"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 5:6
Sometimes (especially for mommas) it’s easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the people around us ~ we find that we’re always giving, taking care of kids, preparing dinner for family and sometimes not our own, working overtime at the office, or helping that friend who is struggling. And that’s all good but if we're not careful, we will end up feeling rundown and empty. That’s why we have to take time every day to get filled back up. Our first priority should be taking care of our self and above all, make time to get into the presence of God. Throughout scripture, we see that when we are in God’s presence, there is fullness of joy, fullness of peace, and fullness of victory. In His presence, we are refreshed, renewed and restored and that’s why it’s so important to take time every day to spend time with Him. We have to be diligent to have quiet time with Him so He can fill us back up.
Everyday make it a habit to take time to get alone with God and just say, “God, I love You today. Thank You for my life, for my family, for the opportunities You’ve given me. Lord, I know every good thing comes from You.” When we live like that, with your heart connected to His, we will be refreshed,renewed, restored and filled up for the journey of life ahead!
