Quiet Time

"But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray." Luke 5:16 CEV

When was the last time that you allowed yourself to have quiet time with your Lord? No, I mean it--true quiet time? Time that is just for you and Him. Time when you are not looking at your watch every 20 minutes. Time when you are all tensed up because you have to get this done. All relationships need some one-on-one, focus on each other time. Why do we not think our relationship with our Father would be any different?

We keep ourselves so busy. We barely have time to do what we need to do--but this is one area that we, you, should not fudge on. It puts everything in alignment when you do. It should be a time when you can sit and just be. It may be when you have your Bible in hand. It may be when you are on your knees praying. It may be when you are just sitting. Sitting with nothing on the radio or T.V. Listening with your spirit to the words of your Father. Feeling the presence of Him wrapping Himself around you.

Quiet time can take many forms and there is no wrong or right one. You may experience a different form each time you have one. The only wrong one is not having one.

If it was important enough for Jesus to do, shouldn't that tell us that it is important for you?


  1. Absolutely! Be still and know... how often we forget this, how often we forget how much healing happens during our quiet time.

  2. Dear Gina,

    I just wanted to thank you for your comment. It's wonderful to have people take the time and response to what God is wanting us to share.

    Blessings to you!:)
