Devotionals are a way to connect with our faith in the middle of our hectic lives.
We have many good intentions to study through our Bibles, spend hours of prayer in communion with our Lord, and to take notes from where the Spirit leads us. I very much encourage you to do this in a regular basis. However, I would be lying to you if I told you that this is the only means that I find quiet time in my faith and that I dedicate at least an hour every day to this. I don’t, and I would say that most other people don’t as well. Not that we don’t want to or even have time restraints. We just are a distracted people with distracted attitudes.
Devotionals are short, to the point, relational and very often Spirit-led. When a busy on-the-go mom only has a few minutes during nap time, a devotional is an excellent go-to in the silence of the afternoon. Business people have coffee breaks where they can pour over a convenient app on their smart phones that can lead them in short studies and thoughts on God’s Word as well as guided prayer. We all have a few moments that can and should be intentionally planned to spend time with God no matter what excuses the day makes for us. The distractions of life can’t take away the truth of God.
Hebrews 10:23-25 ESV
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.Devotionals are a way to connect with our faith in the middle of our hectic lives.

I am dedicating the next 20 days to writing devotionals that the Lord has put on my heart. I am encouraged through a small group of faith bloggers to find intentional time over the month of February to write for God, myself, and my community. I hope to see you follow along with me and to be encouraged.
