I am linking up with my friend, Mom's The Word to participate in her Monday meme, "Making Your Home Sing Monday." It's a day when we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home. If you would like to join in, click here.
For the last couple of weeks, my home has been singing since we've been on "schedule" with school. They say if you do something consistently for a certain amount of time, it will become habit, or second nature.
Now, that could be for something good, and/or even bad.
I've always been a procrastinator. If any of my friends or family is reading this right now, they're nodding their head in agreement! I don't know why it is, but I love the challenge (so I tell myself) of getting things done at the last minute. I know..NOT A GOOD HABIT! This is probably why I'm making such a big deal about keeping up with our schedule this year.
So, last week, we were still moving along just fine, but I also want to make some adjustments from here on out. I'm finding myself rushing through my devotions just so I have time to do other things before the kids wake up. If I wake myself up earlier, I won't be trying to fit in my devotion time at the last minute. Because, once they get up, forget about it. I won't get that precious time back.
I want my time with the Lord to have substance. I don't want to go through the motions just so I can say I had quiet time with Him. I want to soak in all He has for me, and not just get it over with. I don't want to have the attitude that it's just another chore that I have to mark off of my list. Without Him, my day would be messed up. Well, sometimes it is, but I need Him to get me through it.
So, to make my home sing this week (and every week after), I'm going to spend quality time with the Lord. I know that when I put Jesus first, and and keep my eyes on Him, the less I will be focused on the little things that try to trip me up.
