What's in a Name?

It is really quite difficult to pick a name for a blog.  Do you do something cutesy or clever?  Or do you pick something that has a deep meaning and significance to you?  Do you pick something catchy or something understated?   I think you have to pick something that goes along with the theme of your blog.  I am going to be using this blog to write about the things God is teaching me and I wanted a name that invoked the emotions that I feel when God is near. 

Everyone has a different "cozy place."  It is the place in your home or life that you feel God closest.  For some people it is an old chair or couch with a view out of window in which you can sit and reflect on who your God is.  For others it may be outdoors, walking through the woods or even on a porch swing.  More simply it may just be those 3 minutes from the moment you open your eyes in bed to the time you get up and start your day in which you just breathe and reflect on your life and your faith. 

I have had many cozy places over the years, some outdoors, some indoors, some in the peaceful moments of life and some in the adventurous moments.  But the most important thing is that you have your own cozy place.  We all need to have a place where God feels near, where we can hear him speak to us.  It is in the day to day normalties of life that God is trying to teach us how to live and live for Him. 

So where is your cozy place?  If you don't have one, find one.  Go there for at least 5 minutes every day.  You don't have to say anything, you don't have to pray or talk or read.  Just be available to God.  Show Him that you care and you want to hear from Him.  It's such a small thing but can make such a big difference.  Some days you may need just a few minutes to reconnect and others you may need an hour to pour out your heart to Him.  Just go there.  Find your cozy place, get comfortable, and prepare yourself for God to do an amazing work in your life. 

I am going to write about what God is teaching me and I'd love to know what He teaches you as well!  Many blessings as we go on this adventure together!
