{"Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways! You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes!" -Psalm 119:1-5} 

What's in your life right now that doesn't belong? What's holding you back from drawing near to the Lord? God wants all of you! He wants you to empty everything your heart is carrying so that He can refill it with what makes your heart beat- Him! He wants to lavish you in His love and show you just how much He cares for you. However, if your heart is filled with distractions, the longing you have within you won't be filled properly because your undivided attention won't be on the Filler, and He needs just that. The Lord your God is your number one priority, ladies. Number. One. It's so easy to become distant in our relationship with God. That's why, just like anything else, it's a discipline. You have to be intentional and purposeful behind your pursuit of your Father- every step of the way. The Maker of the universe, who knows each and every detail of each and every one of our lives makes time for us every day. But then there's us, with our "crazy busy" lives who just can't seem to prioritize our time schedules correctly. Maybe that's because we're not starting our days with the One who gives us life and allows us to wake up in the morning. 

Before Monday shows up knocking on your door, I want to challenge each of you to look at the schedule of the upcoming week and set aside time for God each day. Write it in if you have to. Set an alarm on your phone for a certain time of each day. Whatever it takes. My words to you are not only a reminder today, dear sisters. It's a challenge for you to dive into a deeper relationship with Who you're living for and Who truly deserves your time, as well as a life that's completely dedicated to Him. Read the rest of Psalm 119 today. May the Word of God breathe life into your very bones this week as you draw near to Him.
