“Give God minutes of silence and moments of praise, and allow His wisdom to penetrate your heart and direct everything that concerns you”. Excerpt from my women’s devotional this morning. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
Saturday Mornings – Devotions
Most Saturdays, I get up before the others – I then spend some quiet time alone with God before I begin my day. I was up super late Friday night and while I still got up somewhat early Saturday, one of the littles got up around the same time.
Minutes of Silence & Moments of Praise
Exercise, bathroom cleaning, shower, breakfast. . . coffee in hand I was about to hop on Instagram when I remembered I needed to connect with God. There’s no written rule that says you have to make time for God at a certain time. However, I personally find that when I make Him a priority, He directs my way. Since my Bible was upstairs, I simply used my phone & 3-Minute Devotional for Women. “Give God minutes of silence & moments of praise”. Verse taken from Colossians 1:27
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
I had so much decluttering I wanted to do that day so I could put some stuff out on trash pick-up day. Yet taking just a few moments to first give all my concerns to God truly did wonders. I got a ton done and even a tiny little nap in the evening (tired from up late and working all day).
Here’s a Quick Summary from what I learned in that moment
Moms and homemakers, if you find yourself too busy and falling behind in your endeavors, I encourage you to take time from your day to just give it all to God. Go before Him in silence, praise Him for His wonderful works in your life. You will be amazed to see what a few minutes dedicated to the ONE who can direct you will do for you. You give him 5 minutes, He’ll stretch your 5 minutes to an hour or two more for you to get things done. The great Missionary George Muller who ran an orphanage was also known for his prayer life. He often found himself on his knees giving God one hour of his time and was amazed to see God do wonders as a result.
I can testify of this from my own personal experiences. I’ve seen God do it for me. Yet sometimes I forget and want to get all the things done right now. Or I forget to pray when my mind feels rather confused. God knows it all and He’s waiting for you to come to Him. Grab a copy of my 3-Minute Devotions for Women here.
