Back in the day I could honestly say that I had a “deep” relationship with God. This isn’t a bragging statement, but I truly took more time to invest in my relationship with God through prayer, reading the bible,
fasting and building friendships with other believers.
Just recently I have been making a return to the basics- “trying” to spend a few minutes each day reading my bible and praying. I’m also trying to be consistent journaling- not blogging but journaling in my little notebook about things on my heart.
It seems each major life transition I have had to readjust how I spend time with God….from single woman to married woman to mom of twins. What worked with one phase of life doesn’t necessarily work for the next phase. Now more than ever I HAVE TO MAKE TIME for my relationship with God. Right now my connecting time with God is right after the boys morning meal….which is usually their happiest time of the day. In between the boys coming up to me and breaking up a fight I am finding time to journal, pray and read my bible. It’s not ideal but it is a big deal for me!
I’m not saying that all the frustrations of life are going to somehow magically fade away because of this…but I know by allowing God to be a priority in my life He will strengthen me, give me more wisdom and freshen my perspective on parenting these little guys.
