Suggestions How To Start Having Your Own Quiet Time With God!
I have been journaling for the past couple of years now. In my quiet time in the morning in the bathroom, I search the scriptures with either my concordance or simply page through my Bible, which is marked up. I then take the scripture verse and it in my 8 x 11 notebook, I put the date on, and then I comment on the scripture. Another thing I like to do is to read the entire chapter of whatever scripture I choose for the day.
Then I write down both praises and prayer requests in the bottom half of the notebook. When I am done with that, I go back and read all that I wrote, which also includes a list of about five things I want to accomplish that day. (the next day, I check off the things I accomplished and the things I failed to achieve, I add it to the new day). Having done all of this, I then pray about my prayer requests and ask God for direction for the day.
I suggest that you take my ideas and fit them into your plans.
Remember that any new habit can be hard to start, so I recommend starting slow and build up. Be more concerned about having daily quiet time, no matter how much. Maybe 5-10 minutes each morning (morning is the best time. Otherwise, we tend to get busy as the day starts.
I do my quiet time before I eat. First, feed the soul, then feed the body. I started years ago reading a flip-up devotional and prayed for a few minutes, and now I enjoy my quiet time with God so much I get up 2 hours before I start work at 7:00 to have enough time to fit in my time with God, shower, shave, eat breakfast, and have time to drive to work. ~ Bill Greguska
