Once upon a time there was a Mom with 4 kids who were quiet as mice in the morning.
They all sat together and had morning Bible time and everyone loved it.
No one complained and everyone sat and studied their Bible’s while birds were chirping
just outside the window.
Aaaahhh! Such a beautiful picture of complete serenity!
Not at all true to reality though.
Nowadays, I can usually get in my Bible time while the kids are still in bed.
If they wake up they are self sufficient enough to fend for themselves.
They aren’t always quiet because, well, they ARE siblings!
Fights seem to be an inevitable part of our mornings!
So, I parent a little and then return to devotions.
When the kids were little, if I didn’t get up before them I had two choices:
- Skip Bible time altogether or;
- When they have Bible in school make it my time too.
Just know, God does understand.
He sees those tiny hands and feet.
You are in ministry just by caring for their daily needs.
It may not seem or feel glamorous sometimes, but it is vital.
Stay encouraged knowing you are feeding little souls for Jesus.
You are the biggest testimony to them.
Just keep trying, trying, and trying!
That is a beautiful testimony!
Now, here are some books I feel have helped to simplify my morning Bible time.
I get easily distracted and they help me keep on task.
They will work with whatever Bible book or study you are doing.
I use both these books every morning!
I really enjoy how you can color them or just leave them as is and they are still visually
I also love the verses with each day.
Sometimes, we make these things too complicated!
Keep it simple and focused on God!
