Once upon a time this was my favourite view for spending time with God. It is at the camp I grew up attending and working at. I could find a quiet place anywhere on the Island and it was just God and I. It was so peaceful and you could feel God’s presence all around you.
This was my view the other day while trying to read my Bible and do my devotions about being more Spirit filled.
Being a mom and trying to spend alone time with God is hard. As often as I can I escape to a coffee shop and put my headphones in and that is my new spot with God. It is no water view with the peace of the woods but I can ignore the people around me and spend some quality time in Scripture.
But there are those days that I know I won’t be able to get out of the house.
And there are those days that my sanity and my soul cry out for God amongst the chaos of table dancing toddlers and a clingy baby and I just have to push through and read some encouraging Words and read Galatians 5:22-23 again and again:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and self-control.
If you are struggling to find that time with God amongst the chaos of everyday life I encourage you to try harder. We need that time with God in order to show our children how important it is. In order for us to grow in our own personal Spiritual walk, and in order for us to be a better witness for those around us.
