My house has become increasingly chaotic over the last couple of years. Don’t get me wrong — the chaos is beautiful and so, so, SO much fun — but I confess my time spent in the Bible and in real, focused prayer have faltered…errr…OK, actually, the truth is I’ve NEVER been super disciplined in this area, and this recent increase in chaos hasn’t made it any easier.
I’ve been reassured that “God understands where you are at in this season of your life”…and while I know this is true and that his grace is sufficient, I also know that my need for Him has not diminished, and that my need for Him has only INCREASED. (It’s hard to pour into little lives when the pitcher’s empty!). I’m starting to see that I need to get creative. I can’t wait for 15 minute stretches of quiet to sit down, read my Bible and pray, because I don’t always get it. I’m thinking, however, that maybe I could be more intentional and “thinking outside the box” about seeking God throughout my day.
Does this make any sense? I’m not even sure. I’m just typing (I’m kind of liking this new “scribbling” approach to blogging.). Anyway, what I want to know is, especially if you are a mommy, what do YOU do to seek Him? How do you stay connected to Him even in the midst of your chaos? What does that look like for you? I’d love to hear your ideas & thoughts!
