Are you spending time alone with God?

I enjoy reading. I love to read. Going here in Hungary for the prenatal check-up  is a good thing to do as usually I need to wait for a long time even if I have an appointment. On average I am at the doctor office for 2 ½ hours. I found a book that I didn’t read yet  by Richard Burr “Developing your secret closet of prayer”. It is a great book and if you didn’t read it yet I will encourage you to do it. I will not told you everything that is written there but for me was a great reminder of the importance of spending time alone with God in prayer. I love to pray with Dennis or as the need arise but I need to go alone and dedicate a certain time to be with my Father to talk to Him and to listen to Him all by myself. I will just give you two quotes that stir me up. One is from William Temple the former Archbishop of Canterbury and tell you more about the benefits of spending time with God.
“To worship is:
To quicken the conscience by the holiness of God
To feed the mind with the truth of God
To purge the imagination by the beauty of God
To open the heart to the love of God and
To devote the will to the purpose of God.”

“Where there is no remembrance of past mercies and no consideration of present blessings, there will be the certainty of future rebellion!”

So let’s go and spend every day time alone with our heavenly Father so our hearts will not forget all His benefits!
