Nurturing Your Spirit: A Career Mom's Guide to Balancing Devotion

In the fast-paced world of a working mom, finding time for spiritual growth can be challenging. However, planning and carving out moments for devotional time is crucial for personal well-being and balance.

Here are five practical ways to prioritize and plan your spiritual journey amidst a busy career and family life:

Morning Rituals: Kickstart your day with a few minutes of reading the word of God, reflection, prayer, or meditation. Setting aside time in the morning allows you to center yourself before the demands of work and family take over. Being intentional with putting God first.

Matthew 6:33 - "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."

Lunch Break Pause: Utilize your lunch break as a sacred time for spiritual nourishment. Whether it's reading inspirational texts, listening to worship music, or engaging in a short prayer, this midday pause can rejuvenate your mind and spirit.

Incorporate Family Time: Blend your spiritual time sometimes with family activities. Consider involving your children in creating moments of gratitude together. This not only strengthens your bond but also integrates spiritual growth into family life.

Digital Detox: Allocate specific time slots during the week for a digital detox. Disconnecting from screens opens up opportunities for a deeper connection with God. You also have time for introspection, prayer, or meditation.

Weekend Retreats: Plan occasional weekend retreats or getaways focused on spiritual growth and rejuvenation. This can be a solo retreat or one with like-minded individuals, providing a dedicated space and time for introspection and growth away from the daily hustle.

Remember, integrating spiritual time into your routine doesn't require large chunks of time; small, consistent efforts can lead to significant personal and professional benefits. Prioritizing your spiritual growth is not just a luxury but a necessity for overall well-being.
