“I used to spend almost an hour a day praying and reading the Bible. But since having kids, I really don’t have enough time, so it just makes me want to give up!”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I think every mom faces this challenge. I once asked an older woman what she learned in this area. She said:
“This season of life does not always lend itself to longer, in-depth study of the Word, but even a few verses and a short prayer and worship time have helped me through many days. We can’t put ourselves on a guilt trip at this stage of life when we can’t spend as much time as we’d like in the Word. But it must still be our top priority, however brief it may be.”
Nancy: If you can’t spend hours and hours, what time can you carve out? God knows your heart. I believe if you will make it a priority to spend what moments you can with Him, He will bless and multiply that time.
