Wow, I can't believe it's March already! You've probably been wondering where I've been. It's been two weeks since I last posted but a lot has been going on in those two weeks for sure. If you've learned anything about me from reading this blog, following me on social media, or know me personally you will know I love pouring into others and encouraging them. Well, the truth is if I am completely honest I sorta have been ignoring myself. It is so much easier to take care of others than yourself. The thing is I am in a season where I feel like I am empty or dried up. I keep pouring out and out but in reality, I need to be filled up and poured into myself. Yes, I have a mentor. Yes, I go to church. Yes, I have a prayer life. Yes, I spend time in worship. Yes, I have friends that encourage me. But even with that, I have been feeling disconnected. I want to really dig into my Bible and grow closer to God.
If God brought you to this, He will bring you through it. Wow, I can’t believe it’s already March! Where are the days going? Can you believe we are only one month away from Easter? I feel like the days are getting shorter the older I get. There is so much on my to-do list and not enough time to get everything done. One thing that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is prayer. As you have read in previous posts, one of my passions is prayer and I wanted to get more intentional about it this year.
One of my goals for 2018 is to spend more time in prayer and in spending time with Jesus. Last week I talked about what My Jesus Time looked like and this week I want to talk about something near and dear to my heart. Last week I decided to fast. Now I'm not talking about fasting from food. God has laid on my heart that I need to be more intentional about prayer and spending time with Him this year.
