I’ve started trying to spend quality time each day with God. It’s an ongoing struggle for me and I think I may have figured out why. See, I keep trying to do things like read daily devotions. But they quickly frustrate me because, let’s be honest, you can cram your relationship with the Creator, Savior, and Comforter into a thirty-second sound bite.

It’s ironic to me since I’ve often written devotions. I also love to read. But reading a devotion does next to nothing for me spiritually. Actually, I find reading fiction is often more of a faith boosting practice. God grabs my attention through themes and phrases. I also get more from just reading the Word of God.

So I think I will stick with that. Right now I’m in the Gospel of Mark, and I’m also in the middle of Little Women (for probably the 20th time, but the first time in probably ten years). And I recently read the Divergent trilogy which I HIGHLY recommend. Lots of spiritual themes to chew on.

But mostly I’m trying to carve out time to sit and listen, and maybe write more. When I write I pray. It’s how my mind works. So I think I will keep doing it as much as I can.

Can’t wait to see some amazing women tomorrow. Blessed to be on this PLI journey.
