Quality Time

“We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.”  Charles Stanley

Spending time with God and family are very important things on my check list in life. I will check it off as often as possible.

This weekend, my family and I went out to Galveston, where we fished, enjoyed lunch, and drove from one end to the other. Our niece, her husband, and kids joined us for a bit of it. It was simple fun and a great day.

Spending quality time with our family is something my husband and I truly value. Taking advantage of such moments together is important to us.

Equally important is our time with God, which we also prioritize. In Psalm 46:10, it says, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth!”

While we were sitting at the beach, I savored all of God’s work and cherished moments with Him throughout the day. Simply being still with the Lord in His creation is one of my favorite things. It serves as a reminder of His power and the fact that He created all of this, yet still cares for me deeply. He desires for me to experience His love in every aspect of life.

Yesterday, I had to go donate some items to a store, so my boys and I went. After dropping everything off, we leisurely explored town, visiting different places and having lunch. My 14-year-old said, “I don’t remember the last time we went somewhere with just you, Mom.” That warmed my heart because they noticed and wanted to spend time with me.

Later, when we returned home, my daughter wanted to spend all the time she could with me. We ended up playing a board game and just hanging out.

It opened my eyes to how important it is, amidst life's busyness, that even as my kids grow older, they still crave time with my husband and me.

When we view God as our Father, we encounter His essence, and we reach a point where all we desire is to spend time with Him, soaking up all we can.

In Joshua 1:8, it says, "Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do."

Spending quality time with God is how we come to understand His character and desire to draw nearer to Him.

God created Eve for Adam because He saw that, despite everything being made, Adam needed someone like him. He needed a companion who could walk alongside him and assist him in life. While God was there guiding, having someone else physically present to accompany us is also essential.

Genesis 2:18-23 states, "Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.' So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still, there was no helper just right for him. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. 'At last!' the man exclaimed. 'This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”

Quality time is crucial in various ways, and people naturally seek companionship with one another. This is how God created us. We need God, and apart from Him, we can do nothing, but we also require meaningful relationships with others.
