I found a technique of connecting with God that really worked for me.
Jesuit High School. Fall. 1998. Free period/lunch. Behind the columns of the Chapel on the library side. Me. My Bible.
I connected so well with God then. Reading my Bible was fresh and new, exciting.
Then it was musical worship. Then prayer. Then Scripture memorization. Then Small Group Bible Study. Then preaching. Now, I'm not sure.
My friend Joe Moore once told me that the technique that best helps me connect to God may change over time, as my life changes, as I grow. I've found him to be right.
We don't need to be slavishly tied to technique when it comes to connecting with God. The 30 minute quiet time may not be helpful for a mother with young children. Different people, in different seasons of life, will connect with Jesus in different ways.
I think I'll explore this theme over the next couple of days.
