Total amount of time needed: 4 hrs, 10 mins, give or take a half hour. Svanja wakes up around 8:30, so I would need to get up at 4:15-ish in order to get all that done every day (did I do my math right?).
Not happening. The earliest I can go is 5. I did 5:30 this morning, and I got devos and breakfast and tea and shower/hair done, but that was it. I got a little sidetracked with Facebook and Twitter...and reading other people's blogs.
What I will probably do is work on Arabic every other day, blog every other day, and if I don't have enough time to do the freelance projects, move that time to Svanja's naps (she naps a total of 3 hours each day, so I have plenty of time to work on them).
But I want to be very consistent with my devotions. God may be telling Jordan and I something very specific right now. I want to KNOW that is Him talking to me and not just my own mind going off on its own, seeing arrows in coincidences and convicting me falsely. The more I do devotions, the more I pray, the more I ask God to make me sensitive to His voice and His leading, the more I should be able to tell what His will is for us and what it isn't. Pray without ceasing - it's hard to do, but I'm trying to do it.
Under Your will is where I want to be
Truly knowing that You are speaking to me
Accepting that our future is in Your hands
Holding nothing back in following Your plan
