I remember a time when I SO intended to devote at least a few minutes of my day to spend with the Lord in the morning, but I would end up using any kind of excuse imaginable –somehow, something would always get in the way.
It seemed like even 10 minutes in the morning was just more than I could do. I thought I didn’t have enough time, and that having 10 minutes to spend with the Lord in the morning just didn’t make sense for my life. What a lie I believed!
Somehow it’s gone from that… to wanting to dwell with Him every second of the day. Like I can’t get enough. I go to bed excited for the morning time, when I wake up, get my coffee and journal and just soak in His presence. I know He’s going to meet me there. My morning time has expanded to all day, and then into the night. You know, I never thought I would say that? Ha!
Please hear me –I am not saying this to sound like I have achieved anything…. it’s all the Lord and His work in me. He has transformed my thinking AND my time. I don’t even know how it happened.
The past few years have been a very busy time for us, with our business, things going on in our lives. But the funny thing is, somehow I feel like my time goes a much longer way than it used to.
How did that happen?
Well, I really think there is a secret to the time we give to dwelling with the Lord. It’s like He does something with the rest of our time, to make it a time that goes further. It’s like He blesses our time. We’re able to get more done within that time and not feel so exhausted.
Isn’t that something…
