Favorite Devotions for Moms

Posted by  | Sunday, January 17, 2010  at 9:37 PM  
Call me old-fashioned, but for my time with the Lord, I mainly stick to reading the Word and trying to maximize every chance I can get to move the LIVING WORD from the pages to my head and into my heart. Don't get me wrong, I love other things like devotions to help me deepen my understanding of the Word, and that's what I use those things for...to help me understand, but I don't replace my time in the Word with those things. Those devotions always follow behind my reading, if time permits. Nothing can replace the True and Living Word.

At this stage in my life, with a three year old and a five month old that is so very far from sleeping through the night, time does NOT permit me to enjoy an extra devotion or book. Oh I wish it did. I am thrilled if I can carve out QUALITY time in the Word for me. I say quality, because right now, my time in the Word seems so rushed. I know it will get better, but in the meantime, I must do what I can to get the Word in my daily life somehow: scripture on the walls of my home, make a song out of scripture and sing it with my toddler (who LOVES to sing anything and everything), carry scripture in my back pocket, keep my small Bible tucked away in the pocket of the glider, etc..

From my past devos, I have really liked:
  • Beth Moore Bible Studies (and one summer I bought the Spanish version of a Beth Moore Bible Study, so as to challenge myself to continue to learn and sharpen my Spanish), as well as her blog, Living Proof Ministries
  • One on One with God: This particular study does aid you in your time in the Word. I have posted about this study before on POH, but it truly changed my life and my walk with the Lord. I love the free downloads of the reading plan and blank pages for daily Bible reading notes as you read along.

I will post more as I think of them. This Mama is writing too late and must get in bed! Can't wait to make my devo wish list from your feedback and this week's posts. Blessings over your week as you hide away in the Word, as well as LIVE IT OUT this week. Tootles!
