Being in need of fresh inspiration is no new problem. Quiet time in the word with Jesus can be such an incredible time. Yet, every once in a while (and a few times in between! 😉 ), thoughts and emotions become too overwhelming or simply more appealing than concentrating on what you’re reading. We all know that moment when we suddenly realize we have no idea what we just read (#allthetime).
I’ve pulled together some amazing verses for you to help you refocus your mind, rejuvenate your soul, and empower you for your day. Don’t forget that prayer is also a powerful thing. It’s not just talking; it’s conversing with God! How beautiful is that? 🙂
20 Empowering Verses for Your Quiet Time
Before we jump in, I’d like to say that keeping a devotional/prayer journal is a wonderful journey tool. You can write down prayers, thoughts, Bible verses, or whatever is on your heart. It’s a great way to think things through, get things off your chest, and remember special Bible verses. Being able to look back through to regain inspiration, remember things you went through, etc, is a wonderful help as well. Okay, enough of that, let’s get on to the verses! 😉
