Go with God

Go With God
By Ruthann Schmudde
A New Life Church Write4Him Author

The 60/60 is an exercise to remind us to think of God, talk to God, and be with God. God holds us safely in the hollow of his hand, nurturing and protecting us, forgiving and loving us. He thinks of us each and every second. We know that he has us, so other than this exercise, we don’t have to force ourselves to connect every hour on the hour.

But we need to learn to truly go with God. According to Soul Revolution, page 145, God needs our willingness to cause growth in us. That means we need to talk, pray and give thanks to him often and commit ourselves to a life that pleases him. We have to ask God to help us to give up thoughts and actions that don’t honor him and replace them with thoughts and actions that do. We have to love and accept ourselves and others, too. He will guide us if we ask him; we can pray for change to take place within us.

Becoming the person he wants us to be may a long, hard journey; none of us will do it all in one day. But he is there with us every step of the way.

PRAYER: Dear God, Please help me to always choose to be connected and committed to you. Reform me into the spiritual being that you intended, and help me to be open and willing to do what you ask.
