It’s a new year and we asked recently what YOU wanted to hear on The Wonder Podcast! Well, you answered us and Quiet times, what, how, when, where, why, were at the top of the list! So we decided to tackle this idea with one of our favorite gals, Liz Steckel.
Liz is the brains behind our social media accounts and helps us from every angle quite honestly. And she’s also super tight with Jesus. We knew we could have her on the show and she would share from her heart why time with the Lord is so worth it. She didn’t disappoint.
In this episode, you’ll hear how Liz tackles each day. She uses a plan she calls, READ. PRAY. LISTEN. Each day she reads several chapters of a book in the Bible (she started in Genesis), one Psalm and one Proverb. Then she prays and listens. And she does this mostly at 4am. ☺
Liz says her consistent quiet time began when her first daughter was born. She has walked with the Lord and met with Him her entire Christian life, but consistently? Like most of us, she struggled. But when Savannah was born, things changed. As she was up in the middle of the night with her newborn, she heard the Lord quietly ask her, “if not now, when?” And her early morning pursuit of Christ began.
“I want to learn from and encounter the living God!” Liz
Psalm 63, “God, you’re my God! I can’t get enough of you! I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God, traveling across dry and weary deserts. So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, drinking in your strength and glory.” 1-4 MSG
So if you’re curious about why we need a quiet time, what it might look like in your life, or how to get started tune in to this episode of The Wonder Podcast. Remember, time with God isn’t a check in the box. It’s fuel for our lives. We need Him every day. Every hour. Every minute.
