Brainstorm Journal and Prayer Journal

Ok - so I am combining two journals in one day. Just did not get around to the Brainstorm journal yesterday.

Brainstorm Journal:

My problem is Time. Being a new mom, learning to use my time wisely is a delicate thing. There are so many things that need to be done and so many things that I would like to do.

The first thing that I have to do is spend time with God every day. I won't know what I need to do or focus on that day without being in tune with the Lord. He tells me to come to Him to get rest. He tells me to come to Him for wisdom and He will give it. He is the One who created the day and He is the One who created me. So I need to come to Him for my day, my time, my purpose, my direction.

I need to cut some things out or widdle them down. I need to really evaluate what activities to do. Especially on the weekends because our family time is so precious. I need to widdle down my TV time. I love to watch TV and I get sucked in so easily. I need to purge some things to be more organized and not overwhelmed.

I need to prioritize what is most important to me. My relationship with the Lord, my marriage, Brayson, family, etc.

I need to set realistic goals. I need to figure out what realistic is for me now.

I need to spend time on Sunday night to write out what needs to be done and what I would like to do during the week. Then break it down in realistic bites for each day and see what can be put on the back burner for that week if I can't get to it.

Learn to let go when I need to let go.

Prayer Journal:

I have had quite a few friends have babies recently. One couple has had triplets. I have had two friends have babies this week. Now that I have had a child, I get more excited when babies are born. And can empathize with all the crazy emotions you have after you have your baby. Sometimes it can be so hard. So my friends have been on my heart and I have been praying for them a lot. They were the focus of my prayer journal today.
