Everyday our lives are so busy with so many obligations. For example, those of us that are married, need time with our spouses to cultivate a relationship that will last. Then there are the needs of our children, the pets, the household chores, other relationships (family and friends), work, church activities, social functions, and school work, etc. How do we manage all these demands and still find the time to pray and read God's word so that our spiritual man can be fed and grow stronger. This is one of the questions that I always ask myself. I hope this blog will help make it easier to balance our busy lives so that we can make the time needed to be the person that God desires us to be. May I be a blessing to you.

The Shunammite Woman's Faith
In 2 Kings 4: 8-37, we are introduced to a woman who was wealthy and well respected. She was kindhearted and used this kindness to provide shelter for Elisha the prophet whenever he traveled and passed by her house. Elisha became a frequent visitor and a friendship developed between the prophet and her family. Her hospitality prompted the prophet to learn more about her because he wanted to repay her kindness towards him. Her reward was a child.
