Y'all I went back to school for three days last week and by Friday night I was spent. I was exhausted mentally and physically, going back to school is a tough! I'm beyond thankful that I started daily journaling with God and with She Reads Truth. It has been a blessing before I even realized it, I have set this pattern throughout the summer and realized its importance before going back to school. But this is where I need your help.
How do you maintain this time with the Lord when school returns or life gets in the way?
When I can barely get out of bed at 6am, let alone think clearly and thoughtfully to God. When there's homework, dinner, chores to do, dogs to care for and the list goes on and on. But He is so important, I need it!
Y'all, I'm three days in and haven't been able to commit time to my She Reads Truth devotions. I had four days of my Stepping Up study to do and did one. I'm not excelling in any form of Bible study this week other than a morning and evening prayer from Daily Prayers for Busy People by William J. O'Malley. I need help.
I'm craving this time but I don't know how to do it. I'm challenged to spend Sunday as a Sabbath, but am too stressed to get homework done in time to make that happen. I need peace as I'm going through change in my family and I'm not even at peace with where I am with God. My oh my, this is raw.
I'm praying that I may be blessed with information by those in the She Reads Truth community. That God may show me how to spend time with Him through YOU! I pray that I may be able to find patience and endurance to complete my homework and not feel stressed doing so.
I have Philippians 4:8 on a sticky-note on my computer and it's something that I haven't even looked at this week. God is working. I just need to be patient, see it and believe it.
Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about what is pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
