How’s your quiet time? This is a common question between me and a sweet sister in Christ. If you are like me, quiet time is often hard to come by. There are chores to be done, homework, extracurricular activities, meals to cook………the list is REALLY long.
What I’ve found is that if I make time for God, all those other things get done. Eventually. They may not fall into the perfect schedule that I have in my head but in reality, it doesn’t matter if there is dust on the top of my refrigerator or if I have to “de-wrinkle” a load of clothes 3 or 4 times.
See the Lord asks for our first fruits. What does that mean? It means we give him our best; not our tired and weary bodies. And not the end of our day when we are falling asleep as we read a passage of scripture and try to stay awake as we pray.
I heard a beautiful quote while doing a Lysa TerKeurst Bible study. She said:
That is what I know I need. To rise early (which, by the way, goes against my philosophy for mornings) and spend time in quiet with Him. To meditate on His word. To pray and lay my heart at His feet.
What happens when I do this?
My day goes better. And sometimes I even accomplish more than I had planned.
I pray that you will have some time to “whisper” with God very soon.
Joy to You!
