Basking

There are times when I feel rushed in my time with the Lord.  People, tasks, other stuff, pulls at my ability to concentrate on what I am reading.  It is a little hard to believe, but I am more interested in the meaningless than standing before God in His throne room.
Do you, like me, ever feel rushed in your time with God?  Thoughts at DTTB.
This afternoon I was better.  I will not claim to have been completely absorbed, but the majesty of the creator drew me in.  The time was unhurried, calm, I was pulled gently from passage to passage – how that works for me is while reading or thinking through a passage another passage or phrase from that passage comes to mind, I then either turn there or do a quick search for the combination of words that came to mind, usually that leads me to the passage that came to mind…

I do this with my journal open and a set of colored pens with which to capture the thoughts on the blank pages.

It was a rich time.  I have a lot to share from it.  But the direction seemed to be – the thing that I felt compelled to share was encouragement to just bask in His Word.

This is not an instant kind of fix, it takes some time and it takes making a choice not to do other things.  It is well worth the investment of your time.
