I have recently been struggling to work in my quiet time. My life has been consumed by so many things and I have found myself making excuses. It’s not that I feel like I am okay to go with out, because I need to grow. I am not perfect. But for some unknown reason, I have found excuses.
I have tried to find ways to make it “easier” to have my quiet time. I have found devotions, wrote sticky notes, set alarms on my phone, and so many other things to push myself. However, it shouldn’t be a challenge. Why is that? Why do I make it a challenge to talk/spend time with God?
I have recently began taking a journal bible class. This has been the only way that I have squeezed in time with God. Although it is better than what I was spending, I need more time.
I can use the excuse that there is never enough time in a day, which there is not, but there is ALWAYS time for the Lord.
“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens” – Ecclesiastes 3:1
This has been a verse that I have grown to love. There is a time for everything. There is always time. There is a time to cry, laugh, smile, and to be happy. There is a time for everything. There is time to spend with the Lord. There is always time for prayer and a time for study. There is always time to grow with the Lord.
I pray for the ones who are currently struggling with me. I pray that we grow more in faith. I pray that we use our time to the fullest. I pray that we follow the steps that the Lord puts in front of us. I pray for you.
