Growing Closer to God

About a week ago, I read the post on (in)Courage: How Can I Grow Closer to God? It was a post by writer Lysa TerKeurst, who has written the book, Made to Crave!

It was an inspiring post that got me thinking of the need to distance ourselves from the whatever is is that distracts us from focusing on God!

Thanks so much for your sharing. Sometimes I think I am my own distraction. At times when I am doing my quiet time, I find myself drifting off to my own thoughts. I know I am supposed to wait upon the Lord and for His leading, and I am trying and learning how to do that. In a way I will need to learn to distance me from myself and my will and let Him take over.
