Let’s admit it girls. Some days, weeks, months or seasons get so busy we may forget to check in with God consistently. I know as a mom, if I’m not conscious about how I’m spending my time, prayer and devotion just might escape me. Not good. But we are human. Sometimes we get caught up in the rush of life that we limit our relationship with God to a few minutes here and there just to check it off the to-do list. Done. But you and I both know when we put God on the to-do list, life seems to get a SUPER crazy. Out of whack. And when the dust settles, we look at how we have put God on a shelf like a book. The thing I like about our God is that He knows and He will definitely nudge us to remind us when we are drifting away.
I keep telling you that I’m working on being calendar driven-some days are better than others. What is important is that we carve out meaningful time with God. Maybe you don’t know where to start and honey that is ok as long as you start. Or in my case restart. The time we spend with God has be intentional and consistent as it helps us draw closer to Him, grow in our faith, and experience everlasting peace and joy in Him.
There are many ways to spend time with Him-prayer, reading His word, singing His praises, joining a women’s group or even sharing His goodness with others. If you feel that you are drifting away or need quick ways to keep your faith in check, how about this:
- Set aside some time each day to read a devotional or simply open the bible and read it. There are a million devotionals online and in print that are connected to God’s word and His principles for life.

- Spend the first 5 minutes of your day in prayer and giving thanks to God for His many blessings. What a great way to get your day going. But… if the first 5 minutes does not work for you (not a morning person like me), be sure to carve out some quiet time throughout the day-on your lunch break, when the kiddos are napping, when the household is sleeping. You get it.
- Share your faith and testimonies of your experiences with others. Not only will you inspire someone else but you will be reminded of just how good God is to you. You can do this by joining a group online or in your church or posting your blessings instead of your messiness. Doing so is a great way to stay connected to the Master and a way to get people connected to Him.
Maybe you are not in a dry season in your faith. Or maybe you know someone who is. Whatever it may be, I would love to hear from you on ways you keep your faith in check. Leave a comment, like, & share. I’m sure it will inspire others 😉
Remember, it’s a faith journey y’all. No matter where you are in the hustle of life, you got to have faith!
