Time alone with God is necessary for me as a follower of Jesus. It’s where I get to speak to him and let him speak to me.
Why would that time alone be important to me as a writer? Because God called me to write. I know many people brush that idea aside but I firmly believe that is one of the ways God wants to use me.
When I spend time with God, I begin to understand as he does. It puts us on the same page, so to speak. He directs my thoughts, guides me in what I should write. If I did not spend time quietly listening to him, he could not direct my paths.
While spending time alone with God helps me as a Christian writer, that is only an aside. The important thing about time with God is that he can teach me and guide me to make decisions that will conform you to the image of his Son, Jesus and bring glory to his name. That is his ultimate purpose for my life!
Honored that God is willing to spend time with me, Gloria
