What is an hour? It’s driving the kids to soccer practice, dance, gymnastics. It’s preparing a meal for my family. It’s working on the presentation for work. The day goes by with all these priorities and tasks at hand. Ever felt like you forgot something, forgot a high priority? Jesus? Just as he asked centuries ago, today he is asking, can you sit and watch one hour with me?  
How do we set aside time for Jesus in such a busy world, a world full of demands, full of activities? First we must have intent. Second we must declutter our day, and prioritize time with God, fix our eyes on Jesus. Perhaps this time is just sitting, absorbing nature or perhaps it is just gazing into the presence of Jesus found in the innocence of a child. I think if we don’t set aside some time, prioritize time with God in the busyness of our day, we become lost, longing for something that is missing. So, will you make time to spend one hour fixated on Jesus, the one who gave all for your salvation and paved the way for your path to Heaven?
