Ok. I don't really like to make New Year's resolutions because, well frankly, I'm horrible about keeping them for 12 months! So don't consider this set in stone.
The Lord has been speaking to my husband and I for the past few months about prayer... A LOT!! Then to put icing on the cake, He confirms to me on the last day of 2011, that YES! He wants me to communicate with Him more... to be a visual example of that communication for my children... to not only pray with them at bedtime, but pray OVER them throughout the day... to stop and do the most important thing I can at any given moment: set aside the temporal "urgent" stuff to invest in eternity! I believe Father is asking me to resolve to come to Him more and bring my children with me. He desires for us to draw near to His throne of grace for more than just requests. He wants us to bless Him, worship Him, thank Him, intercede for each other and those not in our immediate family... He desires for us to grow closer to Him in relationship, not just knowledge ABOUT Him.
I know He's been gracious in allowing me to slowly examine our relationship together. I admit, I've been found wanted. My Father wants more of me in His presence, sitting at His feet, letting Him speak to me and sing over me. He wants me closer so I can feel His comfort, hear His whisper of love, correction, and exhortation. He's drawing my heart... I just need to discipline this ugly flesh of mine!
Maybe you have a very healthy prayer life. Maybe you're like me, and it leaves little to be desired. Either way, take some time to ask you Father if He is pleased with where your relationship is currently and where it is heading. Or does He miss those talks you once had together? Have you told Him you'd meet Him routinely, only to allow the temporal "urgent" business to draw you away momentarily?
