O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You.
- Psalm 63:1, NKJV
God seemed to come to my door one day and ask if I would start walking with Him by getting up early in the morning for prayer and Bible reading. At first I thought it was something I had to do. I dragged my feet because I found I didn’t want to sacrifice the extra few minutes of sleep! He was so patient as He waited for me to understand that it wasn’t something I had to do; instead it was a personal time of fellowship where I could just grow in my love relationship with Him.
One reason I have maintained my walk with God is that no one else – not my beloved family or my close and loyal friends – really understands me. No one else truly knows my fears and longings and hurts and dreams and failures. But He shares my feelings, my loneliness. Spending time with God as I “walk” with Him meets needs that are in the deepest part of me. He Himself is the solution to the loneliness of the human spirit.
