Devotions, quiet time, morning time, personal worship, Bible study, daily devos, meditations…the idea of spending time with God in His Word has taken on quite a few different monikers over the years.
Perhaps it’s just semantics for really whatever name is used, the act of personal worship usually looks about the same. But sometimes it’s the name that we get hung up on. The words quiet and morning can feel like a weight. In most of our homes, things are only quiet for what feels like 2 seconds in any given 24 hour period. And for some of us, meeting God in the afternoon or evening ends up being much more meaningful.

Does doing our devotions amidst noise or at a different time of day count as a loss then? Of course not, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t sometimes feel the pressure to get it right or else. As if it is just another box to check in the day. A religious duty rather than a relationship delight.
The lovely September is not with us today. But as always, we’re still a trio. Asheritah Ciuciu has joined us to talk about our personal time in the Word.
Asheritah is the founder of One Thing Alone Ministries and author of several Christian women’s resources including her latest book that just hit shelves today, October 2st. It’s called Bible & Breakfast.
