About the Author

I love the Lord, my husband, and all things crafty! I am newly married and loving it! Being a wife is a challenge and a blessing, and I am so thankful to be experiencing it. I live with my hubby on the central coast where I teach high school English...

  1. Amen! I really like how you stated that ‘me time should be we time’. So true! Next time I go on to spend time alone, I won’t! — I’ll spend it with God.
    Thank you for these truths…

  2. I so much appreciate this post today! Lately I’ve felt a tug to get away and write with God – taking myself away from distractions to hear what He wants me to write about, and to just listen to His prompting and most of all to receive His peace. Your post today can transform thinking!

    Rich blessings in your quiet time, Jenny…

  3. Great post and much to think about. I agree that nothing is wrong with the manicure, shopping, etc but as you stated is our spiritual tank being refueled.
    “Sure, it is nice to get some time away and there is nothing wrong with enjoying a night off or a foot scrub, but are we spiritually full when we do those things?”

    We need that “we time” where God can speak to us and pour into us so that we can pour out to others. I agree with Amy’s response above. I want to write (journal) what God speaks to me – I don’t want to write just for the sake of writing. And I think you wrote today what God placed on your heart to help us align our priorities.

    Thanks and Be Blessed.

  4. So often I push aside my time with God for “productive” things that “need to be done”. How convicting! Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Very true! The only way to truly “recharge” is to spend some time with our source of strength. Great post! 🙂

  6. Such a great post. I’m guilty of using “me time” for productivity or relaxation but never feeling fullfilled. Lately I keep thinking maybe I need a week away from all responsibilities to relax and have “me time”. To be honest, “me and God time” would not have been on my mind. Thanks for letting God speak through you.

  7. Me time as We time…love that thought! And isn’t it amazing that the God of the universe WANTS to spend time with us? Wow, I will never get over how cool that is!

  8. I’ve been asking the Lord to take away that desire for me time. I think He is, and I think I am much more satisfied with this beautiful, rich life because of it.

  9. You are so right. I find that “ME time” finds me just wanting more, it doesn’t satisfy. The more I have, the more I want! But “WE time” equips and encourages me for daily challenges.

    Of course we need time for things we enjoy, but this is a great reminder to put those things in perspective.
