Don’t forget the devotions!
I can’t count how many times I have forgotten items at the store that I didn’t write down on my list. I tell myself I will remember but in the busyness of everything, once I am actually at the store if it’s not on my list I inevitably forget it. (Like yesterday when I forgot to buy chocolate chips because I hadn’t written them down.)
That’s why I love Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. There is a dated devotion for everyday of the year. Each entry is short and sweet, but also uniquely personal. It’s as if Jesus is talking to you one on one. Scripture is weaved into every devotion, with references given at the bottom of each page. The book is even small enough to fit in your purse, so you can even take it on the go if need be. A ribbon bookmark is also attached so you won’t lose your place. It’s the perfect start to a busy day.
Noelle likes the Bert and Ernie book so much that she has started saying “Don’t forget the…” for other things, including “Don’t forget the devotions”. Who needs a list when I have a an external memory (a.k.a my four-year-old)? Noelle reminds me every morning that we need to do our devotions together. I read my own and then we do Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids together. It is similar to the original version, but is written in a way younger ones can understand and relate to.
It also helps me to leave our Bibles and devotional books out on the table where I can see them. I am a visual person. If I see it, I will remember it (thus the need for a shopping list). By leaving our things out I know that the first thing I see when I walk in the kitchen is our devotional books and Bibles ready to go.
