It’s official. I make crazy choices! And I don’t even know why.
Today I was just sitting in God’s presence worshipping Him and allowing Him to show His love for me. It was such a sweet moment. There was peace and happiness… pure perfection. And I am not even talking about hours of my time. Just 15 precious minutes devoted just to Him. And afterwards, I felt completely recharged.
Based on this you would think I would make it a priority to take 15 minutes every day to do this. Why wouldn’t I??? And yet I don’t. I allow the craziness of kids schedules, work, household maintenance and life in general to dictate the seconds of my day. Seriously y’all why? Why can’t I just prioritize God – especially when I know from personal experience how much better life is when I do. It’s crazy!!!
Nope. This isn’t the point where I declare making God a priority my New Year’s Resolution. Nope. I am not going to make a false promise to do better at it either. Remember I’m all about authenticity now ;). And the truth is no matter how hard I try life will get the best of me and I will slip up. So why try and pretend I won’t. Instead here’s what I will work towards: In the days and weeks to come, when I’ve neglected to spend precious moments in His presence, and I feel myself becoming overwhelmed, may I – instead of having a meltdown- remember the calming peace of His presence and immediately seek it. May my setbacks not hinder my relationship with Christ but rather draw me into a deeper dependency until I genuinely remember and seek to sit in His presence more than anything else.
May God be a part of my daily life, not out of habit, but out of heart!!!
