Why is it that I can stay up til midnight sewing, decorating, or reading a good book, but can’t stay up more than 10 minutes of praying to my Heavenly Father before I fall asleep??
Why is it that I can find time in my day to wash dishes, do the laundry, clean my house…and curl up with my favorite magazine, but not find time to spend 15 minutes studying my Bible and growing closer to God??
Why is it that I so desire a more intimate relationship with the Lord but don’t always want to put the time in to get there??
Why is it that I know these earthly things hold no value, and these pleasures are short lived…yet I have such a hard time keeping my eyes focused on heaven??
Lord, I pray that you would give me a heart that yearns for you, that desires to spend more time with you. I desire to be more intimate with you Lord and keep my mind on heavenly things, but I fail so often. Forgive me for my complacency and use me how you see fit. Provide opportunities for me to further the heavenly kingdom and equip me with the sword of the Spirit and the breastplate of righteousness to fight off the darkness all around me. I love you Jesus, thank you for your grace and forgiveness!
