“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”  Jeremiah 33:3

I have a small challenge today, friends.  A challenge I feel God laid on my heart for all of us. Regardless of your plans, this promises to be a sweet addition to your day.


Let’s stop and take these 5 minutes we would have spent reading this devotional and give them directly to God.  Can you find a quiet place?  Lock yourself in your bathroom, if need be!  Let’s take a breath and focus our attention completely on God, right now.  Let’s fight the urge to “do this later”.  Let’s put Him first today!

He promises to draw near to us as we draw near to Him (James 4:8).  If your desire is to sense God’s presence and direction in your life more clearly, there is no better time than the present!  Let’s take the first step and sit with Him, ready to listen.

If this is an already-established part of your day, awesome!  Here’s 5 more minutes of heaven.  If not, or if you struggle with this regularly, like me, let’s do it!  Let’s find our quiet spaces and say, “Lord, here I am today.  I give you this time.  Change my heart.  Change my mind.  I am listening.”

It’s only five minutes but it could be the catalyst to change everything!

Love and blessings,
