Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.So, I thought I would give you an example of what I do for my Bible times/Quiet Times with God. I hope that by me posting this God would get glory and you would draw ever more nearer to Him. Having Bible times daily has greatly impacted my walk with God and I highly recommend that if you don't already have a Bible time daily, then you start. These are just a few ideas, you do not have to do it like me of course :) I have found when you create an atmosphere for Bible time where you want to be, then you will want to come back. So, that is what I do. I turn on soft worship music, light a few candles, get a snack or a hot drink and just start reading a passage, and then I journal what I got out of the passage. Your time will be so much more productive if you put some thought into your Bible times, than if you just go to the middle of the house where every one is chatting and or raising there voice(anyone have 5 brothers:-) and it is messy I personally think that it is harder to concentrate on the Bible if you do not make it a point to put a little time and effort in to it. Although, I said all of that I know that there are busy Mommy's of young kiddos and such who do not have time for a long drawn out Bible time and there is no where in the house that is quiet so dont feel bad:) God knows where you are at! I would love to hear about how you all have your quiet times...What do you do?
Here are some scriptures about having Bible time.
