I read something today, it was about Praying aloud. I read it here, a place I'd never been before. It was one of those moments that I think God directed.
I pray. I pray daily. But I rarely set aside an actual Time to spend with God. I have a really hard time doing a Daily Devotional. I know it's something that I need in my life. When I do actually set time aside to study God's word, I know it blesses me. So why do I still struggle with this area? I am selfish. I won't get myself up early, because I want my sleep. At night, I want "Me Time" to watch TV, or flip through a magazine. I feel stretched to the brink many times, what with all the mommying, driving, cleaning, laundrying...I tend to think "I just need some ME time!" When in all actuality, I probably need some GOD time! Anyway, the Praying aloud idea really struck me. It doesn't have to be Loud, it can be a whisper, as Jennifer emailed me. What a Great Idea! I've prayed out loud before. Usually in my car when I'm alone. It definitely makes me focus more on my words, my heart. It's something I'm going to try everyday. It's not a Devotional, but it's a start. A step in the right direction.
