A Quiet Morning

I currently have a sense of a loss of control in my life. My head has been real scatter brain lately. I thought this feeling may be normal for us Moms in the dog days of summer - the few weeks before school starts up again. You know - the kids staying up late, eating dinner whenever we are hungry or just plain having no structure to our days.

I've let things just go...

I need to get back some control. I need to get some schedule going soon. I need to have a plan before the day begins.

Early this morning all was quiet. Jim had left for work and the kids were still sleeping (those late nights do have their rewards)

Then God spoke to me. I needed to read my bible.

God desires a relationship with me. I can't take the summers off with Him. It amazes me that I can so easily get wrapped up into the little things in life so easily. I worry about small things: grocery budgets, my husband's schooling, the trip to Disney World, my step son moving out (and his farewell party), and even my daughter completing his summer to do list. These things can be important and should not be ignored; however, my relationship with Jesus Christ must come first, always.

So in my quiet time this morning I opened my bible and spoke with God. He brings such peace into my life. He is always waiting to hear from me. He places my heart gently to where it needs to be. He reboots me :)

Let me share with you my favorite bible verse.

Matthew 28:15
So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

the question is... why is this so difficult some mornings?

What a great reminder! How about a post about why that's your favorite verse.

I stumbled onto your blog - and have throughly enjoyed it! Thank you for your honest sharing and your honest reminder that our relationship with our Father doesn't get a "summer vacation"!
