Physically it has been my first real taste of realizing I am not as young as I used to be, downsizing from a one bedroom apartment to one bedroom takes it tolls on the body.
Emotionally, leaving my home of 22 years takes it tolls as well, missing some of the freedoms, feeling as though I may have left me behind.
Spiritually, trying to keep the same routine in a new environment simply was not working.
Through www.biblegateway.com I was presented with a 40-Day Prayer Challenge from Max Lucado and his book “Before Amen”.
I didn’t fit it into my normal devotions I let it be my devotions in hopes of getting back to my normal rhythm. Each day we began with the prayer below, read one Scripture and another short prayer. Truly all probably takes less than 5 minutes. It has been most refreshing and reviving....turns out I didn't leave me anywhere, slowly I am coming around to that routine that I love so, beginning each day with One I truly do love. And all I needed was to begin each day with sweet praise and petition:
Father, You are good.
I need help.
They need help.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
