Opportunity and inconvenience - by Zach Totaro

Before today I could not have imagined waking up at 5am, dragging myself out of bed and walking over to the pavilion to sit alone for an hour. I dreaded the thought the night before of waking up so early. It seemed impossible and inconvenient, but anyone who has experienced God knows that his plans don't always line up with our version of convenient. 

I wasn't sure where to start my Bible reading so I did the one thing that always seemed to work. With Bible in hand I shuffled through the pages and stopped at a random spot. I ended up in the book of Matthew , and everything seemed to click. Matthew 6:6 says the following: "But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." We don't need to go perform huge public acts, God sees everything, even the small things. 

So next time you have the opportunity, even if it's inconvenient, make some time to spend with God, by yourself with no distractions.
