Are you a Camel or a Deer?
Well, as Christians we aim to be like the deer needing and seeking after water daily (analogy for needing God daily), instead of like the camel, who drinks his fill, stores it up and then doesn't drink again for weeks.So often we take one long drink of God to recenter ourselves and then we go into a dry spell for a while and rely on ourselves. We weren't created to be camels, we were created to be deer, needing God DAILY like we need our water daily.
AJ and I are feeling like we are under the gun (Baby comes in 10 weeks!) and are more busy than ever but this is exactly the time when we need to NOT be relying on ourselves... We CAN'T do everything ourselves. If we are too busy to thirst after God, and we need to run on our "camel-like" reserves, then we are too busy. Period.
