I do alot "for" God is what I have said lots of times. I am Children's church Director, Kids of the King Director, I teach Children's church, I work in the nursery, I am over Moms meeting and I help with everything I can in the church. But, I don't spend alot of time with God. I read my bible enough to teach my class or in church but that is about it. I have lots of excuses why but that is all they are, excuses.
What happened to studying the bible? What happened to reading it daily? I say, "I meant to", "It got too late", "I don't have time in the morning", "It was bedtime before I new it", "I am just so busy". Any of that sound familiar? Those are just some of my excuses and they are just that, excuses. Yes, I do live a busy life but if I am too busy for God, is any of it worth it? Is facebook, movies, a book, shopping, etc more important than God? They must be as I spend more time with them than Him.
I have been so convicted of this lately and I am just not happy where I am. I am always so tired from "doing" and I just don't want to "do" anymore. Now, I don't want to just stop doing for God but I do want to make more time for Him.
My plans after much thought is this--- I plan to read my bible daily, not a set number of verses but just read until I feel like I got what God wanted to give me. I have a book called "Women of the Bible, a one-year devotional study" and they are short little devotions and I am going to start doing it.
Where would I be without God? I know God has answered so many prayers for me and the ones I love and His Son died for ME and it is about time, I started living for Him. Will I suddenly be perfect? No, none are perfect except Jesus but I do want to try to do better and with God's help, I will be. Check back with me to see how things are going? Share with me, what do you do, what helps you? I love to learn from others too.
