Hey @Mein! The situation you’ve described is probably a familiar one for most Christians at some point in their lives. I recognise that ‘oh I’ve done it again’ feeling . I guess when one falls out of a habit of intentionally spending time with God, it’s easy for the well meaning part of us to think that setting aside an hour or half an hour a day will remedy that situation. The trouble is, when we fail to achieve it, we can feel the failure is great. What I often find is that if I reduce that time to start with and say to myself, I’ll start with ten minutes here and there, then as I grow in both the habit and my closeness with God, a natural hunger for more of His presence also grows and I’ll find myself spending a lot more time with God without striving to achieve it.
Turning your thoughts to God in the ordinary and mundane parts of life also seems to increase the sense of his presence. For example, I was walking in some woods earlier and suddenly it occurred to me that God created them, that his hand designed the miniature ecosystems surrounding me, and that as I walked through it, I was also part of that incredible design and creation. The thought process was brief, but in that moment, I experienced the presence of God. You could use times of household chores and routines to meditate on a Bible verse. Incorporating time with God into an existing habit is a useful way to ensure you spend time with him.
I’d also like to recommend an app - it is also one that you can set an alarm on your phone for 1 minute , ten minutes etc to stop everything and focus back on God. It’s called One Minute Pause.
I hope that helps
