What do I have for you this week? How about an all access pass to my music library? I’m going to share my Quiet Time Playlist with you, five songs at a time! Isn’t that spectacular?
Every morning I try to wake up and start my day with prayer. I read my devotional and talk to God. I spend my quiet time sitting and waiting for God to speak. While all of this is happening, my speaker is playing my Quiet Time Playlist.
