Lack of Devotion

Yes. I have not blogged for almost an entire month. Boo.
There is this thing called busyness and I have a bad case of it.

It's at busyness times that my true colors show.

What is it that I put first and foremost at the top of my "honeydo" list? What is the most important thing for me to do in my day?

Get on Facebook?
Continue my addiction to Pinterest?
Spend an entire hour deciding on what outfit looks best?
Read a book?

I confess with a heavy heart that I have indeed put these ahead of my devotions many days of my life. They cause me to place my selfishness before my Savior. And i hate it. HATE IT.

WHY on earth would I put that nonsense before my Best Friend?
For crying out loud it's wrong.

Yes, it is.

It's wrong.

I am so grateful to have a patient, loving, and caring Savior who slows down to help me take babysteps.
He is my strength.
I have no good besides Him.

"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is." ~ Eph.5:15-17


  1. Thank you so much for your sincere honesty, Kaytra. This morning in Wisdom Search Papa asked what we each waste time on, and I had to say the internet. Your words ring true to me, and I am so grateful with you for our forgiving Savior. That said, shall I continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid!

  2. I'm with you, Kaytra, in the failure--let's stride together into victory {by the strength and grace of God alone}!

  3. Thank you guys for your sweet encouragement. It is such a help to have friends who keep me accountable.

The Word of God I think of as a straight edge, which shows up our own crookedness. We can't really tell how crooked our thinking is until we line it up with the straight edge of Scripture. ~ E. Elliot

What we say affects our eternal destiny.

Please comment with these in mind, and I look forward to your encouraging and edifying comments!
