We talked about how not all time spent with Jesus or “quiet times” look the same. This is a relationship and should be enjoyable.
I like to use colorful pens when I journal. I recently found faith stickers at Hobby Lobby and was so excited to use them in my journaling. We discussed how some people like structure with their quiet times but what works for one may not work for another. We can embrace our differences and accept that quiet times are different for everyone.
I like to change it up and sometimes be adventurous. A quiet time by the lake or at a park can be very refreshing (when it’s not 20 degrees!). The girls shared their different preferences for a quiet time. Some liked journaling and some did not.
I shared the book I’m reading, Beth Moore’s Praying God’s Word. That’s the challenge for the next three weeks for the girls. They will try out praying God’s words as they read and meditate on them. If they don’t know where to start, I gave them 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 or Ephesians 6:10-18.
To close, I encouraged each young lady to build an intimate relationship with their Father who loves them deeply. I point out that He has chosen them and set them apart for a purpose that I can’t wait for them to discover which will happen as they draw near to Him!
