Being intentional about time with God by Harrison Bellve for Christian Today
I am in a very unique and special place in my life right now. A place of being rather free, halfway across the world with no commitments, be it of the relationship, work, or any other kind.
I am not grounded in any particular place. In fact, I am so uprooted that I have literally no idea where I am going next.
Naturally, this can sometimes make me feel a bit stressed and bring moments of anxiousness. Constantly living with a sense of uncertainty can certainly get tiring. However, it’s in this place that I am the closest to God.
Intentional time with God
I wake up physically alone, but spiritually with Him each and every day.
As the sun rises, He greets me in my apartment within a city of which I can’t read or understand a single word around me.
I don’t have my friends, family, security or comforts – but I have Him. I don’t head to school or work, but rather I stride into endless opportunities to intentionally walk with Him.
Each day is unplanned, yet He leads. Each day is quiet, and He speaks. I have an abundance of time and a lack of disractions to intercept it.
It’s in this blessed season where He’s made so clear to me the importance of how we position ourselves to hear Him.
Positioning ourselves to hear
I have previously written about truly believing that God is always speaking to us. And while this may render to you as an obvious statement, for many Christians it doesn’t.
Yet He truly does, in so many different ways from which He chooses with perfect purpose. Sometimes He is so bold we can’t block it, and other times He speaks so intricately we must block out to hear it.
