Listen, I know you are busy. You have a to-do list that is a mile long, kids needing attention, a husband that also needs your attention, and your quiet times seems to be slipping because you are just too busy.
It’s easy to get into this too busy lifestyle. We find a routine. Things seem to be smooth sailing; coasting along. Then, bam, something happens that interrupts your day and completely wrecks your world emotionally. All of a sudden, you found time for quiet time because you needed it since it felt like someone or something poked a hole in your inner tube that stopped you from coasting along.
Now the emotions you kept at bay, all the insecurities, shame, or guilt has come to the surface in one situation. Maybe it reminds you of something from your past and you get angry. Maybe it reminds you of something that makes you cry because it’s too painful.
Where am I going with this?
I want you to realize that those feelings you keep suppressing and coasting along with aren’t going away until they are dealt with at the root cause.
It will take time to work through. But, don’t use time as your excuses. You must work on healing in that time. Time will pass (like it has) but if you don’t do the inner work yourself, time won’t make it go away.
I have a lot to share on this topic but I wanted to give you something that you could do RIGHT NOW, today, that could help with this process.
Inside the Own Your Worth Member Community I am challenging the women with this and I have been challenging myself as well.
You’ll need to make time for your quiet time because you now know how important this is. Make it non-negotiable. Even if it’s just five minutes. If you want to stop lashing out, getting angry all time, and carrying pain from your past then you will begin to go to Him more and more.
Our goal is not independence. Our goal is dependence; dependence on Him.
Here is your writing exercise:
- Get out a pen and a piece of paper.
- On the blank piece of paper, I want you to begin writing down whatever you feel in the moment. Whatever is bothering you or on your heart. (You can time yourself if you would like. But, don’t get caught up in rules of what something should be or look like.)
- After you spent some time writing, I then want you to write out a question you would like an answer to. After you write out the question be still and wait till you hear an answer.
- Don’t try to force an answer. Just write down whatever comes to your mind first. If you don’t hear anything, then try again tomorrow.
This is about letting Him speak to you and you being quiet enough to listen.
The Own Your Worth Member Community has been loving this writing exercise to do in their quiet time.
He has begun to show me so many things that I never really understood before. He has been showing me a new way, His way, of things.
Let me know how it goes with you! Comment below!
