Life can get very hectic. I am in a stage of my life where going to graduate school, looking for a home, getting married, working two jobs, and becoming a new auntie are all happening at the same time. Though these are all positive things, the amount of attention and time needed for all of these aspects of life can lead to me forgetting to take time out for myself and care for my own, personal needs.
I am the type of person that seriously enjoys a busy schedule, but I am reminded constantly that God has to fit into our busy schedule. He has blessed us with the life we have and we need to make sure to take time and thank him for that. It is so important to take care of your own personal needs, and that includes taking time out for devotionals.
God has one of the busiest schedules we can imagine; yet He always finds time to listen to our needs and watch over us- to the point where he knows everything about us. The least we can do is give back to Him by giving up our time to be in the Word of God and grow in Him.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
God truly wants to spend time with you, and there is so much you get out of spending time with God! We grow in knowledge and understanding as we walk through the trials of life. When life gets busy our stress level can rise! That seems like a perfect time to indulge in God’s word and immerse yourself in His joy that cannot be shaken through life circumstances.
I have set a time to do my devotionals that is most helpful with my schedule for the day. Every night I spend time before bed in God’s word and praying, this has made all the difference for me, by scheduling time with God I never miss out on an opportunity to grow in His word and work on my own self.
I encourage all you beautiful ladies to schedule a time that works best for you to spend time with God everyday. You never have to worry; God will always be waiting for you- no matter the time in the day!
Until Next Time,
