When God is trying to get my attention He'll remind me of something in a few different ways.
Lately, I have been feeling like my quiet times are just so inconsistent. I try to catch a few minutes here, 30 minutes there, just whenever I can find time in between taking care of two kids, helping my sister, and the other daily demands of being a wife, mom, and woman! Sometimes it's at nap time, other times it's at bedtime, then maybe it will be in the morning. It's not been consistent since before I had kids.
After reading "Shopping for Time" (which will be our Book of the Month for September), then reading the post of my mom's from yesterday, and finally after starting up my bible study at church, I realized I need to make a radial commitment to my quiet time: I need to WAKE UP before my kids!
So last night I prepared! I put a lamp upstairs next to my chair, with my bible and journal! I was going to get up early. God woke me up at 5:58! I knew this was Him waking me up saying, "Heather, here's your chance to spend time with me!"
I got up and went out to my chair, sat down and I hear Miles starting to talk (normally he's up at 6:30)! I think that when a mom opens her bible it's an internal alarm clock in her kids. But I ignored him, and had my quiet time!
Thank you Lord!
Are you struggling with your quiet times? What radial steps do you need to make to be faithful in your quiet time with the Lord daily? Maybe you've established a good pattern, if you have are you willing to share?
I do enjoy comments!
