Playdates with God: Trusting God with My Time


After class we all went out to grab a bite to eat. The glasses were filled and Patrick wanted salt and our professor ordered scotch and I spilled a glass of ice water on Susan’s lap. It had been a long day—with travel and much sitting and taking of notes and such. But the conversation fed us like bread straight from the oven and the warmth was like a fire that we all held our hands out to.

No one wanted the evening to end.

That’s when Betsy’s eyes found mine across the table and she said softly, “For me, times like these are playdates with God.”

I’m sharing this playdate with my friend Dawn today. Will you join us over at her place?

Every Monday I’ll be sharing one of my Playdates with God. I would love to hear about yours. It can be anything: outside, quiet time. Maybe it’s solitary. Maybe it’s loud and crowded. Just find Him. Be with Him. Grab my button at the bottom of the page and join us:

I’m taking the time every day, to invite God into my ordinary, to notice how life responds to his presence when my heart is open to him. It’s a practice that inspired a book. And I’m sharing in community with the 31 dayers.

    I love the simplicity you share in making our every action, our every moment, a realization of His presence. My favorite part was where you mentioned the acts of wordless prayers, it spoke to that deep living part of my hoping. To be a continual reminder of an offer of prayer in all I do. I love it!
    Thanks Laura!
