Those Cards...

Posted By Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

Two weeks ago, I had the idea that I could take those cards from Dive and go through them one at a time, praying over it and listening to see how it should impact my life.

So, when we got our overnight getaway to celebrate My Sweet Baboo's birthday, I took the cards and my journal and picked up the first one.

The gist of the card was that I need to make room daily for time with God.

That was one of my big concerns this summer, when I was spending my lunch hours listening and journaling. I knew when the 40 days were up, I needed to resume the regular lunch;  there's a fellowship amongst all the office ladies that I need to be part of, and it pretty much happens at lunch.  Skipping it for a season is ok...dropping out altogether is not good. So I was concerned that I would not find an alternate time slot.

And, yeah, I didn't.  Here and there, odd moments when I could manage it, but it was managed...not planned.

So the card kind smacked me...both at Dive and two weeks ago.

So I came up with a plan.

Unfortunately, the plan involved getting out of bed early.

Have I mentioned here before how much of a morning person I am NOT?


Last week, I sat down with my journal and thought I would ponder card 2.

And realized I had not yet implemented card 1.

I'm determined not to rush this; I'm not going to card 2 until I have card 1 working in my life.

So...back to the bare facts that, if I'm going to manage a regular quite time with God, I'm going to have to get. up. in. the. cold. dark. morning.

So.  Tomorrow's Monday.

Take 2.

  1. Are you awake? Have you spent your time with God this morning? It's a hard thing to start...

    I started working at the Christian school we have as a part of our church. In order to give mysrlf time to spend with God, I get up at 4:30. It's not the early hour that kills me, it's the going to bed late!
