“My Time With Him…”

Thoughts From A Dusty Road: by Dusty Wells (July 2023)

 It sure does seem like so many of us are in those times of questioning God about so many things.  From financial to relationships then on to spiritual then back over to jobs & careers and sometimes we question our abilities, looks, attitudes and so many “but why God”, and of course the list of cares and concerns can go on and on.  I know for myself I have had many daily questions…ok, maybe hourly.   Seriously, we all have questions about all we are walking thru and dealing with, and you know what?  It’s ok…it really is…

He knows everything we are questioning, asking, and wondering about and the good news is, He has the answers.  Not always our answers and certainly not in our timing, but He does always have the perfect and “right on time” answer for each one of us.  As I age, I am so glad I finally understand and recognize this powerful truth.  Someone asked me earlier today as I was talking with them about this, “How did you come to the place of understanding?”   I gave them my thoughts and shared my heart.  

Here is my answer…

One of the first things I saw in action and watched intently when I first got saved at the age of 14, was the precious people that led me to the Lord and that I went to church with was their belief in and living out the power of prayer.  They not only believed in prayer, but they lived it, they demonstrated it, they share it and when it came to Wednesday night prayer meetings, that little Pentecostal church in Twin Falls, Idaho shook with people praising Him, worshipping Him, and crying out to Him with all kinds of needs, requests and thanksgiving.   They showed me the power of taking time with Him, talking to Him and what true intimacy with God was all about.   Week after week, I would attend those prayer meetings and they became such life to me.  Growing up in an unsaved home and environment, I truly began to believe and live out that time with Him.   I grabbed hold of the power of prayer…I was desperate daily for more of Him and prayer made me feel so close and intimate with Him.  I was told over and over to tell Him everything and talk to Him about every situation in my life.  And what do you know?  I believed it and I wanted to live it out…I didn’t know any better.  

And so here it is 50 years later, and I can honestly stand before anyone and proudly proclaim that “my time with Him” is the most valuable part of the day.   His Word is full of powerful truth and stories of how prayer has worked.  For me, I have experienced healing, I have seen first-hand miracles of God in all kinds of circumstances and situations.   I have also had those times of waiting and waiting for prayers to be answered and I still am waiting for answers, but I have never doubted the power of prayer.  His greatest desire for each of us is for us to come to Him with every need that we have…big or small.  He wants us to communicate and have such tender intimacy with Him, and let me assure you friends, there is nothing like being in His presence and experiencing that intimacy with Him.   His faithfulness will always surpass the greatest of our needs.   I know it…I believe it…I want to proclaim it and live it out ever louder. 

Take some time with Him right now…get alone with Him…just start talking to Him…He knows, and He cares and He promises to never leave us nor forsake us.  How awesome is that?

Mama Dottie Rambo penned some of the greatest lyrics ever and I love to start the day singing them…”I didn’t come here to ask you for anything, I just came to talk with you Lord”.

I sure am glad we can talk with Him always!
