Do you struggle to create space in your daily routine for quiet time with God? So many of us want to feel close to Him, but we have difficulty finding time in our chaotic schedules. Or maybe a lack of time isn’t the issue, but inconsistencies in our days or being pulled away by distractions.
Well, my friend, if this is something you struggle with, then be encouraged…
I don’t know how it is with you when you read Scripture, but often my mind wanders.
You know, one second I am reading about Moses on Mt. Sinai, and the very next second I am wondering where my black yoga pants are and why my mail is now being delivered at 3:00 instead of noon! Can I get a witness?
Sometimes focus is hard.
So, here is an easy (and by easy, I mean easy) way to stay focused as you read Scripture.
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).
