Last week I joined a Good Morning Girls Group made up of Homeschooling Moms from all over the country. We share each day what we are reading in our Quiet Time. I have been thinking about my Quiet Time and what I can do to improve it. This morning I read in Proverbs and then picked up a bible study I did a few years ago. It is "Powerful Promises For Every Woman" by Elizabeth George. It is based on Psalm 23. This particular chapter is called "God's Promise of Rest".
"He makes me to lie down in green pastures." Psalm 23:2
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29
I would like to share what Mrs. George says on page 51:
"Dear one, as sheep who belong to the Great Shepherd, we, too, can partake of the green pastures. How? By having a "quiet time". We have all the Shepherd and all of His Word available to us...if we will simply lie down in His green pastures and partake! All we need to do is stop everything and enjoy a time of resting and lingering with the Lord as we feed on His Word."
Not sure where to start? Just start. Open God's precious Word and take it in. Surely you will be rested and refreshed. Enjoy the green pastures today!
