At the Well - Designing Your Spiritual Space

Gathering At the Well

Today the discussion At the Well is about "My Space". That is - my spiritual space.

The question is: "Do you have a favorite "spiritual place" in your home? Is it a room? a closet? maybe a chair?"

In my home like many others, it is hard to get my own space. But I realized the importance of a daily quiet time with the Lord and created my own spiritual space. It has been said that a schedule or routine is nothing more than doing the same thing at the same time, each day. My quiet time is early morning while everyone else is asleep.

Here is my little space, my chair and table:

I keep a little basket with highlighters, notebooks, bookmarks and other things I need to keep handy:

This is where I keep my Bible and any devotional book I am using. The current devotion study I am using is: Life Management for Busy Women - Living Out God's Plan With Passion and Purpose by Elizabeth George. I also keep near the daily prayer calendar "Power Of A Praying Wife" by Stormie O'Martian.


It makes it much easier to have everything in one place and a comfortable place of my own for a daily quiet time. This is the time of day to come and allow God to fill, equip, strengthen and guide for the day ahead. It is a beautiful time of the day which I look forward to.

  8. Yes, that wonderful place of being alone with Him, conversing, meditating and reading. There is nothing like it. Miss a day and it feels like the day is off. Great post!
