“Just Hanging Out” with Josh Baldwin
As you go through life, it can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily responsibilities and the constant distractions of technology and social media. However, it is important to take time to be quiet and present with God. By setting aside distractions, you can open yourself up to hear His voice and discern His plans for your life.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
– Matthew 6:33 ESV
“We over complicate our relationship with the Lord,” songwriter and worship leader, Josh Baldwin shared. “Hanging out – that’s what the Lord did with Adam. They just walked together.” That’s the kind of relationship Josh desires to have with Him.
One way to grow in your relationship with God is to spend time alone with Him – go for walks and share your thoughts, feelings and questions with Him. Just as you have conversations with friends and family, you can also have conversations with God. This is the time for you to unload your worries and concerns and to ask for His guidance and direction.
In order to build a meaningful relationship with God you need to put down other distractions and be intentional with Him.
Another way to be present with God is to make time for quiet reflection and prayer.
- Sit in silence.
- Read Scripture.
- Listen to worship music.
In order to build anything meaningful requires you to put down other distractions and be intentional about your relationship with God.
Today’s One Thing
