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!

Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 2

Persecution In The Name of Christ Part 2

Here is the story of one Korean-American missionary man; Kenneth Bae. He was on the media such as CNN, CBS This Morning and USA Today. People heard about him.

Last month at a conference I got to hear him personally share his testimony, which brought me encouragement and hope. He spoke of a time he was working in China. On his last tour he brought Christian tourists to pray, worship and see the land there.

By mistake he brought a hard drive containing western media on N. Korea that led police to believe he was trying to overthrow the Gov’t with prayer and worship. He was detained and charged with other crimes.

The arrest led to a death sentence or 15 yrs. of hard labor. While police were questioning him he told the police they had “more faith in the power of prayer than most Christians do.” God had a plan for Kenneth though.

Being forced to work outside for hours, losing about 50 lbs. and suffering malnourishment put him in the hospital three times. Kenneth would tell God he wanted to go home, but he would hear God say that God was with him.

Some points Kenneth made is that N. Koreans and Chinese have no way to hear about Jesus. Jesus name isn’t even accessible on the internet for them. So, Kenneth was there to reach N. Koreans that others would not be able to reach. He became friends with people there in a labor camp, but his time there ended sooner than the 15 yr. sentence.

On Nov. 8th, 2014 he was released. Kenneth founded the Nehemiah Global Initiative (NGI). The purpose for NGI is to remember N. Koreans, rescue, restore them spiritually, physically and help rebuild them.

Go to his website at http://ngikorea.org/eng/main.php?m1=1&m2=5 for more info.

Kenneth is also the author of, “Not Forgotten: The True Story of My Imprisonment in North Korea.”

You can purchase his book anywhere it’s sold or through amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Not-Fonrgotten-Story-Imprisonment-North/dp/0718079639/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1545489990&sr=8-1&keywords=kenneth+bae+not+forgotte.
