How To Find Time With God Through Motherhood

Motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is exhausting. You feel stretched in so many areas. You want to be the best mother you can possibly be, and you know that includes finding time with your Heavenly Father. But, you see the time flitting away and wonder how in the world you can fit it all in. At the end of the day, you drag your exhausted body into bed and whisper a quick prayer before falling asleep. You want more. You want to spend more time with Him, but how?

Today I am blogging over at “Me and My Soldierman,” where I share 5 ways you can find time with God through the busyness of motherhood. I hope you’ll head on over and join me! Below is a sneak peek preview of that post:

You’re lying in bed and streams of sunlight seep through the blinds and stroke your face. You smile and stretch. Looking at the clock, you are happy to see that you have an abundance of time to spend in God’s Word. You reach over and grab your Bible and journal from the nightstand . . .

Oh! Not how your morning goes? I imagine you’re sitting there thinking, “WHO is she talking about?!”

Let’s try this again . . .

You’re lying in bed and the sound of little, scurrying feet jolts you awake. “Please, Lord, please let it be at least 7 a.m.,” you moan. You peek out from under the covers to discover the clock glaring 6:45 back at you. You groan and yank the blankets up over your head. When your little nugget comes into your room, you try to coax him to go back to bed for another fifteen minutes. He doesn’t comply. Exhausted and in desperate need of caffeine, you drag yourself out of bed and scuffle to the kitchen, while your wide-awake wonder follows closely behind, chatting away. You do all you can to not get upset as you try to clear the cobwebs out of your head and start mindfully going through your to-do list for the day. Wait, what day is it?

Does that sound a little bit more like your day? I don’t know about you, but I find that being a mom can make it very difficult to find that special time with God each day . . . {read more}
