I don’t always get to spend hours of in prayer and Bible reading. Even though I am a Pastor’s Wife, I am still have the same responsibilities and demands on my time as many of you do. Carving out long quiet periods with God is not easy when you have little ones and they get up multiple times in the night and are up at the crack of dawn! (God…why couldn’t you given me at least one child that loved to sleep as much as I do?!)
I am trying to remember Quality even when the Quantity of time isn’t available. My husband loves the YouVersion App and I have really found it to be encouraging and helpful in daily time in God’s Word. My favorite part is the verse of the day. Right away in the morning I get a verse, and it always happens to be perfect for my day! (coincidence? I think NOT!)
This mornings verse…
I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my please for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live. ~ Psalm 116:1-2
I read this verse and chuckled a little to myself realizing how selfish I am. I love God because of the things he has done for me. God loves me despite the fact that I have done nothing for Him!!! WOW!
And not only that… But I can KEEP calling on him for the rest of my life!
