Hey everyone! (:
We're busy people, let's face it. Yes, even us teenagers. We might not start off so busy, but then we fill up our schedules with school work, friends, going to the movies, phone calls, sports and NaNo. ;) Sometimes it can be hard just to sit quietly and focus on God. Even for a few moments a day. Why is this so difficult? Just like a close friend, he longs to spend time with you and can't wait to spend some time just with you. Think about this.
If you go to the movies with your friend who you have not seen in awhile, and your friend spends the entire time texting another friend, on the phone, or talking about another close friend they have..would you feel like your friend really cared enough to spend time with you? I know I would really be thinking about how well my friendship is doing if this was to happen. Now, you do need to keep in mind that God will never look you're relationship and decide someone would make a better friend. He loves you all so much that he keeps pursuing you. Beautiful, just beautiful.
So in a way, I have a challenge for you. Spend some time with Jesus. Just time alone. Even if it for 1 hour, 20 minutes, or 5 minutes of your day. God gave his Son to us, don't you think you should be able to give him 5 minutes of your day? Jesus speaks to us in different ways and he knows our heart. You never know, you just might get a hug from Jesus. :)
