No Spend July Day 26: Quite Time














“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

There are many ways to spend your quite time each morning. You can meditate stretch/deep breathing, sit in nature, listen to relaxing or motivating music with a cup of tea/coffee, read the bible, do a devotional, and pray. Create a peaceful quite place for yourself to spend your quite time and move to a study area if needed for your bible and devotional time. Use what you have to create a quite time without worry of making it perfect or spending money.  

You can listen to your own collection of music, listen online for free, or borrow from the library. There are many different bible reading plans to follow or make up your own plan. There are great devotional book you can read or do an on-line program. Pray for healing strength and grace for all aspects of your life - financial, physical, spiritual and emotional. Be thankful and count your blessings.

How do you spend your quite time? Do you need to create a quite time routine?


I like having my time in the morning but I do it at other times in the day too. I like to spend a couple minutes as soon as I get up in the morning in mediation and prayer. I do a 10 minute stretching routine. In the afternoon I sit down in one of my quite spaces to do my Prayer, Praise, and Devotion time. In the evening I repeat the same routine as my morning. My morning and evening are done in my bedroom with no supplies needed. My afternoon time is when I use my supplies in my quite spaces.

I've made it easy on myself by creating a couple quite areas in my home for my Prayer, Praise, and Devotion time. I use each space depending on the time of day, how much traffic the area has, or whatever space I feel like using. I’m currently not using the quite space in my guest room because my daughter and her husband are living with us. I have a couch in my guest room and a flower pot where I store my supplies in my china cabinet. I have a quite spot on my living room couch with my supplies in my end table. I have a couch and supplies in my master bedroom. I have supplies in my little office and use them there or the kitchen table. It makes it so much easier

I didn’t buy any supplies to create my quite spaces I used what I had. I have a bible, devotional, prayer book, notebook, pen, and a token item in each quite space. My token items are things like a rock with scripture and a cross from my walk to Emmaus.
