Sometimes I have to hold something tangible in my hand like a smooth rock.

Find something that helps ground you…

Chasing Quiet Day 17: Our Refuge

 

Bible Quilt your selected verse: 

If you discover you’re getting distracted by all the choices available, simplify the process by limiting the quantity of materials you have in your devotional space. This eliminates decision fatigue and helps you focus on the Word. (It’s easier to choose from 3 marker colors than 25.)

Some days you’ve got to stick with simple just to get done, and that’s ok!

Pray.  Father God, thank you for being our refuge no matter what we’re going through. It’s reassuring to know we have a respite in every storm. Help us to dwell in You today.

Physical activity often spurs our mental clarity and helps us sift through our emotional responses to events of the week.

Listening to an uplifting podcast while I’m out on a walk can refresh my spirit.

How do you pair your physical and spiritual activities?

Pray.  Lord, let us rest in Your Word today.  Rejuvenate our spirits as we strive in each of our own personal journeys, leaning on each other as a community of believers.

Congrats! You’ve made it to the completion of your first page in your #31daysof_____ series!

#31daysofquiet day 15 BQBible Quilt your verse. Today you can fill in your last verse and spend a few extra minutes adding some finishing touches to the whole page. You may choose to add a few stickers to tie in the theme or add some color to balance out the overall effect. Sometimes I will retrace some of the key words to highlight them a little more BOLDly.

The Word of God is powerful in any form. When you’ve fused verses together from all over the Bible, it can make a significant impact. Let this seep in a little deeper today.
