Yesterday when I got home from work my little boy was at my mom's house and came home just in time to go directly into the bed.
Today when I got home from work my little boy's dad was at the house to play. His dad went home tonight right before it was time for him to go to bed.
I know it may seem ridiculous, but I am used to spending every evening with my son and I am missing him. We have great one-on-one time each evening and my evenings aren't the same without that.
It occurred to me that God must feel the same when I am not spending time with him on a regular basis. I imagine him sitting around during my usual prayer time waiting and wondering when I am going to arrive and being disappointed when I don't.
God, thank You for always making time for me regardless if I am making time for you. Help me to remember that You are always there waiting and are disappointed when I don't make our one-on-one time a priority. I know that our relationship cannot continue to develop without one-on-one time. Thank you for the gift of the opportunity of daily time with You.
