Sick of the snow? Me too.

But when I see it I am reminded of a God who controls the universe. Surely he can take care of whatever problems we are facing today.

  • I’m having trouble focusing on God. I choose to ignore God because I’m afraid to give him control. I struggle to do devotions daily. When I pray my mind wanders and I’m constantly thinking of everything else that needs done. I like your comment about taking my to do list with me when I pray and praying that God will have control about what I do for the day!

  • What distracts me… Usually the kids, extreme tiredness (unexplained insomnia &/or problems sleeping due to pain – so my sleep schedule is VERY messed up), and the daily pain I’ve been living with the past 16 years… I’m a sahm & my routine the last few years has been to get up (whatever time that may be, due to the problems mentioned above), turn on my pc, grab some breakfast/brunch, sit down at my pc & start reading the e-devotionals I receive on a daily basis (my favorite being “In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley” from crosswalk). On the weekends it’s hard to keep up with that routine, as the kids often want to talk to me the moment I get up… LOL

    At the beginning of the year, as I was trying to come up with this year’s new year resolutions, I decided I needed to change things up. I decided that not only would I continue to focus on improving my health & decreasing my pain levels naturally, but to spend more time concentrating on the e-devotionals I receive. I feel like I’ve just been reading them, not really absorbing them… So now I spend more time looking at each one (not just reading quickly through it so I can get about my day), highlighting the important parts of each devotional that speaks to me that day. I then make a summary of each one, change the subject line to reflect that, and then save them & forward them to my teenager (as my desire is to get him thinking & more into the Word as well). While this has been helpful, deep down I feel like something is still missing (maybe I’m not spending enough time talking to & hearing from God?), so I’m hoping your offer might help me with that.
