Sometimes I miss my quiet times.
Even smack in the middle of a 40 day Journey with Jesus, sometimes I miss sitting still in my Prayer Chair.
I miss stopping everything for a few quiet moments of just Him and Me. No distractions other than my journal; a devotional book or Bible Study; my coffee or hot tea and maybe some worship music but usually just a ticking clock.
We were designed to desire it.
Still, sometimes I miss a whole day when I sit quietly with my Bible and allow God’s Word to work it’s way into my day.
I miss taking time to allow Him to heal me from yesterday’s bruises.
I miss taking time to allow Him to fill in my heart holes left from selfish desires, stinking thinking, dead-end trails.
When I do that, when I let busyness; poor planning; oversleeping; the demands of life–STEAL my quite time, my day is never complete.
Something is missing IN me and OUT of me.
Something I am absolutely aware of.
It’s no accident ya know.
We were designed that way.
It’s nothing God takes FROM me–He is filled with GRACE and LOVE and always AVAILABLE.
No, it’s something I STEAL from myself.
A chance to be held; to be restored; to be heard; to be led; to be directed; to be encouraged; to be taught; to be equipped.
We were DESIGNED to DESIRE God’s personal attention. He created us to crave Him.
It’s a gift.
I didn’t miss it today. How about you? There is still time 🙂
I have set aside some QUIET time this week to put the finishing touches on my “40 day Journey with Jesus Guide”.
