Wow, it’s been awhile. Summers seem to be incredibly busy no matter what stage of life you find yourself. I thought my summers would look a lot different/be slower since I’m now a full-time working adult, but this summer I haven’t stopped.
My life has been consumed with work, free-lancing, renovating my new house, shopping for my house, helping plan weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, planning a mission trip/going on the mission trip, and spending a week in Colorado. Between all of that I have been pretty absent on the blog, but I’m ready to get back to posting.
Do you ever feel like you don’t have enough hours in your day? I guess I’ve been struggling with prioritizing and consistency. My life is a chaotic mess currently. I’ve always had an incredibly neat and tidy room, but the past few months, it looks like a tornado touched down. I used to be so diligent in my quiet time with the Lord..now I’m lucky to pick up my Bible once a week. I’ve become creative – praying and listening to music on my drives, workouts, etc, but I feel a distance from the Lord and I know I’ve chosen to put other things in front of my relationship with Him.
How do you get out of a groove so deep though? I’m committed to all these things and I’m getting less and less sleep and spending less and less time with Jesus. The funny thing is, this was a slow transition. It’s not like I just woke up one day and my life was 10x busier. I slowly added more and more things into my life – all good things, but too many things. How do we purge good things out of our life though? I’m seriously open to any suggestions. The good thing is, I’ve recognized the problem, now to find a solution. I miss those quiet times with Christ. I’ve noticed my fleshly desires have started to consume my mind more and more. I find myself more irritable or more “woe is me” or more selfish. Anyone else struggle in this way? Starting now, I’m going to make some changes. We were created to do life with Christ not bring Him into just some parts of our lives.
