Lately I've been reflecting on my walk with God. I'll be real with you - God and I are going through a bit of a transition right now as I'm figuring out this whole "motherhood + discipleship" thing and ohhhh my is it a bit different. Between hormones, exhaustion, a dependent little person, and to be quite honest - my own sinful nature - finding a rhythm with my Heavenly Father is challenging. I've been fighting for it with prayer walks and new-mom devotional books, but it's certainly been an adjustment. My mom-friends keep telling me that this transition is normal and that it will get easier (um, yes please!). Because the truth is, I am loving motherhood and all it's spit-up glory - but I miss my rhythm with God.
How do I respond to situations in my life that are dark, confusing and unstable? Could I write a miktam in the middle of my darkest night simply because I long to express the extreme contrast of God's love, power and faithfulness in my moment of darkness?
I believe I can if I invest as much heart and time into my relationship with God as David did.
