This week, babysitting has brought along its own set of challenges. Mainly the lack of consistency in my quiet time. I'm so used to waking up and grabbing my Bible of my nightstand and now I can't really do that anymore. I often don't have time till later on in the day which is often really hard. In the morning (if your not too tired or if you don't have to rush) your mind is free to focus and concentrate but later on it's filled with other things, you get distracted and you can't concentrate. Yesterday was one of these days where I couldn't get focused because I knew my mom would be calling me any minute to help with supper.
The other night I woke up nice and warm and comfortable but I really needed to go to the bathroom. Well, seeing it to be very necessary, I dragged myself out of my warm bed to go to the bathroom. When I came back, my bed was cold and so was I and so I had to warm up again. It just got me thinking that often we decide to take breaks from our spiritual life and when we come back we find it cold and need to warm up again. Physically, we need to take a break every now and again but in our Christian walk we need to run with endurance. If we decide to take a break, we come back finding that the fire has gone out and needs to be lighted again. Just a thought although I don't know if it makes any sense at all.
