Yes or No?

Some questions for you today – Please answer each question honestly by answering either YES or NO. i.e. Pass of Dont’ Know are not acceptable answers!

  1. Are you an optimistic person?
  2. Do you consider yourself to be a Christian?
  3. Do you listen to music regularly?
  4. Do you believe in God?
  5. Do you pray every day?
  6. Do you like reading books?
  7. Do consider yourself to be PC literate?
  8. Are you in love?
  9. Do you read the bible each day?
  10. Are you a Social Networking addict?

So how many questions did you answer YES to and how many did you answer NO?

I answered NO to two of the above questions and YES to the rest – but which ones do you think I answered NO to?

It may surprise you to know that I answered NO to question 5 – Do you pray every day? and also question 9 – Do you read the bible each day? Although I consider myself to be a Christian and try to do all I should, I do fail at two of the main tasks expected of me…praying and reading my bible every day.

I have no acceptable excuses for not praying or reading my bible each day as the times I fail is normally because I’m too busy doing other things that these important God focused tasks are omitted from my day. Sometimes I must admit that it’s not even a conscious decision on my part not to do these things but just what happens.

Does this sound familiar to you? I’m sure if you’re honest in your answers you may find yourself realising the same as me.

So how do I stop this happening and making sure I do give God the time He deserves in my day? Well there are a few things we can do:

Pray, ask God to help you become more God focused

Put aside a set time each day to spend with God

Find your “Quiet Place” and use that to have your time with God

I will be trying some of the above suggestions to try to help me spend time with God each day, as He wants and expects me to do. I pray you will try to do likewise. Good luck!

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He hath made every thing beautiful in his time

In His time, in His time,
He makes all thing beautiful in His time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.

In Your time, in Your time,
You make all thing beautiful in Your time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.
