I returned from the grocery store about an hour ago and as I was about to dive into the rest of my night: cleaning, laundry, planning the week, give with JOY, etc. But I realized that I felt a little heavy. Not heavy like I ate five cookies last night because I did, but that's besides the point; I felt heavy in the sense that I really didn't feel like myself.
It was an amazing weekend surrounded by amazing friends and time with the husband, but I realized that I didn't make quiet time a priority. I didn't start my weekend mornings with quiet prayer and time in the Word -- Y I K E S!
So, I write this post tonight as a journal entry in a promise to myself to keep my blog about my R E A L life. To share with you my joys, sorrows, the good and the bad! Tonight, I wanted to express my weakness and selfishness in "my time" vs. intentional time with my God who makes me strong - right now I feel weak! But the more time I sit outside on my balcony with the Word and my prayers, the more I begin to feel that unspeakable J O Y that He promises! Spending time in His Word is necessary daily.
Goodnight and here's to a week starting on the right foot!
