Peace and quiet. It’s hard to come by in this season. Try these ideas for finding time to focus on your Savior and the life he gives you.
- Block off 15 minutes of your day to be alone with Jesus. Darken the room and light a candle. Use this time to read a devotion, sing a hymn or pray. Throughout your day, recall this time and let it safeguard your heart against the darkness.
- Refocus your mind through journaling. Pick a specific Bible verse for each day. Dim the lights, write the verse in your journal, and meditate on it. What does it show you about the Light of the world?
- Call the chaos and temptations of this world what they are—attacks from Satan meant to distract you from your Savior! Fight back by repeating these one-word affirmations from Jesus: peace (John 14:27); joy (John 16:24); and calm (Mark 4:39).
