for any encounter with God. How about you?  What are your thoughts, Beloved.  Leave a comment with them.  <3 Mindy
