This is a very current struggle for me right now. My world got disrupted and I have a hard time figuring out the rhythm.

Every one of us relates to this, Pam. In retrospect, I am always amazed when I fall into the trap of my own making and push time in the Word to the back burner. The one, life giving thing that will refresh, give me wisdom and peace is often the first thing I cut or reduce from my schedule. Thanks for your transparency – love that we all connect in our weakness so His strength can shine through.
