Are you really spending quiet time with God?
I write a lot about having a personal relationship and spending quiet time with God. A dear friend sent me this over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you (she wasn’t sure of the original author).
The structure is so important to your relationship with God. I was excited to see that I’ve already incorporated most of the steps into my daily walk with Christ and there were some new things I can add. Even when I get off course, action steps like these help me to rebound faster and get back to what’s important.
I hope you find value in these steps and begin to incorporate them into your daily walk with Christ.
May Your Steps Fulfill Their Purpose.
