Quiet time


I love getting into the word of god with my friends,but i think its so importnat to be able to be one on one with the Lord. I find that God speaks to me the most when im in his word all by myself . The reason why its easier for God to speak to me is simply because theres no distractions, even during service its so hard to hear from God because im so busy just trying to take everything in. I have made it a forced habbit to get into the word of God every morning , and its not always easy, but its always worth it.A lot of people including myself ask "how do i hear from God?" and on thing ive learned that so many people dont realize is that Gods word is how he speaks to us, its so simple .
so here are some ideas for quiet time:

1.First thing in the morning
I love reading my bible first thing in the morning because sometimes the negitivity from the day can put me in a mood where i really dont want to read it, so if i read it before my day even starts it prevents most of those negative feelings and its the BEST way to start out the day!


2. In tough situations
Wether its an argument , or just a person whos giving you a bad time, there are certin times when we need to just step back from the situation and go to God .If you give yourself some quiet time with God and give your problems to the Lord he will sustain you.

Psalm 55:22

Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved

3. Before you go to bed
No matter how your day went its always good to end your day with some quiet time with God .
I find that when i talk to God before bed thats when i spill my heat out and tell him EVERYTHING
its usually the easiest time for me too, because by the time i go to bed everyone else is already asleep so its just me and God :)

Sometimes all it takes is a little quiet time to really hear from GOD.

  2. Hi Ali:) Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for following my blog. You have a truly inspiring blog...super cool. I couldn't agree more, it's great getting to spend time with friends and share what God has revealed to one another but there's something special about soaking up God's sweet presence when we spend time alone with Him. Keep on bloggin girl, it's a blessing. God bless!
