Time Alone with God

CORBIN — We as ministers often share that people need to have time alone with God. With the changing of society, technology and all the additions of our personal schedules ‘time alone with God’ has certainly seen some changes over the years. I was officially licensed into the Gospel Ministry in 1982. During that time period, ‘time alone with God’ when heard by a minister or speaker generally meant that there was a time that was set aside where you would read your Bible, prayed or had a system that best used the time set aside to communicate with God personally. In the 1980’s people had busy schedules but there were some aspect of our current lives that were not present then, as they are today. For example, cellular phones were a new invention for the United States. If you had a phone back then it was either the Motorola Brick or your other options was what everyone simply referred to as a bag phone. As indicated by it’s label name, it was simple a telephone, much like what was inside your home and was in a black bag. I am thinking that for the younger generation reading some might not even be aware of what a home phone is, given the fact that many homes today do not even have home landlines.
