Have you ever been in a slump before? I’m there now. I have so much going on and my mind is so preoccupied that I’m forgetting all the little details, including my normal prayer time. I normally pray each morning as I walk Milo. I’ve been getting back, sitting down to read my morning devotions to realize that I’ve totally forgotten about my morning prayer time. I don’t even know how this keeps happening. It hasn’t been just one day, but all week long.
I know I have a lot going on, but that’s no excuse. God doesn’t put us on hold, and He is taking care of a lot more than we could ever think about. So what is it? The only thing I can think of, is that the Devil will take advantage of any situation he can. So if you are overextending yourself and not getting your proper rest, he will utilize these moments to step in and cause disruption.
Understand this though. Your walk and faith may not be affected in any way. This is different. These instances cause interference with your walk, so you’re not as close to God. Mind you, God hasn’t moved or changed, He’s still there, waiting for you to learn and push through to get back on track.
So, I keep praying for God to take complete control of my life, including reminding me of my prayer time. And, with complete confidence I know he will and I know things will get back on track.
