Why starting your day with Bible Time is important?

April 23, 2018

Most things I read about spending time with God they mention something about starting your day with Bible Time. And so thats always kind of been at the back of my mind. I didn’t really apply it to my life most days. I would have my Bible Time sometime during the day and then that would be the end of that.

But something changed in my thinking. In one week the blog posts, sermon or bible passages I read or heard all pointed to a common theme- Prioritise God. At this point I didn’t think I had a problem with that, I had been spending time with God daily but just when it suited me. So it kind of hit be hard then that I had to get my priorities in order.

This is when I really had to put in the hard work.

Making God a priority in my life needed to start with changing my Bible Time routine to first thing in the morning (before Instagram time!).

So I’m working on that routine daily, some days I feel great after spending time with God and other times I don’t really feel much, those days make it harder to come back the next. But God has really been teaching me the benefit of spending time with Him FIRST.

Let me tell you about how I felt recently when I broke this routine and chose Instagram over God first thing in the morning (hey, I’m human too!). The morning was a not the usual routine and we had to be somewhere quite early, so I wanted to make sure I was ready on time instead of Bible time. But then when I had extra time, I talked myself into scrolling through Instagram. I didn’t think too much about the consequences of my decision then and it was only when I got into bed that I realised why I had felt so out of it all day. The only way I can describe that day is that it felt like my heart wasn’t in it. Everything just felt blah, for lack of a better word.

That’s when it actually clicked that Bible Time being apart of my morning routine made me feel ready for the day, it set the tone for my whole day. Like for real it did. I’ve read words like this before and though oh well that works for them. I never understood until I tried it.

Even on the days you feel so unmotivated and tired, it’s important to just show up for Bible Time. It may need to look different from other days but make it a priority to spend time with God.

We are all in different seasons and our Bible Time’s look different, which is totally fine.

Do the Bible Time that fits your journey and connects you to God.

Whether it’s 5 minutes or 50 minutes, does not matter. Make the effort! And maybe mornings just don’t work for you to read your bible, just saying a prayer could be your way of prioritising God.

In this post I wanted to share why I feel mornings are best for me to have my Bible Time- it really doesn’t mean that is the only right time to have your Bible time.

I also want to encourage you to look at Ashley’s Basic Bible course if you are wanting encouragement and guidance for knowing how to study your Bible by yourself. I found this super helpful and highly recommend it. Visit this website for more info.

    I just started following you. I am 39 years old and your blog is extremely inspiring to me. I have not been putting God first and I felt far away from Him. I read one of your posts yesterday and I felt peace and calm and I even had some tears in my eyes. I also struggle with depression. I have anxiety and fibromyalgia as well. I have just recently gotten myself back on track with exercise and diet, but poor God has taken the back seat. I still strive to obey him every day but there has been no bible time and hardly any prayer from me lately. I have been working on putting my own blog together and I am working through the Corporate Rescue Plan. CRP is a program to help bloggers. It said to find someone with a similar blog and to follow them. I saw your posts and decided I will follow you:)

    There is something beautifully sacred about being in the Word in the morning! When I had a different job that started a little later, I would meet my study buddy at Starbucks at 6am, do my Bible study, and then start working on other things until it was time for my day job.

    Now I start work earlier, and I realized that mornings weren’t the best for a routine time for me. Why? Sometimes I’m up early, sometimes I’m not (heavy sigh) and still have to be at work on time. So if I used the morning for that routine, I would often be rushed to finish and looking at the clock. Now I do Bible study on my lunch at the park near my work (I still do have to check the time occasionally because sometimes I get sucked in, but I’m there long enough that I’ve never had to cut things short). And I do my prayer in the evenings because then I really don’t have to care about what time it is or how long I spend in the war room! Sometimes it’s 5 minutes, sometimes 50, usually somewhere in between, but there is nothing else to interrupt or cut that time short, nowhere else I need to be that would be distracting me. It’s a work in progress. Sometimes I wait too late and then I’m drowsy. But I’ve been consistent for 10 months now, so I’ll take it and grow from there!

      Thank you so much for sharing that! I totally agree that when schedules change we might not be able to have our bible time when would like to but as long as find a way to be consistent no matter what, God won’t mind when you spend time with Him. Glad to hear you have found a good routine even in your busy schedule.
