Trick or Treat (Quiet time)

“Quietness is the classroom where you learn to hear My voice. Beginners need a quiet place in order to still their minds. As you advance in this disciple, you gradually learn to carry the stillness with you wherever you go.”
Sarah Young, “Jesus Calling®”

Today is Halloween. I’m not much into celebrating this day. Many people are looking for treats today, so I’m throwing a non-perishable one out on my blog.
The above quote can be life changing if you allow it to be. Do you seek out quietness? Do you set a time to listen for God to speak?  Is there time in your crazy schedule of a moment to pause and catch your breath?

I challenge you to honestly answer those questions. If you don’t have a set quiet time, make one. Set at least 5 minutes each day to be still. If you have a set time, I encourage you to increase it at least 5 minutes. If you practice quiet time regularly and see no results, I urge you to seek out an accountability partner (see my Buddy System blog for details).

If you start your day relaxed, then the rest of it is more likely to be pleasant. 🙂
