Devotional time is a focused, intentional quiet time that is set aside to spend with God through prayer, reading/studying Scripture, or journal writing. Devotional time can include many different methods of connecting with God that include singing, writing, meditating, and/or listening to Christian worship music. There is not one “right” way to spend your devotional time with God – it is most important that we just come.
We come to God just as we are as broken vessels looking to be filled and empowered by His presence. Amidst our daily, busy lives and routines, it is essential that we commit to strengthening and prioritizing our time with God.
When I spend consistent, uninterrupted devotional time with the Lord, my mind is renewed, God speaks to me through His word, and I am strengthened to start my day. For a brief moment, I quiet my soul and surrender my burdens to the Lord. Throughout the year, cultivating our relationship with the Lord is important and summer is a great season to renew a consistent devotional practice.
