Finding Moments with God
As a mom, it is challenging to find some quiet time to just "be" with God. While I am constantly in conversation with Him throughout the day, I still really need that focused time with Him; something more in depth. He always refreshes me. I used to scoff at the idea of getting "just five (or ten) minutes" with God because I thought, "Well, that's not enough! God deserves more of our time then a mere 10 minutes!"
But I've come to learn, ten minutes is better than nothing, and ten minutes several times throughout the day can really keep me refreshed and focused in my daily life. It's not just about "getting in time with God", it's about meeting with Him because I need to. I can't do anything apart from Him, and sometimes meeting with Him doesn't need to be all about asking Him for something, but simply glorifying Him for who He is. Recognizing what He's done for me, just in those day to day moments. Everyday graces. Everyday joy.
Devotion for Moms
Jaimie Bowman has created a lovely, focused devotional just for moms who need those minutes throughout the day to just focus on God. These are specifically tailored for moms and our unique situation as being mothers. We struggle with various challenges, such as balance, feeling overwhelmed, guilt, exhaustion and the list goes on.
Jaimie begins each devotion with a passage of Scripture she invites you to look up and read. It's an illustration or example of some of the issues we may face as moms and how we can see our challenges in a new light.
Each devotion ends with a prayer and questions for reflection.
