Throughout my life, God has given me slight nudges toward what He wants me to do. Often times I ignore these nudges or say, "Yeah I'll get to that" until He just slams me over the head with it! Lately, the past few months, He has been nudging me about taking time for me. Taking the time to be still and allow Him to fill my cup. It seems like every where I turn there are messages of needing to get my cup filled before I can try to fill other's cups. The challenge comes with how....I'm a full-time working mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and runner and I suppose I forget to pencil myself into all of that.
As the school year wraps up I always find my time even more sliced and diced with all the last minute things to do. This morning as I drove white knuckled to work, of course running late, I thought to myself, "I can't do this anymore." I was beating myself up for being too "lazy" to get up and run this morning and trying to calculate when I could fit in a triple session to make up for the miles I had missed. I want to make the change with this before God needs to hit me over the head!
This summer, really next week, I want to spend making my decisions reflect the desires of my heart....being a loving wife, soaking in time with my daughter while I have it, running because I love to not because I have to, and just delighting in the many blessings I have been given....taking the time to get my cup filled every day!
So I ask you.....How do you fill YOUR cup?
