Life gets so busy sometimes. I think we forget why we are here. I was reminded this week during our Men's/Ladies Conference one thing we are here for: to have a relationship with our Lord. As a working wife and mother, I have seemed to have little time to read my Bible and pray. I grew up in a Christian home with an amazing mother who raised my two brothers and myself alone. I went to a Christian school and was in church every time the doors were open. This is not an exaggeration. I truly did not appreciate the life my mom and God had provided me. I had Bible class in school. I memorized Scripture. Our high school Bible quiz team won competitions. I was the ultimate Christian teen.....NOT!!
Anyways, this week, our conference was amazing. Pastor Teis showed us how to pray and what we should pray. I made the commitment this week to have daily devotions and prayer in the morning when I get up. It's amazing what a few minutes in prayer and reading the Bible does for one's spiritual well-being. Nothing around me has changed, but I have that marvelous knowledge and peace that I am in communion with my Savior!
