31 Days of Learning to Work from Home {Day 5}: More time with God


For so many years now, I have dreamed of the opportunity to work from home.  I have dreamed of how awesome it would be to be able to set my own schedule.  When you are able to plan how your days go, you are able to prioritize what's really important to you.  

One thing that means alot to me personally is being able to carve out a daily quiet time with God.  It can be a challenge to do that, even on the best of days, so being able to have a flexible work schedule can make a big difference in making this time happen on a consistent basis.

At Day 5 of this venture, I will be honest and tell you that I have yet to make this happen like I've planned it in my mind.  Of course, some time with God is better than none at all, but I long to be able to have a more meaningful prayer and study time each day.



My plan is to let this be a priority first thing every morning.  It's been a challenge these first few days of October because my schedule is not set just yet.  But I feel sure that within the next week, I will be able to better see how my days need to be planned out and I'll be able to make this my top daily priority.

It's hard for me to allow myself extra time to do what I want when I feel the pressures of learning new job duties and so many other things going on in my life right now.  There have been alot of new things for me in the last couple of months.....new job, new church, new ministry opportunities.  But it's an exciting time and I'm working hard to get a daily/weekly schedule in place to accomplish everything.

I would also like to encourage you to make time to spend with God each day.  I'm totally convinced that when we do, we are better able to sense His presence in our lives and are armed with what we need to accomplish our daily tasks.

I would have to agree with you, taking time out of your day to spend with God especially in the mornings, just seems to make your day go by better.
