Do you remember the days when you first fell for Jesus? Nothing could seem to stop you…but then came work, kids, ministry, the Internet, email, text messaging, Ipods, HD Widescreens, websites, blackberries, cell phones…oh the list goes on and on…and we just don’t have any time. We don’t “shut down” our stuff…we shut down Jesus.

I love the book of James…He cuts to the chase. My favorite verse in the book is 4:8. Come near to God and He will come near to you. He’s always there waiting for us, but it’s our choice to spend time with Him! I know it’s my time to boot back up with Him and let several of the other things go. Come near to God and He will come near to you. How awesome is that?!
