Quiet Time with God: My In-Depth Routine + Ideas, Tips, and Scriptures

Quiet time with God is such an important part of a Christian lifestyle. Being a Christian is about having a deep, intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

When we have a relationship with someone, what do we do? Usually we spend time with them, talk to them, get to know them, and trust them. This is how we should look at the function of our quiet time with God!

What does your time with Jesus look like? Everyone’s may look a little different, but the basic principles are prayer and Bible study. Below I’ve detailed my quiet time routine to show you how I go about these things.

The Power of Your Words: Facing Any Situation with Truth and Faith

Not too long ago God showed me a powerful truth that I know needs to be shared. I believe this truth has the power to change so much about your current mindset, situation, and direction in life.

I know it did for me!

It deals with the very thoughts we think that lead to the words we speak, and ultimately where we’re getting the basis for our beliefs.

It has the ability to completely turn around situations in life and unlock a new level of relationship with the Lord!

Are you interested? Then let's dive in!

God tells us in Proverbs 18 that “death and life are in the power of the tongue” (v. 21), as well as in Proverbs 21 “whoever keeps his mouth and tongue keeps himself out of trouble” (v. 23). All throughout the Bible we see evidence of the amount of power our words hold.

How to Stop Being an Excessive Planner

Are you an excessive planner? A bonafide perfectionist? Maybe even a little bit of a control-freak? Hey.. me too, girl!

I’ve always been religious with carrying a planner, writing down anything and everything that’s going on in my life. You could always count on me to plan any party, trip, or hangout session down to the minute (I apologize to all of my friends and family that I’ve probably stressed to the max due to my obsession).

I’d always get comments like “Why can’t we just go with the flow?” or “Why does it matter if we’re a little late?”

But thinking about just one thing going wrong because I didn’t plan everything down to the smallest detail gave me nightmares. I’ve always thought that the perfect plan was the solution to any problem!

But what if trying to have the perfect plan is the actual problem?

Healthy Night Time Routine Checklist for Better Sleep

If you’re like me, the biggest thing that prevents you from a good night’s rest is your mind!

Swirling thoughts, crazy ideas, silly what-ifs, and replays of the day’s events all bang around together up there like a ball in a pinball machine, making it really hard to relax and go to sleep. Sound familiar?

It’s all apart of our brain trying to process the day and catalogue it away in our memory. But, boy, can it make it difficult to fall asleep on time!

As much as biology plays a part in this, I also think it’s a way the devil tries to get us down and mess with us. Overthinking and racing thoughts are just a couple of the mechanisms the enemy uses to destroy our peace. And what a better time to do it than when we’re lying in bed!

A few years ago, I began a spiritual and emotional journey like no other. It took me through deep valleys and dark days. The road was long, and the weight was heavy.

Personally, I was waiting on a Godly relationship. For the Lord to bless me with my future husband and the man He had planned for me to spend the rest of my life with.

I prayed hard, tried taking the situation into my own hands at times, and got really discouraged along the way!

3 Ways to Grow Closer to Christ and Find Your Purpose!

Growing up, the knives in my family kitchen were always dull. My momma had a fear of cutting herself while cooking, so she never let my dad sharpen any of our cutlery. While she was very content with having to deal with the dull utensils, my sister and I always complained.

It was always difficult to cut through vegetables and fruits, getting even slices was out of the question, and prepping food always took way longer than it should! In the end, cooking with the un-sharpened knives was very frustrating, time consuming, and led to sub-par results.

Sometimes in life, we ourselves can be just like those dull knives!

When we refuse to sharpen ourselves, attempts at fulfilling God’s purpose in our life can be frustrating and seem a little hopeless. It can take longer than necessary and give us results that don’t turn out exactly as we’d hoped.
