I realize the title of this post is a bit controversial, as quiet times should be the most important thing in your schedule. Since I’m trying to be real with you, know that I’ll be the first one to use “I didn’t have time” as an excuse for not doing my quiet time. It isn’t that I don’t want to do it, or I truly don’t have time, it’s often that I just simply didn’t put it first.
I’ve tried doing my devotional at night before bed, and I’ve done it first thing in the morning. I’ve done it during my lunch break and in my classroom right after school. Here’s what I’ve noticed though- during any of those times, it’s highly likely that I’ll be interrupted.
I have found a solution that works, though. My drive to work, after my children are dropped off, is my time alone. At those moments, when no one else is in my car, I listen to an audio devotion and I pray. There is no one in the car to interrupt me, and if someone calls, I can let them leave a voicemail.
My days tend to run more smoothly if I’ve started it off with prayer and a devotion. I’m glad I can use my time in the car, because then I’m not likely to be interrupted, and it frees up the rest of my time for my family and household tasks.
