Luke 6:12 – About that time Jesus went off to a mountain to pray, and he spent the whole night there.
This is my special chair. I call it my quiet chair.
This winter, I purchased my quiet chair. And this is where I often begin my days. Just a special place where I can sit down with a cup of coffee and be with God. Read. Journal. Pray. Be still.
It’s my Mary chair, not my Martha chair.
When I was attending seminary, a professor told us about her Sabbath chair. The place where she would go to be with God. She knew God was everywhere; that God was always with her. Her Sabbath chair was where she went to quiet herself and just be with God.
It’s taken me 18 years to get my quiet chair. My Sabbath chair. A little place where my attitude is just a hare different. A place where my heart can slow down. Pause. Listen.
Do I make it to my quiet chair EVERY morning? Not necessarily. But if only for a few minutes, this is where my day begins best.
God is everywhere and anywhere. God journeys with us all day and night long. But sometimes, it’s nice to have a little spot where we can go and remind ourselves of this.
It’s my special chair. My quiet chair.
For this, I am grateful.
Lord Jesus – thank you for the wonderful example of spending quiet time with your heavenly Father. Before so many decisions were implemented by you, you first confirmed them with your God. May this example be replicated in my life. Thank you for this little place where my heart can slow down and I can just be with you. Amen.
