Devotions On-the-Go

I remember the hectic days of preparing for pastoral ministry with my husband, Jeff. We were raising three teenagers at the time, and I worked full-time at Focus on the Family, which required a rather lengthy commute to and from our home each day. I was going to have to be creative if I wanted to have meaningful devotions/Bible reading with my kids before leaving for work in the mornings. I vividly remember the daily routine (fondly, now). Get up at the crack of dawn, exercise, shower before our two daughters “took over” the bathroom, and grab a quick breakfast (cereal has always been the Fletcher favorite). Somewhere during this time, I found a few moments to have my own personal time with God, and then out the door we went. While driving our daughters to school, I had them take turns reading a daily devotional in the car. Fast forward fifteen plus years…both of our daughters, now moms, have told me that this was a meaningful time in their spiritual development. My son-in-law once shared, his dad would never let him or his siblings leave for school until he had read the Bible/devotional with them at the breakfast table each morning. I am now seeing the results of making devotional time with God a high priority in our home(s) when our kids were growing up. Our daughters and their husbands now have meaningful devotions with their children (my grandchildren!), sometimes on-the-go.

 Life is busy, but let’s remember…“you must think constantly about these commandments I am giving you today. You must teach them to your children and talk about them when you are at home or out for a walk; at bedtime and the first thing in the morning” Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (TLB).
