A lot of times we can fall into a rut in our quiet time where we aren’t really getting anything from the reading. Or we can be overwhelmed with the idea of a quiet time and not do it at all.
When my kids were little, I felt like I was being a bad Christian because I wasn’t doing my quiet time first thing in the morning. I just didn’t have the energy to wake up at 5am to do quiet time before my kids woke up, so I found time during nap times or after I had put the kids to bed for the night. What God showed me in that time was it isn’t about when or where (no where in scripture does Jesus command “thou shalt do a quiet time before thy day begins!”) it was all about connecting with God throughout the say and being in the Word.
I tried this method once and absolutely fell in love with it! The best part is you can apply this method to anything that you use for quiet time. I am using the daily readings from The Scribes Portion, but you can use any readings from a devotional or just the Bible itself!
