Kelly loves to read, and she sometimes loses track of time. In many ways it is a way for her to escape. Her mother noticed that her time spent reading was increasing and commented, “Kelly, you have been reading a lot lately. Why don’t you try taking a break and doing something different?”
Kelly stiffened and replied, “Maybe later.” But she did think about how much time she was spending on her hobby and how little time she spent with God. Still, her books were more enjoyable than “quiet time with God.” That hadn’t been true in her life before, and she wondered how she might return to a more meaningful relationship with God.
If she came to you about “getting focused,” how would you encourage her to fast and focus her life in a way that would honor God and would bring joy to her and others?
