When Your Well Runs Dry…

The past two years I’ve been committed to reading the bible in a year and this year I’m on a journey to go through the chronological bible…really exciting!

Here’s the deal…

I’ve struggled these past couple of months with consistency.  I’ve had a desire to be consistent but “life” as some of you may be able to relate has been a lot of crazy… managing a home, marriage, family, homeschooling, church involvement, the list continues.

In a recent conversation with my husband, I shared with him that I felt as though my well was running dry.

During this time of inconsistency, I was all over the place both mentally and physically.

What I noticed over the two year period of consistency was, I was a lot more focused, could hear from the Lord a lot clearer, wasn’t easily moved by things or people and able to recognize the schemes of the enemy at the onset, rather than in the midst.

What I’ve learned is in order for me to be at my best, I need to start each morning sitting and learning at the feet of Jesus.

 

“It’s easy to be a Martha but it takes desire and discipline to be a Mary.”

I know life gets busy and there are meals to be made, dishes to load into the dishwasher, errands to run, kids to transport to extracurricular activities and so forth, however our need for Jesus is much greater.

Please, don’t be mistaken.  I’m not telling you to neglect your responsibilities, though there are times I wished I could … lol.

Our days can be a lot more productive if we choose that which is best… setting time a part to meet with Jesus and allowing him to lead and guide us throughout the day.

There may be days when it’s challenging to have devotion first thing in the morning but don’t let too many days go by without it.  Also, don’t beat yourself up for missing a day or two, but rather pick up where you left off.

My prayer is that you and I will choose daily to live as Mary, to sit and learn at the feet of Jesus; to learn to be a godly wife, mother, sister and friend.

We can prevent our well from running dry by being consistent in God’s word and spending time in His presence.  May your heart be encouraged in the Lord today and forever. 🙂

  1. AMEN girl! I really needed to read this today as I felt like my well has been dried up times 10! Funny thing is I have been feeling that “tug” on my heart to get into His word lately and have fell into a “complacency well” where the longer I stay the thirstier I get. I have been telling myself “I love the Lord and He knows it, so its good enough” when in fact, getting in His Word is for my benefit more than His. Thank you for this post because my heart needed to hear/read this. 🙂 Sometimes I need that reminder that the answer has been in front of me this whole time. ❤ "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and everything else shall be added unto you"…. 🙂 Thanks sis!! #Blessed

    1. Amen!!! You are not alone, many of us fall into that “complacency well”, praise Jesus that His word says, those that hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled.

      I am very thankful you took out the time to read and that your heart is encouraged.

      Yes, Lord, help us to always seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all it’s righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto us. Yes! Yes! and Yes! Thank you for sharing the word. 🙂

  3. My sister just said this very same thing to me on yesterday, “If your day doesnt begin with a conversation or time with God – you are in for a rocky road ahead!” This is total confirmation and I must add that I’ve been taking observations of my days beginning WITH God (my Father) vs WITHOUT God…………..my days beginning WITH God overshadows and trumps my days beginning WITHOUT Him!!!! There is really no comparison to how much better my days are – when they begin with Him. Thanks for sharing and for this encouragement!!!💖

    1. Amen KaLena! I agree with you, beginning with God overshadows and trumps our days without Him! Yes! Thank you so much for sharing. Also, thank you for taking the time out to read. 🙂
