Every Mom knows that being a Mom means life is busy and hectic. It does not matter if you are a working mom, stay-at-home mom, corporate mom, or a homeschooling mom; if you are a mother, you are a busy woman. However, no matter how busy our lives get, we cannot forget the most important thing in life: Our Daddy God.
Nothing matters more.
Spending time with God does not need to be this super spiritual micro managed batch of time that is so over scheduled we get no relationship out of it. Allow God to be a part of every little moment of your day, and you will be closer to Him than a rushed 15 minutes of “scheduled” time.
God wants friendship and relationship…
God wants to be at the top of our list…
God wants to be our priority…
He does not want to be jotted into an already busy day when we “get the chance”.
If we are too busy for time with God, then we are far busier than He ever created us to be, and we have missed the whole point.
He should be our everything.
When He becomes our center and reason, everything else falls into place–just like when we tithe 10% of our income, and He uses the rest to provide. When we make HIM a priority, and include Him in every aspect of our lives, time works itself out because we are in proper balance!
More God=Less Stress
Making God Time All Day Every Day
- Talk to Him. Be in constant communication with Him throughout your day. Talk to Him at the stop light, while showering or blow drying your hair. Include Him in your decisions. Ask Him to help you. Thank Him for that great parking space. Remember: every good thing comes from above. Take the time to notice and express thankfulness!
- Read His Word. This does not have to be hard. Include the kids. While sitting at breakfast, have one of them read a psalm or proverbs, then discuss it as you are getting ready for your day. If they cannot read, you can take a minute to read one or two verses. If you can’t maybe you need to sacrifice, and get up 10 minutes earlier.
- Memorize His Word. Make this a family affair. Memorize one verse a week as a family. Knowing the Word is vital to a victorious walk. You can make it fun too. Be creative.
- Do a Bible study. This is important. If your church has a woman’s Bible study, do your best to participate. Otherwise do your own. Even if you can only actually do the study 2 times per week, at least you are committing something to God and making your spiritual life a priority!

We need to realize that spiritual growth is extremely important. We must be growing. Look at it this way, would you go weeks without eating or drinking? No. In this society we have a hard time missing ONE meal. Why then, do we starve our spirits??
Moms, you need to live “the walk” out loud before your children. In these last days we need to be raising up a generation that will burn brightly for Jesus… If we do not show them the right way, you can be certain the world will pick up the slack!
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.
– Psalm 37:4-5
Lord, thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the gift of my children and the time that I have with them. Help me to prioritize my time better, and make You, my beloved King, the most important aspect of my day. Help me to walk this out before my children, so that they will know HOW to know You and build good habits for their own lives. I love You, Lord, and I want my children to see my love for You in my words AND actions. Thank You for loving and helping me. In Jesus’ Mighty and Loving Name, amen.
