How are you recharged? 

In what ways are you renewed in your efforts to get into the Word daily?

Who might you invite to join you as an accountability partner to continue your daily Quiet Time throughout the busy holiday season?

Preparing our hearts will help keep us grounded.

Chasing Quiet Day 31: Lasting Beauty

 

Bible Quilt your selected verse: If you’ve kept your template page loose, go ahead and attach it to your journal page. We like to add washi tape around the border to frame it and keep it more secure.

Now that you’ve completed your 31-day pages, you can display them by standing your journal upright on a counter or table. It’s a colorful reminder to you, your family, and guests of God’s timeless truths each day.

Your #biblequiltjournal can also be used as a prayer reference.

Claim specific scriptures for particular people for whom you are praying.

Sometimes I’ll snap a pic of a portion of a Bible Quilt page and text it to a friend, simply adding that I’m praying this verse over her.

Sharing the Word of God, personalized in your own handwriting, can have a powerful impact…for both of you.

Pray.  Lord, thank you for the guiding truth of Your Word that is timeless and applicable for us today. Help us lean into it together, supporting one another in the beauty of your scripture.

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?

Bible Quilt your selected verse:  Starting a fresh #biblequiltjournal page is full of choices.  Choose whichever block you’d like to continue your 31-days of verses. You can do the same color palette or mix it up a little!

Consider partnering up with a friend to pray the same series of verses over a particular period of time. Or maybe you’re ready to Bible Quilt with a friend to support each other? We have a lot of options re: how we can train in the Word together.

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.

Day Ten

Find a quiet place to read your devotional today. 

Be StillHow does today’s verse resonate with you?

Take a moment to be intentionally still.

Quiet your mind as you pause your body.

Breathe.

Move forward with a more purposefully slow pace and see how long you can maintain this posture of stillness…

 

Be Still

Chasing Quiet Day 10: Be Still

 

Bible Quilt your selected verse: 

As we decorate our #biblequiltjournal page day by day, it’s a tangible reflection of His Word building in us.

Sometimes I’ll go back and add a touch of color to a previous day, scanning the scripture again and making connections I haven’t made before.

Pray.  Lord, it is so hard for us to slow down and BE STILL to soak in Your presence. Help us pause long enough to get ensnared in Your purpose for us today.

Day Nine

 

Slip away from the hustle & bustle to find a quiet place to read your devotional. 

How does today’s verse impact you?

Carving out some solitary moments in our day is a challenge. 

Take a moment to reflect on your verse today and how it might ground you in your interactions with others today. 

Chasing Quiet Day 9: Seek It

Bible Quilt your selected verse:  Let the process of writing slow you down a little bit today. As we read and write scripture, it sinks in a bit deeper and we become more familiar with the cadence of God’s Word.

You may even be surprised to discover that you’re memorizing scripture through Bible Quilting!

Even though we think we’re embellishing through stickers or washi tape, the Word is actually being written upon our hearts as we linger and decorate our #biblequiltjournal pages.

Restore my body from its daily weariness.

Restore my soul as I sink into Sabbath rest with You.
