BIS Devotion: The Struggle in Our Hearts

 I am over at Blessed is She today with today's devotion:

I have a time-wasting problem. One that I have confessed again and again for years, and I know that to remedy the problem I simply have to use my time well. I use a planner, allocating time for each thing. It goes well in the morning, but then I get to the afternoon.

My children are napping or resting, and I waste that time. I scroll through the social media, justifying it to myself. Then I see the late hour, and I scramble to do the things I meant to do. I usually end up irritable with my children, and take out my impatience with myself on them. I start dinner late, we eat late, the kids are in bed late, and then my husband and I still have to clean the kitchen instead of having a nice evening. What seems like a simple moment to relax actually has an ill effect on my whole family...

  1. Thank you for your honesty! I feel I could've written this. It's refreshing to hear about someone else's struggles in this area. By the way, do you know your Myers-Briggs Personality type? I feel we may share some similarities...
