Finding your time

One thing I struggle so desperately with - is finding time for myself. To be alone with God. I always feel like I'm doing 101 things and going atleast 500mph I think it's important to make time to be along with him. Let me tell you a little story.

It was almost a year ago I picked up a crochet hook and a ball of yarn and learned how to crochet. I remember how excited I was about it and how I picked up on it so incredibily fast, my momma was proud to say the least. Everytime I put that hook into the yarn I would feel at peace. It was my quiet time - I could focus my thoughts and just relax, I could talk to God. Then I stopped crocheting. I don't know why because it was something I enjoyed doing so much, but I did. Everyonce in a while I would look at my stash of yarn in the corner and long for it - but I felt I never had time anymore.

Which also lead me to not making time with God, because that was my time with him as well. Finally when I shut down my shop temporarily I picked my yarn back up & it felt right again. Sense then I have spent hours crocheting. I'd be lying if I said I'm always interacting with God while I'm crocheting - but most of the time I am. He brings me peace with a hook & yarn in hand. It's my time for myself & my time for him.

Now I make time for it, a lot of time. If I get the itch to crochet I do it. I don't think "I don't have time right now." because right now - time is something I do have, even if I have to make time for it.

How do you make time for yourself & for God?
