Who Made the Quiet Time Rules, Anyway?

We’ve all heard it before, but who said it first? Who said you should spend a prescribed amount of time with a devotional book, prayer journal and a cup of coffee each day before the sun rises in order to have a quiet time?

What if you have a baby who won’t sleep through the night?

What if you hot flash most of the night and getting up at 6 AM sounds impossible since you just fell asleep for the fourth time at 4 AM?

What if you can’t think clearly in the morning? What if you are always surrounded by kids, employees, co-workers or family?

And, what if you can’t have the picturesque quiet time experience because you don’t like coffee?! (I’m kidding, I’m kidding).
