Jesus is a friend for life who never changes in His love for you. Whether you speak to Him of your joys or your concerns, He is always listening.
Are your Scrabble on-line friends all busy?
Get the old board game down from the top of the closet and play a game with your family. The kids will love it.
Are you tired of reading recipes on Pinterest?
Bake a cake and invite a neighbor to share a piece, warm from the oven, with a cup of coffee and some friendly conversation. Talk to her about your Friend who always cares.
Is your e-mail filled only with spam?
Write a newsy letter to a faraway friend or a note of appreciation to someone who serves quietly in your church to send by “snail mail.”
Did your computer just suddenly stop working?
“Scroll” through the Psalms and read some of your favorite verses. Grab pen and paper to write your own poem of praise to the Lord.
Is there nothing of interest to watch on TV?
Take a long walk and fill your mind with the images of the beauty God has created and consider all your blessings. Lose yourself in the pages of a good book.
Did you get an unkind text message or lose connection while talking on your smart phone? There is ever an open line with never a broken connection when you pray to God—the One who is good all the time.
Even if you have no problems with any of your technical devices, you can choose to disconnect from them to spend time reconnecting with God and nature and family. Free yourself for quiet times of reflection and for making yourself available to serving others in His name.
