God Will Meet You Where You Are

18 Jul

Finding a quiet moment when you are parenting little ones can be tricky.  There is never enough hours in the day.  Sleep is a precious commodity, and going to the bathroom alone requires careful orchestration. We are busy caring for our children and husbands, tackling a never ending laundry pile, cooking dinner, running errands, and a hundred other things.  Something has to give and unfortunately that usually means our quiet time (guilty!). Carving out a few minutes to meet alone with the Lord each day is so important-especially in this busy season. What are the benefits? Many. We get direction and wisdom from His word (Psalm 25:4-5).  We grow more like God and His word gives us truth and correction (John 17:17). We have the opportunity to delight in the Lord and to worship and thank Him (Psalm 29:2).  Those are just a few of the reasons.  God will meet you where you are. In the bathroom, in the car, and even at Target. Start small, a few minutes each day. Grab your Bible and/or a devotional and meet with God.

~Be Blessed and be a Blessing~

    It’s like you’re reading my journal or something. I, literally, spoke to my close friend about this earlier this afternoon. I had been looking forward to some MUCH NEEDED quiet time with God, yesterday. My plans got thwarted and, I’m sad to say, I had a bit of an internal tempter tantrum about it. I know that God is always with us but, sometimes I just like to be deliberate about my time with him. No music, no laundry, no quickie prayer before I get out of the car … just me, on my couch with my Bible, journal and a pen, praying and waiting on a response. But, as a mama, that doesn’t always happen so I need to check my attitude about! Whew!

    Just the title is inspiring. It is very hard to find quiet time in our daily lives. Just as we make time to visit with our friends, we need to make time to visit with God because he is our greatest Friend of all.

    A very good point, Rebecca. I admire any mom who is so adamant about spending time with the Lord. I was a young mother with three small children three years and under. I often went to the bathroom with someone in the bathroom with me or just outside the door. When they napped, I tried to catch up on sleep. But now they are grown and gone. One lives in Heaven. Those are precious time that blur by before we know it. I didn’t take time out to be with the Lord then as I wish I had, I often felt so overwhelmed. I now realize what a difference it would have made.
