I was praying this morning, "Lord show me what steps to take right now." There is so much brewing in my head. Things that I know will come. Things I know I need to do. But I DO NOT want to get ahead of Him. Hence the prayer. What is He calling me to do RIGHT NOW? What steps am I to be taking this very day? The answer... I feel like I am suppose to continue with fervor in the 90 days through the bible. There is an urgency to it. Step 1 complete each days reading. So how am I doing in that? I have read Genesis 1 through Numbers 8 in 10 days. I had two days where I did half readings. God continues to amaze me with what He is showing me. Step 2 is to continue purging my home. He does expect me to get through my whole home before the free sale. This means I have to keep at it. I have the bathroom, bedroom and shed to complete as well as fine tuning some of the others. Step 3 pray continuosly. Be in prayer. Take a few minutes here and there to connect and pray. An hour at a time is not realistic right now. So I am doing a few minutes here and there. Training the kids, that mom is going to pray for a few minutes. Spend a few minutes and then return. This time will grow. Some of my time will be in my room with the door shut. Other moments are as I put away the dishes or am going through things. The key...is for me to pray. Obedience in all things, one step at a time. That's where I am at.
