I love this reframe, Chuck! SueAnn, I also remember feeling a sense of shame for “missing” a day of Bible reading, and feeling like I was not close to God or engaged in my faith if I wasn’t consistently reading scripture or spending time in prayer when a mentor would ask me. I think the challenge for me now is to still choose prayer instead of another activity, and giving it value again in my life. I want that sense of closeness to God– not because of work I do or because I am “climbing a ladder” but because of the way I cultivate that awareness again through prayer.
