"If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you." (John 14:15-16 NLT)
This is such a crazy time! We are all "sheltering in place," which means staying home, but how many of us have finished (or even worked on!!) the various projects we have put back to do when _______ - fill in the blank. There are boxes to unpack (I have lived here almost a year now), books to be read, needlework to finish and "stash" to be worked through. I will even admit to actually working on some of this. I will also admit that working from home has meant a busier (more difficult?) schedule.
Then we get the Scripture reading "if you love me obey my commandments" and the one in Mark 12:30 "you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength." God FIRST! Oh, dear....... Putting God first, spending time with God first. Following where God is leading first. Is that what we are doing? Are we spending the time in God's Word? Are we taking the time to be with God?
Yes, this is a crazy time. Yes, there are things, especially as primary care givers, that have to get done. Yes, there are things more difficult as we have to adjust to new schedules and (my least favorite!) learn new things with technology. Crazy, difficult times mean we NEED the time with God even more!
