Helpful Ways To Be Intentional In Your Quiet Times

Helpful Ways To Be Intentional In Your Quiet Times

Many things can be done to start making your quiet times intentional. One way is by setting goals (big or small). Goals can be set by deciding factors such as time, days, how often, how much and more. You can set goals on when to worship, pray, read the Bible, create art and so on.

I encourage you to write down your goals. Writing your goals down can help you in the process. Each time you have accomplished a goal you can check it off your list. Doing so will help you see the process and how far you’ve come in accomplishing your goal.

Ask yourself these questions when setting goals:

1. What is the best time to do quiet times? (AM or PM?)

2. What days do I want quiet times? (Mondays, Wednesdays, etc…?)

3. How do I want to spend time with God? (Worship, Creating Art, Prayer, etc…?)

4. How much of the Bible do I want to read?

5. What do I want to read?

6. What do I want to pray about?

7. What do I want to do for worship? (Dance, Create Art, Music, etc…?)

* Also keep in mind that the Lord speaks and there may be certain things He’d like you to pray for, read or do for your quiet times.

You can even find many helpful reading plans. Some Bibles have them. The internet has many you can look for that include printable versions. Or you can create your own Bible reading plan! Perhaps you have your own way of being intentional with your quiet times. Stick with whatever method works for you! You’ve most likely heard the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Keep trying and don’t give up!

2 Ways You Can Use Creativity Part 2

2 Ways You Can Use Creativity Part 2

We’ve all heard it said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” In my experience I have found that statement true. At different times I have found that a picture I create whether it be a drawing, painting or photograph has been useful. God used each picture to bring healing, encourage or speak to someone. So how can a picture bring healing, encourage or be used for God to speak to someone?

In my Discipleship Training School I was given an assignment to ask God for a picture to draw and color. I was to also ask who that picture was for. While waiting for an answer the thought popped up to draw a brown house including a front porch with green grass and a river flowing nearby. Little did I know that picture would be used to bring healing to one of my classmates.

When she saw that picture it brought back a memory of a bad experience she had at a house like that in her past. Through that I got the opportunity to pray for her and let God heal her. Later I found out that very same picture encouraged another classmate that same day!

At a different time the Lord told me to draw a heart, write, “God loves you,” paint it red and send a picture text to one of my friends. When she saw it she told me she cried and that she needed to hear that God loved her. Through that picture and God’s words she was encouraged and it helped her when she was going through a rough time. In my next blog post I will share someone else’s testimony of how God used my photographs to speak to her.
