When my husband or children start to just make me crazy with anything they do, I know it’s time to spend more time with them. It is completely counterintuitive, but it’s completely true. I don’t need to spend time near them, I need to spend time with them. I need a date with my husband, I need to play with my children. I need to reconnect in ways that remind me why I love them in the first place, because that has been taken over by all the “things” that need to be done. It can be that way with God, too. I can get so caught up in the “things” that I forget to just spend time with Him. I should be reading the Bible, praying, looking at the world He has given me, and seeing the graces He pours into my life. Why do I love Him in the first place? Because He loves me. How can I resist?
