Stealing Moments.........


Tis' the season to be super busy! I don't think I am the only person that feels the pressure of the season am I? But I just had to share this ... Yesterday I was sitting on the couch folding my ever Large mound of clean cloths while my 2 littlest ones were happily playing on the floor in front of me and listening to some Christmas music on Pandora. Bryce had his trains and cars out and happily zipping all over the floor between the Living room dining room and Kitchen. All the while Little Miss Meya was hugging a soft baby doll happily laughing at her Brother zipping around her. Then she crawls up to me ( like she does soo much, shes my little attached one!) and reaches up for me and I pick her up and she layes her little sweet head on my shoulder ( this makes me tear up remembering yesterday) and she holds on tight and says ahh and we stayed like that for probably about a minute and and she lifts her head and wiggles down and carries on with her dolly at my feet and it had me thinking about those sweet moments and precious they are. Then I thought about my relationship with God this time of year and how I need to consciously steal moments with him all through out the day. How I want to live and breath God's word but not only for me selfishly but also for our children. I want so desperately to dig into God's word all Throughout my day not only in my "quite time" but all day. This time of year get so incredibly hectic and crazy and I need to stop and Steal precious moments with our Savior!

Matthew 11:28 says Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest

Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV "But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Jeremiah 24:7 NIV I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

God's word is filled with such scriptures that just bring such life to me. I feel like when I'm in thr presnse of the Lord in my quite time it helps me become the Wife I want to be, the Mom I strive to become and the friend and women God desires for me. My favorite verse that just speacks to me so much and just makes me want to dive in to his word all day through out my day is Hosea 6:3 NKJV Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
It just really has me thinking since yesterday and this verse just litterally was like a fire cracker in my heart and I felt like it jump started me to live out those precious moments with God like we have with our sweet little ones! God I just pray right now to keep this desire and spark going in my heart all day to seek you and your word through out the day and not just in the mornings...

Stacey... Thank you so much for that post. I know my life has been so crazy lately and I often feel like I'm failing miserably at most of what I do and what my responsibilities are. Thank you for reminding me that God is my source of strength and that I need to seek Him out first before I can even think about handling any other aspect of my life. :)
