I need your help. In a little over a month, I will be serving on a panel that will discuss the practical aspects of spending time with God. Yesterday, I had a great conversation with the seminar director about this session. We chatted about daily time with God and the barriers women tend to raise that cause the relationship side of devotions to fall victim to the "shoulda, woulda, coulda side of things. This is where you come in. I would love to hear from you. Specifically, how has your devotional life changed through different life stages? What elements of personal devotion and worship are the most meaningful/life changing for you (for example: time spent in nature, relaxing in a cozy chair while reading, personal musical worship, etc)? What resources (books, devotional guides, etc.) have been the most beneficial to you? Have you ever had an "aha" moment where you realized what you were doing was entirely out of duty? If so, what idea/element opened your eyes to putting the relational aspect back into your time with God? Any other tips, ideas, etc for enhancing and strengthening your personal time with God?
