Do you ever feel like life is passing you by so quickly that you just can’t keep up?
Have you felt like you need a pause or slow motion button just to help you stay on track?
I get it, and I want to help.
The last six months, or so, have been some of the hardest months of my life. I keep telling friends that I am looking forward to getting things back to a new normal, but it seems that the new scattered-ness of life is my new normal. When I prayed over my word for 2017 I didn’t realize that it would be my mantra for this year – FORWARD.
About 2 months ago I lost a dear friend. You know her as Mandy, a writer here on The Multi Taskin’ Mom and the author of Worshipful Living. Since her passing I have spent a lot of time reflecting about where I am emotionally and spiritually. I am no where near where I want or need to be. If I were to leave this world as unexpectedly as she did, I want to know that I have left a trail of inspiration and loving words behind. I wouldn’t want a single person to doubt where my soul is heading after I am gone.
This realization inspired me to find a starting point for my journey to become deeper in my spiritual walk.
I am joining in with 3 of my closest friends on the third Thursday of each moth to bring some inspiration to you, to help keep Mandy’s mission alive. More on that at the end of this post.
What have I found as my starting point on this journey forward?
I know that sounds so trite. Isn’t it something that I should be doing each day anyway? Of course it is! But, the truth is, I haven’t been spending my prayer time the way I should. Never mind the fact that there are some days that I may not even utter a real prayer. Sure I will mumble the “thank you for today” before drifting off to sleep, but it is nothing like I should be praying.
While out with my family I came across the book Fervent, by Priscilla Shirer and picked up a copy. This book along with the movie War Room have inspired me to stop being so “luke warm” with my prayer life.
The first night I opened my book I couldn’t put it down. Armed with a highlighter, a pen, and my Prayer Journal, I started writing, taking notes, and jotting down prayers like a crazed woman.
I have been making it a point to be in The Word for some time each night. Writing down scripture and then praying over it has been helpful at keeping the words in my heart.
I am anxious to see where this first step on this journey takes me.
