Devotions Are Lacking

downloadI think being pregnant I’ve kinda lost some of my amazing mojo. Yes, I do indeed have amazing mojo! Well, I did until now. Right now my brain feels like mush.  There are parts of my body that ache that I never knew existed and the idea of sleeping is sounding great, even at noon! With that being said, I have to tell you my devotions are lacking. I’m not excusing myself.  It’s just something that I’m struggling with now.

To me, it would seem this is the time to be more and more into God’s word. Being a new parent I need the Lord’s wisdom and guidance as I prepare for this little one. It’s not that I haven’t been praying or haven’t been attending church; it’s just that trying to sit down and really research God’s Word has been hard. I feel like a slacker, a tired old slacker to be precise.

Thankfully, the Lord is forgiving, patient, and kind. I know that where I lack in devotions He is still with me and helping me.

Daniel 9:9 – “The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him;”

Has anyone felt the way that I do? As I struggle to pick up my devotions again I am reminded of how important being in God’s Word is.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17 NLT

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do.”

As I continue to work at bettering my time with God, I know that the only way our family will survive and our newest member of the family will grow spiritually is through God’s Word.
