I don't think I have told you but every Thursday night we host a growth group at our house through church. I really love it! Two of our very best church friend couples are there with us (along with some other awesome people) And I am just so grateful to have those friendships! They are still developing but I really enjoy them! And I hope that our friendship continues to deepen! I love the way this group inspires me and motivates me to improve my walk with God. I really want to wake up with God every day. I struggle with that so much. I have to leave my house by 5:45. I like to go to bed around 11pm. Do the math.. it just doesn't add up. :) I am someone who when they should go to bed decides to do 10 last minute things that I didn't get done earlier. I end up going to bed feeling really accomplished, but I end up needing a nap after work.
My point being is my new (going a little over a year) really inspires me to have a closer walk with God. And I am so excited to implement a plan. Considering I have to wake up so early and a lot of my mornings start with me sleeping through my alarm. I may just wake up start off with prayer and read 1 verse. But that is better than getting up, rushing out the door, and praying in the car. I know what you are thinking ... why not go to bed earlier... hey now! One thing at a time... :) At least that is what I am trying to tell myself. I am QUEEN of "I am going to bed at 10:15, no later, I wake up at 4:30, I am going to wake up, pray, read the bible, do yoga, get ready for work, get home, do cardio, shower, make dinner clean my house, take my dog for a walk, edit pictures, crochet, sew, and spend time with my husband and read a book every two days" Yep... that is what I plan out... and here is what I implement "wake, up, go to work, edit pictures" LOL. I am trying to slowly change and realize that I may not be able to do everything in my timeline (wow that is a loaded statement... HELLO INFERTILITY and everything else in my llife)
So do I have a million plans in how I am going to spend more time with God ALL the time? OF COURSE! Am I trying not to be like that and just start with baby steps, one verse a day, after prayer, in the morning... I GUESS. :) Such a struggle not to go CRAZY and then crash and burn and revert back to doing nothing, but clearly that method isn't working... soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I am hopping off the crazy train, and easing my way in.
hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
I am going on a road trip with my sister! GIRL TALK! :)
