Chasing Quiet Day 29: Drawing Near

Chasing Quiet Day 28: In Him

 

#31daysofquiet day 28 BQBible Quilt your selected verse: Recognize that some days you may be distracted.

Bible Quilting offers movement through writing, coloring, or embellishing to focus your attention.

I often find that as I go through the motions of putting a verse on a page, my mind slows down and I have a greater sense of calm when I’m finished.

The colorful washi may lure us in, but it’s the Word that causes us to linger.😉

Pray. Father God, draw us into Your Word today. Let us feel Your presence in these sacred moments we set aside time to explore Your scripture. Cultivate in us a desire to linger longer so we have more of Your resources resonating within us.
