This was a very stressful week with the new schedule and Jordan gone more than normal. But when I woke up this morning at 5:30 am all I could think about was giving my mind, body, and soul a recharge. And the ONLY way I know how to do that completely is by connecting with God.
I was raised in a Christian household with church every Sunday morning and youth group activities all year round. But I always took my relationship with God as a when I wanted kind of relationship. It wasn’t until my mid 20’s when I reconnected with God that I realized it wasn’t a relationship I could live without.
I started to really build my own connection with God and make him a priority in my life. And I found that because it was a choice I made to learn more and do better, and it wasn’t my parents forcing me to, that I was able to lean on God in a way I never had before.
I am in no ways perfect and I never will be, but as I sat there this morning with my hot cup of coffee and my bible, I was reminded of how much I love God. And I actually was able to read my bible without interruption this morning which is rare with my two boys.
And now almost two hours after waking up this morning I am recharged and reminded of God’s love for my family and myself. And I am ready to take on the day and the weekend. With God by my side I can do it all.
