Day to day there seems so much to be done – homeschooling, caring for the littles, cooking, disciplining, cleaning, being a wife, friend, mother, and the list goes on…
There are bills to pay, grocery lists to write, meals to plan, doctor appointments to make, bathtubs to scrub, and dishwashers to load and run.
I have voices in my head about all these things – but I also have the voice of a quiet Father in my ear prompting me to spend time with Him. How can I do this when my mind and thoughts always seem to be on something else? Am I the only one who struggles with the balance? I begin to pray, then get called away to tend to the cries of a child. I pick up my Bible and a boy wakes up for the day. I reflect on who God is and what He’s done in my life, and the phone rings.
So I challenge myself to find the balance in day-to-day life to be who I need to be and still live through a God-focused lens. I want closeness. I want my first and foremost thought to be of God and His sovereignty. I have a hunger for His word, and to encounter Him in prayer, but the voices are so loud….it’s almost as if His is drowned out.
