He is not a Hobby


"Many of us have merely added Christ to our lives as another interest in an already busy and otherwise overcrowded schedule."
- By Patrick Morley from Devotions for the Man in the Mirror

Ouch, that hurts. That hits home. As we grow in our faith, we remain vulnerable to slotting God conveniently into our schedule. I find myself doing that all the time. While I encourage everyone to set aside time daily for reading the Bible and personal reflection, we must eliminate the on/off switch.

Since God is with us all the time, we should strive to be with Him all the time.

I started doing something new this week. When I wake up I immediately go to God in prayer. At the end, I simply pray this: God, time for me to get up. I need to get going, but I'm not going without you. You ready to go?

Run in Peace, Rest in Grace

  1. Randy--I'm running a marathon this weekend, and I'm taking God with me. I'm going to try to use the first 13 or 14 miles to pray and reflect and then at mile 15 or 16, I'm going to turn on my MP3. I've just downloaded a bunch of Steve Fee, David Crowder Band, and Switchfoot. But I'm gonna borrow your prayer at the starting line!
