Two things that I have struggled with doing since becoming a mom is regular devotions and being creative.
I keep making excuse after excuse for not doing devotions. Mainly how I do not have an overabundance of mental energy with a new baby.
And as for not doing anything very creative, it can be pretty hard to find time for anything past keeping me, my husband, and the tiny human alive. ;)
Which is not a good thing. I NEED my time in the Word to stay focused on my LORD. And I NEED time to do something creative to keep my sanity in check.
Or at least somewhat in check... :D
I recently came up with a quick idea to help with both needs. Journaling one verse a day.
I am making it my goal to try and write down one verse of scripture in a journal daily. Or as often as my terrible mom brain allows me to remember...
Following my morning workout, I lay Flynn down for his morning nap, wait until he is actually asleep and done protesting very loudly,and grab my journal, pens, phone, and Bible. I then find a comfy corner, usually the couch or on the floor by the front door, and settle in for a wee bit.
I have the "Bible by Tecarta" app on my phone. And everyday it has a new verse to read. I open the app on my phone, get the verse reference and then find it in my paper Bible.
I read the verse, and often times the entire chapter of that passage. Then I choose what color pens I want to use that day, and write down the featured verse, and doodle a little bit on the page.
And then I am done. Simple, easy peasy way to get in a wee bit of creativity, and much needed time with my LORD. :)
What are some simple quick ways you find to spend with the LORD? How about a creative outlet? Do you a favorite go to for that?
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
