Creating a devotional life with God can be a difficult discipline to cultivate.
I have experienced seasons when my devotional life with God seemed unstoppable. I can recall a period of time in seminary when I could not set the Bible down. It was like being addicted to Netflix - I just could not get enough of it!
Conversely, I have also gone through long slumps when my alone time with God felt like sledging through mud. Each step felt hard and exhausting. I still loved Jesus and valued my faith, but my desire to invest into it wained - and sometimes for unknown reasons.
Doesn't it seem odd that any of us would feel that way when spending time with the Creator of the Universe who rescued us from sin and death?
