Loud Time..Time spent with the Lord

Confession time.  After the coffee is made, before the household arises, I sit at the kitchen table. Surrounded by light music and a Bible, you would think I could just "enjoy God".  However, as soon as I am not physically busy, my mind races.  If brain waves could be measured, I think I would get a gold in the 50 yard dash.

I need help.  Thankfully, I found it.  No, it is not medication (ha ha).  I needed a simple framework to ask myself some question around the Bible to keep me focused on Him.  My favorite one I have been using come from the Tapestry of Grace creator Marcia Somerville  In time, I found my modifications on her "journaling form" is what helps me best.

My mother who has been up here for the past 6 months, asked me about the paper I use while spending time with God.  Since I spent hours creating it, I decided to give it to you. If you want it, I will email it to you as a pdf.  ellaembree@gmail.com

I do have a section called "other projects," so that if my mind gets racing, I just got a note there.  That gives me the freedom to spend time listening to Him.

Please let me know if you like it or if it is helpful in your journey with the Lord.
