A Wife Loved Like The Church

Putting God First

Posted on: November 4, 2010

I’ve been challenging myself lately to stay connected to God through actively reading His Word. Being a mom, it’s easy it let my relationship with God take a backseat. The girls wake up during my morning quiet times, I need to do chores during naps, and by the end of the day I realize I’ve spent no time with God.

This month I’m reading through the book of Psalm. Start to finish. This means reading 4-6 chapters a day {not always an easy task!}. It’s only week one and I’ve been faithful, making it a priority in my day. Part of me thought that in doing this my week would go much smoother {girls acting like angels, house clean, dinner making itself} but it’s been the opposite. My house is dirty, the girls are coming off their travel highs and dinner, sadly, has yet to make itself. But, and that’s a big but, my attitude about it all is so much calmer. Sure it bothers me, but in a oh-man sorta way, not a I-can’t-handle-it sorta way. Being immersed in the Word reminds me of what’s important – my relationship with Christ, my family and my friends.

This newest adventure just might be the best one I’ve had in a while! I can’t wait to see how God reveals Himself to me this month.

That’s awesome, Sarah! I love Psalms (although there are certain ones that can be tough to be through). Are you going to count Psalm 119 as one psalm?

I’m contemplating doing the Bible in 90 days reading that starts up in January. It’s a little intimidating, but I know it would be AWESOME.

I don’t know about other reading loans for Psalms in 30 days, but mine has me reading 118 & 119 on the same day. I thought about doing the 90 day plan, but missed the cutoff to finish before the end of the year. Maybe we should try it together come the new year?

Love this! What a great idea! And I love how it’s already obvious to you how God’s Word is LIVING in your life.

Thanks for loving the Lord! It makes my job a whole lot easier. You are also a inspiration to me as well.

Ahhh, Thanks for the excellent reminder and challenge. I think I’ll do the same thing, read Psalms in one month.
Thaak you!!
