Mama’s I know some of you who were accustomed to reading my blogs weekly may feel some kind of way about my sporadic posts and that’s cool, but let me tell you why they’ve become so sporadic. On February 25, 2014 I started journaling and meditating/praying in the mornings at 5:30 a.m. I wanted to have a better prayer life and really be connected to my power source (Jesus Christ) so that I could really grow as a wife, mother, daughter and friend. For those who know me I am not a morning person so this was a big task for me. Did I wake up every morning at 5:30 a.m., nope, but I did not quit, get down on myself or give up on my journey. I stayed the course.
I know as Mama’s we become so consumed with our daily lives, being a wife, Mama, coworker, friend, etc. It is so important to take time out of your day to “plug in” to your power source. I don’t mean the “quickie” prayer that you say every morning, although some prayer is better than no prayer. I am talking about taking a small chunk of time to be still, no phone, TV, kids, husband, noise, NOTHING, but you and God. It amazes me how much lighter I feel and how I can really hear God speaking to me throughout the day, when I am interacting with my kids he gives me the right words. If my husband and I are having an issue he tells me how to handle it his way and not my way.
Mama’s I can’t tell you how to live your life, but trust me when I say you are not that busy. We make time for anything we “want” to do, shopping, trips, concerts, etc. But its strange how we can’t make the sacrifice to take time out to seek God’s will and plan for our life. I like writing so for me journaling was easy and it also allowed me to reflect on my growth, which is awesome. When it’s time for me to rise and shine I’m not all pansies and butterflies, but I know that this is a chance to “plug in” so I get the armor I need to handle my day.
Mama’s I started this blog to encourage mothers, like me who felt overwhelmed at times, who were frustrated with their husbands and kids at times and life in general. Please do not feel I have abandoned you by not posting weekly. I am now posting what I am led to post, not just posting to have something on my blog. I challenge you to start your day off by getting “plugged in”. You may have to start small, but that’s ok, the first step is always the hardest to make. I encourage you to start and stay the course; you’ll find the reward is so worth it. Happy Hump Day!
Don’t just live your life, Enjoy it!
