Sometimes even the things I love seem to take a back seat to tasks that press for my immediate response.
I think God is the same, waiting patiently for me to turn my notice to Him. Life pushes and shoves for my interest with worldly pursuits – work demands, appointments beeping from the alarm on my phone, my neighbour needing help, and on and on it goes.
Serious one on one time cannot be compared, the garden needs it and more importantly I need it - God time that is. If I neglect it, I end up looking like my garden, all weedy and overgrown with menaces that choke out the new growth.
It is all about prioritising. There will always be things on my list to do and I will need to do them, but I can choose to make time for those important tasks that I want to give my time to - God, my family and friends, my garden.
The washing is urgent yes, but God is important…in the garden with God wearing a dirty shirt…works for me!
