Umm... I want to be honest with you...
I love Jesus... I am married to a pastor... I lead our young adult women's ministry... I came to know Jesus when I was pre-teen... And, sometimes I struggle with spending quality quiet time with Jesus.
Now, that I have been honest, will you too?
The crazy thing for me is that I LOVE quiet time! I love being in my prayer closet with my cozy blanket, my journal, my Bible, and either a cup of coffee/tea or a smoothie. I love being with Jesus. I absolutely love it!!! But, it does not mean that it always comes easy to me. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the cares of life and other times I feel so distance because of a decision I have made or because I really wanted God to handle a situation in my life differently (and, do not read this as if you have never pouted with God). Honestly, way too often I will pray during my morning shower time and may even read and think on a scripture I come across from Instagram without being intentional about my quiet time. No matter what I say, there is no excuse for me not giving God my best everyday!
Over the past few years, I have noticed this isn't a challenge isolated to me but for so many other women in different seasons of life. And, maybe you?!
You may be a new Christian who wants to learn how to spend time with Jesus or you may be a lifelong church member who needs a reboot. Starting Friday, September 1st, I invite you to join me on a 10 Day quiet time challenge.
The purpose of the challenge is to help you begin creating a new habit of spending time with Jesus. I pray your heart is touched and you experience Jesus as the Most Intimate Lover of Your Soul. I pray you are set free from condemnation, fear, guilt, shame, and inadequacy. I pray that you will hunger for more of King Jesus and that you find yourself spending more than 10 minutes with Jesus! My prayer is that at the end of our 10 days you will have a scheduled time, place, and plan for your quiet time.
I BELIEVE IN YOU!! I AM HERE FOR YOU!!
Here's what you can expect during "10 Minutes for 10 Days":
Will you join me?
Each day, I will share the scriptures, questions, and video right here on my website.
