Several years back I had the privilege of hosting a conference through Anchored Souls Ministries and as a part of that conference my friends Aimee and Melissa created a Quiet Reflection Room for ladies to use during the day.
In today’s podcast, I have a heartfelt talk with Aimee about worship, prayer, resting in God’s presence, and creating a Place of Quiet Reflection whether in a room or in your heart.
This type of space could be created anywhere and at any time. During this time of stress, strife, and struggle creating these spaces of rest and renewal becomes necessary.
Try not to let the “place” of the space hold you back. To create a place of rest and reflection, all you really need is a heart to sit in God’s presence, listen, and rest in Him.
To create an actual place of Quiet Reflection, however, here are some tips on how to set it up.
- Begin in the middle and place a soft rug, some pillows, and candles (flameless to insure safety) at the center of the space. This will be the place to begin, quietly sitting, listening and resting in Jesus.
- Around the perimeter of the space, choose a few areas to mark out prayer stations. Ideas for stations include: Praise, thanksgiving, forgiveness, stones of remembrance, confession.
- Play worshipful music
- Surround the space with beauty—greenery, flowers, candles, encouraging signage
