But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. --2 Peter 3:18
Create in me, Lord, a teachable spirit, that I might grow in grace and knowledge of you. Help me to make the time and to put forth the effort that it takes to know you in the study and prayerful contemplation of your Word.
Take time--make time-- today to sit and truly study God's Word. Hear Him in the scriptures He left for us, the very words that speak His heart to us. Sit, perhaps with pen in hand, and grow in the knowledge of the Lord.
Motherhood can feel like the loneliest vocation in the world. Surrounded by children, who frequently bring us to our knees, both literally and figuratively, we can be overwhelmed by isolation. Mothers need community. We can be community for one another. We can encourage on another and hold each other accountable. If you like these short devotions, please share the image and send another woman here. And when you're here, please take a moment to pray with another mother who is visiting. Leave a comment and when you do, pray for the woman whose comment is just above yours. Just a moment--blessed--will begin to build community.
I like to pray when I run in the morning. Often, I listen to Divine Office and pray Morning Prayer or the Office of Readings. Then, I just take up a conversation with God. I'd love to pray for you! Please leave your prayer requests below and we can pray for each other, no matter how we spend our morning prayer time. Meet me back here tomorrow and I'll share the ponderings from my #morningrun.
