Sometimes we get down or discouraged maybe from illness or injury. These are perfect times to spend those down times with God. We are so often so busy that we don’t take the time we should in prayer and reading God’s Word. It may even be what God allowed in our life to slow us down. Only blessings will come by our time well spent so give it a try. Encouragement and growth will come and it will give you something productive to do. Watching a Bible based sermon on TV vs. choosing just any show will bring about more benefit. Reading God’s Word vs. any old book will bring about more benefit. Since God’s Word is alive, it is fresh even when we reread it. Spending time with God will bring challenges and excitement while some of the other activities can bring boredom when we spend too much time on them.
