So, just wondering if I am the only one or if others struggle, on a daily basis, to spend time in the Word?
I know many don’t. Perhaps it’s a girl thing? Perhaps a busy home schooling mum thing? Perhaps just a me thing?
Then when I do get time, other then reading and studying the word with the children, I mean when I get personal, quiet, still, alone time in His word, children wake early, I get distracted, I can’t stay on task, I re read sentences multiple times, the days to do list mulls round in my head! Does any of this sound familiar or am I in this battle alone?
I was reading another blog by a busy mum and was touched by what she wrote when referring to her time in the word. Come expectant. Now that’s good!
So often I have come out of obligation, or fear that if I don’t I have failed Him that day. But I know He wants more. He wants me to come out of hunger for Him and expectation that He has something to say, something to change in me, something to teach me, something to bless me with.
Oh He is so good and I know He has so much for me. Time to step in, stop the excuses, set aside the distractions and come expectant for Him.
Easier said then done … Will someone hold me accountable??
Lord, help me to come into your throne room, daily, with an expectant heart. Please help me to seek your truth from your Word. Help me to learn, grow and be refined by You through the reading of your Word. And let it begin NOW!!
