I knew what he was saying would help strengthen a muscle I had...

5 Simple Steps to Spending More Time with God

As believers, we know how important it is to spend time with God. In fact, most of us would probably say that our relationship with Him is a top priority in our life. But how does that look on a day-to-day basis? It's easy to say God is a priority - it's a whole different thing to live it out.  Have you ever found yourself thinking, “I really need to spend more time with God” but can never seem to find it? Or maybe you have a strong morning routine and a great devotional, but you find yourself slipping right into the busyness of your day, forgetting to be present with God except for those sacred morning mornings. Or maybe you're...
