I want to be transparent today and let you all know that I have been struggling with the one year plan and we’re only one month in, well not even. I committed to Mondays because I thought that would keep me accountable throughout the week but I have not been consistent with my readings. Why am I telling you this? I want to be transparent with you because you deserve my honesty. I decided to do this joint blog because I thought it would help me to grow in Christ but I have to confess that I haven’t been wholeheartedly doing the work. As James 2:14-26 explains, faith without works is dead. So I am deciding to work, to commit to a timeframe to seek God and to pray as David did. This week I plan to read in the mornings and seek God first, literally. It means that I will have to get up earlier than my son and husband but I know that spending time with God will not only help me as an individual but also as mother and wife. So I received a wake up call this week within the reading this week. I am grateful for this opportunity and I hope that if you have felt like I did and have been a bit lackluster and less consistent with your reading, remember why you wanted to start the one year plan and begin again.
Lord, thank you for your mercy, thank you for reminding me that I chose this journey. I want to do the work and I want to truly seek you today and always. Amen.
Have a Great Week,
