This post is for you, woman, and me. More so, tomorrow’s me.
I’ve been struggling to spend time with the Lord in the usual way I have done in the past. Most mothers will say because they don’t have the time. I have the time (evenings that is), it’s embarrassing to admit. But I often find myself choosing Pinterest, interior design blogs (I’m obsessed with interior design), playing with my daughter, working, researching for work etc. The struggle to spend time with the Lord does not look like this everyday, but I notice that’s where my heart seems to be most mornings and evenings when I ‘have the time’. I am at the core choosing everything else but time with God. Interestingly enough, my main love language is quality time. I bet God is laughing.
I’ve decided to start a new study on my own and to share my thoughts and reflections on it. In the meantime, I have also purchased 4 books in the past 5 minutes onto my kindle. One is something my husband and I will start reading, my husband has really been inspired to start a book with me. It’s a challenge honestly to finish a book with my husband, but we are embarking on this journey with the hope and purpose of adding more life and intention to our family. It’s a book I have been wanting to read for the past few years. The second is a handbook for it. The third is another book I have been meaning to read for the past few years. The last one is a book on motherhood and the Gospel. Well, all four is about the Gospel.
Lately, I have had numerous women from all over the world contact me on my Instagram account to ask questions about fibroids, baby eczema, and pregnancy. I am so sorry to a few of you where somehow your messages have just shown up despite being sent awhile back. I am not sure how that happened. If you’re reading this, thank you so much for reaching out to me. You are the reason I have started sharing my journey 3 years ago. I have been honest by saying how much my Christian faith has impacted my journey. God really sets my story and sometimes I forget that when I am in the midst of worrying about things of this world. So, to all of you women who have contacted me, thank you for indirectly reminding me what’s important. You have inspired me in your own quest of wanting answers to get back to a more disciplined time schedule where I devote my priority to spending time with the Lord first.
If you’re interested, I am starting a study from my She Reads Truth App. It is the Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Haggai Plan. It is a reading plan that will help ‘gain insight into God’s character and learn more about His faithfulness.’. Feel free to join along and comment.
