How to make time for your bible...

Have you ever gone through a season where your bible has gone untouched from Sunday after church till the following Sunday when its time for church again? I have. And it’s a hard season to be in.

 

It was never my desire to go a whole week without reading my bible. To the contrary, I believe I desired it even more when I wasn’t grabbing on to the bible for at least a few minutes a day.

 

In the last three and half years I have been pregnant 3 times. Yes, three times! Between these short three years, I have been on constant diaper duty, nursing and bottle feeding, tending to piles of laundry, making more meals than I can ever count, and lets not forget about the many, many messes that unexpectedly happen throughout the day. If that does not require a moment alone to receive peace, patience, and help from the Lord then I don’t know what does.

 

Just as Katie states in her post, “our priorities shift as a mother and as a mother it is hard to not keep our children from being our number one priority but God should be our number one priority.”

 

Katie gives an encouraging solution to this. I hope you receive it as much as I have.

 

Here is Katie’s post featuring on Salt & Light Link Up…..

 

Looking at my schedule one might think I’m not that busy. But moms know better. While my schedule gives structure to my day it doesn’t factor in all the nursing, the chores, the tantrums, the teachable moments, the fights, the laughter, the tears, the cuddles, the dirty diapers, the “mommy, mommy, mommy’s, the “oops”, the “owies’s”, the “one more time’s”, the “play with me’s”, and the daily failings and victories of motherhood.

 

Whether our schedules show it or not; motherhood, especially in the early years, is a busy and demanding time. Someone is always needing something from us whether it’s fed, changed, bathed, loved on, taught, corrected, played with, or listened to. And in the background the laundry piles grow, the dishes stack up, the cupboards start running low, the dirt and dog fur start collecting, the toys all over the floor multiply, and the weeds keep growing.

 

All the while our Bible rarely gets opened, devotions are rushed, prayer time is short, and Sunday morning’s focus is on getting out the door instead of on preparing for worship.

 

Moms, I get it…..
