Look at this little gem,It’s perfect. Starting a new adventure. It’s perfect for my note taking and prayer journal. Every time I sit down to pray the farthest I get is, hello God thank you. Then my mind just wonders off. I know when I write my prayers down I get a lot further and feel so much better and fulfilled. I can’t wait to fill this up then read it years later. This is all new to me so I’m navigating these water very gently.
This morning I woke up before the kids and went to the kitchen table and read! For like 5 minutes before the baby started crying. Before I started reading I said a prayer asking God to guid me. I found this 30 day scripture reading challenge for praying because one of my main goals with reading the Bible is getting deeper in my prayers. Realized I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself and need to just let everything go and just read and see where he takes me. So that’s what I’m doing.
I was really trying to read today be every time I sat down I would get, “Mom I need you” so tonight when they go to bed I’m going to try again! I’m a little intimidated still but every time I open my bible I get a little less anxious. It came to me to pray and ask God for guidance and confidence to read. I also have some expectation that I need to let go of. So tonight they are going to bed early.
🦋So today I did a thing! For a good 7 years I didn’t believe in the Bible and was against it. I never not believed in God but I just didn’t believe in the Bible. I grew up catholic and prayed every night with my mom and did the church on Wednesday thing. Even was a alter server. Nothing ever really clicked with me and I do not believe in religion at all. I believe in God who created and I believe nature is where I feel him the most. But recently I have felt the pull to read the Bible. I feel like it will deepen my connection to source. So I got one today.🎨
