If you haven't found your own quiet place yet, here are a few hints:
- Determine when is your "freshest" time. Whether the morning, the afternoon, the evening, or a combination of these times, you'll want to spend your most alert time to share with God and listen to what He has to say to you.
- Do this daily!! This is a discipline that soon becomes a wonderful habit that you will look forward to.
- Make sure your own "quiet place" is a place where you can read your Bible, pray out loud, write your journalings without distraction or interruptions. This can be any place--outside in a garden, in your bedroom, in your basement, in your car--wherever you can be alone with God.
- After you have finished praying, be still. Be still and wait for God to answer you. I always ask, "God, is there anything you want or need to tell me today?" And then, I am still. You may not feel God's presence with you the first few times you do this, but hang in there! Soon you will feel your spirit filled with God's Holy Spirit--guiding you, directing you, leading you where HE wants you to go!!Blessings to all of you. I pray that this has been a blessing to you as you find your own quiet time with God.
And, remember, as His Firefly said, "He is just waiting for you to arrive!"
