It never ceases to amaze me how God uses some of the most unlikely ways to encourage me.
The other day I was searching the internet for something. I clicked one of the link results, and ended up at a blog post titled “Encouragement for mothers of young children”.
God’s timing was perfect. That’s not remotely what I was searching for, but was a nice reminder for me anyway.
My quiet time lately has been a struggle. For a long time, my favorite time of day to spend with the Lord has been first thing in the morning. It still is. Now that Caleb is getting older though, he is becoming more and more of an early riser. It’s been a struggle for me to get up early enough to be able to have my quiet time before either of the boys get out of bed. It is definitely motivation to get in bed at a reasonable time at night though!
What really stood out to me though was a comment the author made about how we can still have our quiet time, even if it’s at odd hours. My quiet time never seems to be the same if it’s not first thing in the morning, but it doesn’t have to be any less sweet at another time of day.
I’m still going to aim to be up before the kids, though I’m wondering how that’s going to work once Little Miss makes her appearance. Either way though, the reminders in that blog post were wonderful.
If you’d like to read the post, it is here. I don’t know anything about the blog author and haven’t read any of her other posts, but that particular post really spoke to me.
