A while ago, I started the Patriarchs Bible study by Beth Moore. I got a little slowed down by doing another Bible study with a local church, and then with our move in November, I never got to finish the last 2 sections. (yes, only tow- I really should have made more of an effort) But as we were unpacking boxes this weekend, I found the book. So my goal this week is to re-read all the previous sections to refresh my memory, and then finish the series. Anyway, I wasn't typing all that to just let you know what a slacker I am. It was just interesting to me how I let other things get in the way of finishing that study. Other studies, duties, and more snuck in between me and that study time with God. Then I got to thinking how often that happens in my life. I can start something and soon there is something else that needs my attention at that moment, and the rest is forgotten. Could it be that my mommy memory is out the door, or is this an attack on my soul and mind that is seeking our God? I know that when I start my day with God, I do better and when I have my study time somewhere in the day, I feel better. When I don't -I find myself being short with everyone and messing up on everything. Is anyone else out there like me- or am I just plain old weird? Anyway I want to challenge all of you (and myself) to strive everyday to spend that moment with God, whether it be a long time or a short "stolen moment" to seek Him in your day. It can make a world of difference in your life and in others.
