When my mother-in-law was seriously ill, my husband—her only son—was out of the country and unreachable. As I cared for her by the hour, I have to tell you—I was reaching deep into my reservoir!
There just wasn’t time for my usual quiet times with God. What I found was strength in the many scriptures I’d memorized over the years. I gained energy from the psalms I’d read and from past times I spent alone with God. Those were roots deep into God’s truth. And I needed every one of them.
Your Quiet Time
If someone asked you to describe your quiet time with God today, what would you say? We know how to pull off parties, weddings, and retreats. And our quiet times should be no different—especially considering the value.
What’s ideal for you? What would make them quality times? What energizes and refreshes you? Keep in mind that something is always better than nothing. Pick a time that matches your lifestyle—even if it’s the middle of the night…or at a lunch break… or in the car. Take out your calendar and make an appointment each day.
If you’re going to be a woman after God’s own heart, the support you get from a healthy root system is vital for standing strong in the Lord. Meet with God regularly. Talk to Him through prayer and commune with Him through meditation. Read His wisdom found in His Word.
Father, it’s so hard sometimes to set aside time to meet with You. Life is so demanding—family, friends, work, meetings all pull at me. Time seems so short. Please help me keep my priorities in order so I meet with You every day. Thank You. Amen.
