Intentional Conversations: How To Ensure You Don’t Forget God by Breakfast Time

Welcome back to another week of Intentional Conversations! Each week, I step out of my comfort zone, and step in front of the camera to talk with you face-to-face.

Today, I want to talk to you about how to ensure you don’t forget God by breakfast time. So many of us are faithful to rise in the morning to meet with God, but by breakfast we’ve already forgotten what the Lord was teaching us. For those of you in the Surrendered Marriage Challenge, you pray for your marriage, but by evening it’s a distant memory.

How can we ensure we are weaving the gospel into every area of our day if we don’t take time to remind ourselves of the most important truth? I’ve got a suggestion! Check out today’s Intentional Conversation, then let me know your thoughts in the comments.

So what do you think? Do you think hard stops would help you meditate on God’s word more faithfully throughout the day?

  1. Good Morning. I really like the idea of incorporating a hard stop into the day, if not once but multiple times throughout the day. I know I have a tendancy to get wrapped up in what is going on around me and forget sometimes what I am thankful for, or have prayed for that morning. This will just allow me the additional time to re-center and re-focus my priorities for the day. I look forward to scheduling my hard stops, thanks for the idea.

  2. Love that you shared this! It is a super idea, because I know we all get so busy trying to keep going with our day we forget these super important things that we need remember! Love the pigtails too! :o)

  3. Leigh Ann you are so beautiful! :o) I really like your solution. I have been struggling with finding a good time for my quiet time. I know morning is best for me, but it’s very difficult with getting up during the night with a baby. I use that as an excuse , which I shouldn’t. Work in progress! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a season where I was getting up early every day for my quiet time. I would write a verse or thought out on an index card that I would carry around with me every day. The way I remembered to look at the card was to pull it out every time I went to the bathroom that really worked to help me remember and think about what God was teaching me..

    1. You are too kind!

      Having a baby who gets up in the middle of the night is hard! I remember those days. I believe God gives even more grace during those seasons.

      I like the writing the verse on an index card. And the bathroom, why didn’t I think of that? I would always write it on an index card, but forget to look at it. It’s amazing what we can remember to do when we set routines in place for it. Thanks for sharing!

      Many hours of solitude and quiet with God will come all too soon. Don’t fret, friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve all been there!

      1. It was easy to find quiet time during the day when I only had my son, but with 2 under 2 life is a lot more crazy. And of course I feel like I need that quiet time more than ever!! I’m excited for my daughter to have a consistent waking time so I can plan to get up a few minutes before her to get some Jesus love.

        Thanks for your encouragement!!

        1. I remember those days..well, with our one baby, of course. I’ll be coming to you for advice whenever the next one comes along. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks! It was my lazy day, I don’t want to comb my hair, but I know I still need to look cute “look.” The husband likes it. All that matters, right? ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. Grateful how you share what Godโ€™s using in your life to encourage and spur others on! The Body Tithe Devotional suggests setting a timer to go off each hour of the day to remind you to connect with God as a way to teach yourself to โ€œpray without ceasingโ€ 1 Thessalonians 5:17

    I like the idea of tying it to a part of your routine! Reminds me that I used to take a deep breath when I was stressed out … so that became a reminder! Deep inhale = rejoice always. Deep exhale = pray without ceasing. Those reminders would spur me give thanks in the midst of wherever Godโ€™s had me at that moment.
