I stepped outside to take my four kids, two nieces, and nephew across the street to the park. Realizing it would be a perfect photo-op moment I ran back inside to grab my camera. We toddled, ran, skipped, and walked across the street. Hoping to get some good shots of them I flipped the camera on only to realize the battery wasn’t in. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!
Batteries are necessary for a camera to function. It was a little reminder for me that I need my personal batteries charged and ready too.
I did get some good coffee in the morning, but more important than that were the moments of worship, reflection, and prayer I was able to take. It’s more of a challenge during a vacation when we’re staying in a house with thirteen people. Quiet or alone time can be hard to find but I can rest knowing that His love is near even when I am far from my home. He is my battery.
Hebrews 12:3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Prayer: Thank you Father for keeping my batteries full as I enjoy spending time in your presence and the presence of others. Help me not lose focus and always be prepared to share your love.
