Moments of Intentional Quiet

Along with the prompt of 31 Days of Writing My Heart, I've wanted to focus on being true to my heart. Many truths were introduced into my life in the last few months that have resonated in an unexpected manner.

The greatest truth I've learned: I need more of His word.

My heart was missing something. A devotional there, a reading here. I'm an avid prayer. But reading His word is something I have lacked in committing to. So, it's in this season, I'm committing myself to changing this aspect of life.

I'm going to be intentional about spending time each day with His word. 

Seven days into a Soul Detox, and my heart is already feeling fuller. Rather than racing through my devotional as I have in the past, I stop to journal the scripture and my reflections. The first two days I was unsure. To be honest, I've never journaled through a devotional.

Saturday brought a more hectic schedule than usual. The business of the weekend got the best of me, of my time. The morning passed without spending any time reading His word, and I could feel that bit of a void it created. I was craving time with God's truths.

Defiant toddlers, hectic work deadlines and unexpected life turns have weighed heavy on my heart, and in just days of creating intentional time with His word much of that weight was lifted. As I commit myself to my truths, I realize all along I was committing myself to His truths and as the days pass I pray he'll continue to fill these lessons.


This is the sixth post in the series 31 Days of Writing My Heart.
