This morning I woke up at 3 a.m. super excited. No, we weren’t heading out on vacation. Instead, I was excited because I could spend time with God without anyone interrupting.
I’m not usually a middle of the night Bible reader, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do. With company at my house (and a toddler!), life is busy and I often don’t get time with God during the day. Boy, can I feel it when that happens. I feel drained, and the only thing that charges me up is time with Him.
This morning as I was reading my Bible and praying I realized something … I can pray about making time with Him. I realized it’s okay for me to ask God to help me carve out quiet time during my day. I can pray He will 1. Give me the time, and 2. That I will be diligent to spend time with Him when the opportunity arises. I don’t have to figure it out on my own. I won’t get more “points” if I come up with the solution myself. Instead, I found myself praying, “Lord, help me make time for You.”
It’s a simple prayer, but one I know He will answer.
