Me Time Thoughts

I was thinking about this, “me time”. What is it? Why would I want it? Do I get it even with so many children.

I know what it is. I don’t want it. I get it and always have. My time is not my own. My life is not my own. I am a servant of Christ Jesus.

Galatians 2:20 (KJV)
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. “
Jesus the Son of God loved me and gave Himself for me, how much moreso can I give myself, my time, my “me-time” for my family? For I am His servant. Part of His bride.

If I had some “me-time” I would be lonely. Why? Because I would be. I love spending all my waking hours with my children and wish I could spend all of it with my husband as well! Alas, he does have a job that requires his attention so that he can provide for our family. But a girl can dream can’t she?

I love spending my night watches with my ones who need me. I consider it a privelege to serve them in the night as well as day if needs dictate. The season of night wakings is just a season. Although, mine has been a little long, I still praise God that I do have them! They can be tiring, but it is God who gives sleep. (Psalm 127:2) Therefore there is not a reason to complain about what He does give.
The Lord orders my days and directs my steps. (Psalms 37:23) Who am I to argue with the supposed lack of “me-time”.

If you are longing for the time to do what you want to do, when you want to do, I would challenge you to open your Bible and renew your thoughts about things. If you don’t know the Lord and what He has done for you, I would challenge you to find out and take action.

He is the reason for the hope that lies within me.
