I got a very late start to my quiet time this morning.
I hate that!
It makes my day ‘off’ for the rest of the day. Anybody feelin me??
The thing is…hubby is out of town, and I don’t sleep very well when he is gone. It was almost 2:30 before my mind would allow me to settle in for the night, and only after I rubbed myself down with Lavender and Stress Away.
I would have grabbed those oils earlier but, truthfully, I didn’t want to. I’m a scaredy cat when he is gone and I imagine all kinds of noises and burglars and fires and all kinds of crazy stuff that could happen, and I wanted to be awake should any of it happen so I could RUN!! lol
Ludicrous, I know. 😑🤦🏻♀️
But as my mind was running 100 miles an hour this morning thinking of the million things I had to do, I walked by this tiny wooden plaque that was gifted to me reminding me that there is ALWAYS time to stop and pray.
I will not rush through my quiet time, and I will savor it.
It is THE most important priority of EVERY day.
Afterwards, I’ll prioritize my list making sure to tackle the most important first and leave the rest for another day.
I’m glad hubby was only gone one day, but had he not, the little plaque that stopped my thoughts reminded me that “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Psalm 18:2)
Fear is a liar.
And I shall not be afraid.
Now… on to diffusing some Frankincense and Lavendar as I soak up God’s word!
