Not Enough Time?

Having a hard time getting into the word? Lately, I have been struggling with finding time to spend with the Lord. I am so busy, having to wake up early for school, having homework at night, doing chores, trying to have a social life, and wanting a few evenings to myself for down time. Even though these seem like really convincing reasons, I know that there are no good reasons why I can't make time for the Lord. Here I'm worrying about trying to fit God into my schedule, when instead I should be fitting my schedule around my alone time with Him. God should be my number one priority. Instead of us waking up to our phone sending text messages to our friends to say "good morning", we should be sending a prayer up to God. Talking with Him, starting our day off right. This sounds so easy to do, but we all seem to struggle with making time. I find myself doing this alot actually. But then I think of all the things Christ has done for me it's amazing. God has always been forgiving, loving, faithful, and he has never left my side, ever! God wants us to talk to him and praise him, and read his word. I want to encourage you all to spend time in the word. Talk with him, thank him, praise him, and most importantly love him and cherish the time your able to have with him. Because not everyone is able to have this opportunity!

  4. Very true that God is always faithful to us even when we are not faithful to Him. I think that all Christians struggle at some point with daily devotions.

    When I have these struggles I ask God to help me be faithful to Him. It is truly His strength that enables us and makes us want to put Him first.

    May God bless you in your desires and efforts to obey Him. Nice blog. I am now following you. :)

  5. Yeah! What a good reminder :) I have found that the more in love with God I fall, the less of a "chore" or obligation reading the word and praying becomes. I simply want to draw closer to Him the more I love Him!
