10 pm and the house was finally quiet.
I ran through the checklist in my overwhelmed mind. I grasped at anything that would make me feel accomplished that day …
What could I check off that would say all the busy was “worth it”? Could I find my value that day in how many things I had gotten done?
I knew it was what God had called me to do.
What was I missing?
No Time for Quiet Time?
Are you powering through your day only to get to the end and realize you spent no time with God?
I’ve been there friend.
Maybe you actually found a few minutes – but then skipped it. You will just wait until you can “get a chunk” of 30 mins or more to study your Bible.
And then it never happened.
I’ve been there too.
As busy, overwhelmed Moms, we must remember to build from the foundation up. We glorify God and serve our families best when we operate from our overflow.
Psalm 127:1-2 tells us:
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.
When we spend intentional time in the word it will flow into all that we do.
Let’s not fall into the trap of condemnation thinking only large amounts of time spent with Him is “enough”.
Matthew 6:33 says
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
We must be intentional to put God first in our lives and I want to help you do it! Yes, even if you are a crazy busy, overwhelmed and time-pressed Mama.
