Wondering how to find time to read your Bible as a mom? I understand the frustration and am sharing three helpful tips that switched my mindset about “quiet time” as a mom.
“I just don’t have time to sit down and read my Bible when there are a million other things to do!” I proclaimed to a friend. I went on to explain that I knew it was important but it was next to impossible. From the moment my eyes opened, I was in mom mode and once I finally laid down at night I would instantly fall asleep.
However, even with my proclamation, my friend urged me to find the time and to think of reading my Bible in a different way.
I left the coffee date pondering her challenge. Honestly, she was not wrong, I was stuck in a mindset. In my mind, reading my Bible involved a quiet space and I needed at least thirty minutes to sit, pray, read, and reflect. As a mom of two very little kids, this had seemed impossible.
Find Time to Read Your Bible as a Mom
But now as I thought about it all, I wondered if I needed to let go of the routine and regulations. In my desire to find time to read the Bible, even as a mom of littles, I decided to do some research. I started checking out podcasts and books about devotional time and motherhood.
The more I listened and read the more I realized a beautiful truth: There is no perfect way to read your Bible. There is not a time frame we have to meet or rules to follow. God does not call us to perfection but to Himself to grow and connect.
Today, I want to encourage you. If you are in a season where it seems impossible, I want you to know that with God, it is possible.
Here are some tips to help you find time to read your Bible as a mom, even in the busy seasons. Read the rest of the post over at Ruthie Gray’s blog.
