I've fallen off a little bit with updating my daily inspiration, blog and classwork etc., partly
because i've been working on my book and just focusing more on my family. Re-establishing and fostering better relationships, with my husband, children,God appointed children as well as my nieces and nephews. I've been noticing that this is the season that is necessary for me to be in.Early this morning at 2:16, God woke me up and spoke these words to me. "Less of you, more of me". I thought to myself, have I been neglecting God? Have I been consumed with life, that I've been neglecting my quiet time? I pray(maybe not a lot of words, but I do pray) I worship and definitely
preach/teach HIS word to all who will listen. I was quickly reminded that "To whom much is given, much is required" I needed to focus more on the bigger picture. When I exercise that is usually my time with God. That is my time to regroup, recharge and refocus when the daily happenings of life tend to drain me. I can hear HIM more clearly during this time. I reflected on last week and how I was SO excited about the kids leaving for the weekend that I failed to ask God was it a good idea. I failed to invite HIM into my decision. I failed to exercise and I filled myself up with junk and was extremely lazy. On Saturday, my baby boy spent the night with his grandparents. He was so excited
and happy to spend time with them. As I've mentioned before in past posts, my children mean the world to me. My MIL text asking me to call him, I responded immediately with a phone call. As soon as she told him that I was on the phone he began to weep and tell me how much loved and missed me. We knew he was extremely tired from their jammed packed, fun filled weekend. While I was
comforting Dante, God began to speak to me. HE said Devita, he's crying because he(Dante) has no idea what it means to be away from the person who brings him so much joy and vice versa. He's crying because you didn't explain nor did you ask how he would feel about going tohis grandparents house. Devita, I need to be centered in ALL that you do. My grace is required not only for you, but for them as well. The reason why you feel heavy with burden and feel you need a break is because you continue to add more to your life without my approval. Yes, your moving in the right direction for my kingdom, but I need you to remember that I have to provide you with grace for EVERYTHING!
I have to remember this for every area of my life. I've taken on tasks, business opportunities
etc., and failed to ask for grace and mercy.
Less of me, more of HIM! I get it, and will keep this in the forefront moving forward.
