"My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever." Psalm 73:26 NLT

The snooze button …the glorious snooze button. Even though I'm a morning person, who craves the silence of the day's start before anyone else is awake, life is life. Some days, I would rather roll over and listen to the birds than wake up and get in the Word with God. It sounds terrible, I know! I hate to admit it, but life is life. And I know I am not the only one who struggles to meet with our Maker daily. Many of my friends over the years have expressed similar struggles about getting into the Word and have admitted feelings of intimidation about where and how to start studying the Bible daily.

I know how hard it is to find the time. When my daughters were little, I remember locking the bathroom door to read my Jesus Calling devotional. During that season of my life, I learned God blesses the time we find to connect with Him, and He stretches those minutes to fill us with encouragement and wisdom. He honors any time we give to Him. And the more time we give to Him, the more we crave …because He is God. He is awesome! As a writer, I'm keenly aware I would have nothing to say if I didn't spend time with God. He is the one who takes the verses in the Bible and puts them on full display in my daily life. The way He meets me in the moment and walks me through whatever I'm going through connects the dots of my life. Today, I'd like to share with you what He shared with me this morning. This morning, He met me with this verse:

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:26 NIV
