Wanna Chat?

Don't talk about what you have done or what you are going to do.” -Thomas Jefferson

After a long day of work and classes, I contemplated whether to go the gym.  “I’m tired,” I thought.  “I can just go tomorrow.”  Something in me knew this wasn’t right.  I went anyway, and what I learned is that after I started working out, I wasn’t tired anymore!  On the contrary, I was invigorated.  I was doing something I enjoyed—it wasn’t an errand, rather it was exciting.  Now I’m stronger.  Sometimes if we’re not careful, we look at prayer as a chore on a ‘to-do’ list rather than a conversation with our Best Friend.  A right relationship with God refreshes and renews you!  The Holy Spirit saturates you with strength and you walk around smiling the rest of the day.  Today find some alone time with your Best Friend to chat and catch up. 

But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer (Psalm 66:19, NLT).
