I've been overwhelmed and anxious recently... realizing that I'm in over my head when it comes to my over-scheduled days.
Most things I've been doing are GOOD-- regular exercise, taking time for kids homework/AWANA verse memorization, meeting with small groups in christian fellowship, etc.
But one key priority I've let slip away for awhile. It's the time I should be spending being STILL and knowing God.
I've been blessed to have little retreats over the last few years where I take time to listen for God while I'm I'm located in a scenic and quiet location of God's creation. Unfortunately, these once a year visits cannot grow my relationship with God enough. I would most benefit my walk with Him by taking time every day. At home. Among the busyness.
So my goal is to find a bit of time each day to BE STILL. To add to my current prayers during chaos and reading of the word while other things are going on. I believe I need to have complete quiet to really hear from God.
