I hope y’all had a good weekend. I can not believe it is almost August, this summer has literally flown by!
(Although, I must say I am looking forward to cooler weather…boots, scarfs, hot Starbucks drinks…oh my! Anyways I digress…)
Since joining the Going Beyond team my morning commute is longer than I have had in the past. I have to admit for the past few weeks I haven’t really used that time well. My drive time is usually spent with me toggling between several radio stations and not thinking of much more.
But at the Grand Rapids event last week Priscilla shared about how log an average of 13,500 miles a year in our cars. She mentioned that since we spend so much time in the car anyways we might as well use it for something. This has really inspired me to think about how I spend my time.
So this week I am turning my morning commute into my morning quite-time. I am going to listen to worship music, start memorizing a scripture, and listen to what God is saying to me about this week. The ride to work is actually the perfect time to do this for me…a set amount of time, with only me and the road.
Here is the verse I am focusing on this week:
“Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

How do you spend your time in the car? Have you ever tried a car quiet-time?
Happy driving 🙂
