I have started to press pause in the early morning hours.
I wake up to see my two older boys off to school, then while my little one sleeps and the house is immaculately quiet, I press pause on my day and I meet with God.
While sipping my mug of caramel colored coffee these are the defining moments that lay the foundation for my day.
When we start off preceding any other obligations we have, with God, we free up space within our soul to be able to do more.
By giving our worries, concerns, frustrations and anxieties to Him we make room for what is important.
By letting go of what is holding us down, we rise.
Pressing pause gives me a moment to breathe, to step away from the pressures of everyday life.
Pressing pause lets me reflect on who I am and who God made me to be.
In pressing pause I become more.
It’s refreshing to spend these silent moments alone with Him, just being.
No masks, no pretending, no falsehoods….it’s just me being raw and real.
In the early morning hours, before the budding of a new day begins, I meet with God.
I press pause before I press play.
I give myself over to God wholeheartedly and for the rest of my day, I can feel Him, right by my side, carrying me through.
Give yourself a moment.
Watch how everything changes.
