Things started off great. I was feeling motivated, and inspired. After one day of spending intentional time alone with God, I received notice of something. It became apparent that some thing I had been praying for was “being processed.” I was excited, although I had not been given a direct result, yet.
Day 2 rolled around and I was increasingly motivated. I spent time with the Lord, and I felt His presence increasingly strong. Then I believe the enemy began to use things against me, my strong stubbornness, laziness, and my overall extreme fatigue.
I could not motivate myself to pray, or even prevent myself from going to bed early. It saddened me to the very core, yet I refused to give up. Days 5,6,7, I spent time with the Lord.
It sometimes looked different than I had intended. I knew that the enemy was trying to keep me from my time with the Lord. Although I was tired, and perhaps a bit frustrated, at times I would take my time with the Lord into the relaxing bath tub with me.
Although through out the day, I would still lift up many-a-quiet prayers to God, I wanted that intentional time alone with God. I believe He wanted me to be more intentional as well.
I feel closer to God, and although I know there is still so much more to learn, I have learned over the course of the week, that God will use just the right thing, at just the right time.
Although, I missed a couple of days, I read things that inspired me just when and where I needed to be. I am going to continue to embark upon this journey, and I will continue to monitor on here, how it is going.
God has been and always will be faithful. I am awaiting answers, and I know that whatever the answer will be, God’s got me. (There is something better in store, if the answer is no).
