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.

Each day we need a little recharge to push through our day well…

Each week we may need to reboot in some way to stay on track with our goals…

Each new season we may need to freshen up our focus on what matters most…

After tough phases of our lives, we may need to do some more extensive rebuilding

Invite the Lord in to explore ways to infuse Sabbath rest for you today.

Chasing Quiet Day 20: Recharge

 

#31daysofquiet day 20 BQBible Quilt your selected verse:

Sometimes adding a verse to a page will spark an idea for another page.

For instance, this particular verse in Exodus compelled me to do a whole page on Sabbath Rest.

Allow yourself to chase the threads the Lord weaves throughout your devotional time. Supplement with additional reading on particular topics to enhance your understanding of the concept.

I truly enjoyed Shelly Miller’s Rhythms of Rest while I was journeying through my season of Chasing Quiet a couple years ago.

Pray.  Lord, help us develop ways to Sabbath Well.  Refresh our spirits as we attempt to slow down our bodies and mute our racing thoughts to focus on Your Word for us this day.
