Do you feel like you spend half your life in places waiting to be called? In my twenty-six years of raising five children, including two with serious heart defects requiring seven open heart surgeries, and one with special needs, I have spent countless hours in waiting areas. Whether it be in hospitals, doctor’s offices, dance studio waiting rooms, Department of Motor Vehicle offices, or college financial aid offices, I have had my share of seemingly “wasted time” with not much to do but wait. We can actually use this time in a very productive way. I personally don’t like reading my bible in public; it’s too distracting for me. I really like to focus and meditate on God’s word when I read it. But we can certainly use this time to read a devotional or two. It is so easy now with social media being so accessible. You can sign up with your favorites to receive e-mails, which you can access right from your phone. My favorite right now is “Truth for Life” by Alistair Begg. I receive devotionals daily, Monday through Friday with summaries of the week on weekends. They are excellent, and take just a few minutes to read. Some of his devotions are taken from C. H. Spurgeon’s devotional book “Morning and “Evening”, which I also highly recommend.
I welcome your feedback on what you come up with. Hope this was a help. More to come….
