My Spiritual Formation Journey

My spiritual formation is a journey of discovering what prevents me from staying centered, what Jesus’ ministry will look like if I am not centered, and what attitudes and practices will guide me.

Prayer and Spiritual Formation
The main thing that prevents me from staying centered in my spiritual life is when I fail to wake up early enough to have significant quiet time in the morning. Because I choose to have my quiet time in the morning before getting ready for work I need to wake up at 4:30 AM in order to have that quiet time. Waking up at 4:30 AM is tough because it is always dark and it means I need to get to bed early. So, when I have to stay up late to get some work done or have trouble falling asleep at night I struggle waking up early enough to have good quiet time.


Why I Like Quiet Time

One of my favorite parts of the day are the hours from 4:30 AM to 6 AM. 


Because that’s my quiet time.

What’s my quiet time look like?  It means I get to have some time by myself to enjoy a cup of coffee, journal, read my bible, pray, and do any important tasks I “must do” for the day.  Those two hours are the best part of my day because they are time for myself and time for God.
