My schedule is very busy at times and it can be difficult for me to nurture all of the relationships I have with friends, family and loved ones.  I don’t always have the time to spend an hour on the phone with my parents and sometimes don’t get together with my friends for weeks.  One way I keep in touch with them, however, is through short little updates throughout the day – a text here, an email there or perhaps a quick comment on their facebook page.

In our relationship with God, there are moments when we may not have time to “pick up the phone” and spend an hour in conversation with God. What we can do is keep the connection alive throughout the day with little updates here and there – this certainly goes a long way in nourishing this most important relationship we have with our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

If you have a moment to send a friend a text, check your facebook page or send a quick email, you certainly have time to spend a moment with God.  A lot of little moments can add up to a deeply connected relationship – perhaps these little moments are what Paul was talking about in 1 Thessalonians 5 when he wrote “Pray without ceasing.”

May your days be filled with many little moments.
