As you might know, I just recently got back from church camp! The week I spent there was totally life changing and brought me so much closer to God. The biggest thing I learned at camp was how important time alone with God is. Time alone with God strengthens your relationship with the Lord and shows Him how much you love Him.

 One way to make sure you spend time alone with God every day is to set out a time each day just for devotions or reading your Bible. For you morning people, as soon as you wake up you can make it a point to reach for your Bible or devotional. For you night owls, after you do your nightly routine, climb into bed or find a quiet place to spend some time with God.  

Another way to make sure you spend time with Him is to get a devotional that applies to you and interests you. A good devotional for teens is “Email from God” by Claire Cloninger and Curt Cloninge. The daily devotions are set up like they are emails from God to you, so it is super teen friendly!


Matthew 6:6 says “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

 The reward God will give you for spending time with Him is not material things, but you will see a positive change in your relationships with your friends and family.

 This week, try spending at least 10 minutes alone with God. See how it will change your life!
