And I began to notice I was having more and more of a desire to just veg out in front of the TV. After writing this post, it only took a few days of not being in the Word for my heart to start changing right back again.
It made me realize how much I need to be in God's Word every day. I need to wholly rely on Him to just get me through the day!
With my whole heart I seek you;
let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119:10, 11 esv
For me it works best to get up before the rest of the family to do my devotions. This isn't always easy, (I'm pretty bleary eyed until I get my first cup of coffee) but it is well worth it. If I don't do it first thing, I never seem to get around to it.
How do you find time to spend in God's Word? Is there a specific time or place that works best for you? Do you use a devotional or just read your Bible? Do you have a specific devotional that you would recommend? Leave a comment! I'd love to hear what works best for you.
