Do you have a Bible reading plan? Do you have a set time of day that you read your Bible? If not, what’s holding you back? Choose a Bible Study that is something you desire to have victory in. Do a word study. Read through the Bible, or the New Testament. But come up with a plan if you don’t already have one.
In January, I started the “What Do I Know About My God?” study that Mardi Collier talked about at the Ladies Conference. This study has been such a blessing to me, primarily because I like to write things down, and visually see progress. When I start with a blank piece of paper for a particular characteristic of God, and I come across a verse that goes with that characteristic, it’s so exciting to be able to write that verse down! I was so encouraged when Mardi showed her notebook in the Saturday morning session, and she showed “My God is in Control”. She had a couple pages of verses!!! I only have 1 verse for that characteristic so far!!! To think that someday I will have come across more and more verses, just in that one category alone…it fuels me to keep going!!
Do you have an accountability partner? If getting up before the kids is a struggle, find a friend who can help you stay committed. Send emails in the morning, text each other…whatever it takes!!
What have you found that has helped you in developing a consistent quiet time each day?
