Crawling Away From the Crowd
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
One glance at my calendar sent a shiver down my spine. Four kids, five schedules and one mom did not a balanced equation make. I had so much to do I thought I needed a running start on my day. I tossed a couple of “bless my families” into the air, left my Bible on the nightstand and leapt into a crowded life.
My busy day bubbled with crises of my own making.
My razor-sharp responses nicked around the edges of my daughters’ hearts. Regret stung mine.
My husband’s request met with irritation. I thought of him as an inconvenience.
…And it was only 10:00 am.
“Mommy, did you have time with Jesus this morning?”
Was it that obvious? Even a two year old could ferret me out. I’d tried to sprinkle a little Jesus on top of my crowded day.
Like bran on my cereal, dusted Him on my day and hoped He’d miraculously keep me regular. Balanced. On an even keel.
Only I can’t sprinkle a little Jesus on a crowded life.
He is the giver of my morning.
He is the author of my day.
Is your day a little crowded? Why not crawl off with Jesus before you run off into your day.
