Quiet Time

I hope that you were able to spend some time alone with God in prayer and in His word this week.  For me, I find that I have to really guard my quiet time because if I do not, something else always seems to clamor for my attention and prevent me from spending time alone with God.  I am reminded of the importance of quiet time because it is something that Jesus always made time for.  The Bible says in Mark 1:35 “In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.”  This wasn’t just a one-time occurrence.  We read in Luke 5:16 “Jesus often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.”

Jesus was busy in ministry, there was always something for Him to do.  And yet, even with so much to do and so much to teach, Jesus regularly made time to be with His Father.  It was a time of renewal and refreshing.  If a quite time was beneficial to Christ, how much more beneficial will a quiet time be for us?  We need to make time to be with the Lord.  We need to get away from the distractions and the disruptions and just spend time alone with Him.  We all benefit from a special time with Him; it is a time of renewal and refreshing.  A quiet time does not take us away from what needs to be done, rather it strengthens us for what needs to be done.

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
