I wanted to share with you something that was really helpful for me this morning. Simply hitting pause. Last night as I was trying to go to sleep I felt convicted by the weight of my selfish desire to be in control of so many things. After my days have consisted of endless hours spent looking for houses, jobs, buying groceries, etc. There has been very little of my time spent in prayer or even reading God's word. Why? I don't understand! I should be so thrilled to wake up every morning craving God's Word to teach me and guide me.
This morning after our 6a workout, I came home, packed Mitch's lunch, took a shower, put my phone on do not disturb, and HIT PAUSE on everything. I needed this far more than I had thought, but God knew I needed time with Him free from distractions. He made that very clear before I fell asleep last night. I'm thankful for conviction and realization even when it's frustrating. It's incredibly important to put God before all things. I would encourage all of you to schedule at least 1 hour by the end of the week to hit pause and spend time praying, reading, and journaling. It'll be worth it, I promise!
Not only am I sharing this with you, I'm reminding myself! Please help keep me accountable for my time in the Word. What are some things that are consuming your time? distracting you? or just keeping you from spending time with God?
We're not alone -- The struggle is real for all of us.
I'd love the opportunity to pray for you! Shoot me a message or comment below.
