My Tea Spot

As promised... here's where I have tea with God--at least at this juncture of life! It frequently changes with the seasons. My red chair is a happy, contented place for me to be!

Across the room is our stereo, and I love having a remote control--so I can be lazy!--to turn on relaxing, instrumental music to quiet my heart before the Lord. It helps me to listen for His voice and be content to stay in my chair until I hear from Him. There are other times when I need a lift, and I play an upbeat Southern Gospel CD.

Next to my chair, I keep a basket with pens and coloured pencils/pencil crayons to mark things in my Bible, a pencil sharpener, missionaries' prayer cards that I've collected through the years, and my prayer notebook.

My prayer notebook is where I write specific prayer requests, things that I am asking God for, with the date requested. When it is answered, I circle it in red and write the date answered.

We know that, based on Scripture (Jeremiah 33:3 and countless others), God always answers, even when He seems silent. He is a loving Father, not an absent or aloof Father. Maybe for a time, His answer is "Wait" because He is teaching me something, or He has something better than what I asked for! It is exciting to keep track of His specific answers and to be able to look back and see how He is working in my life!

Comment below and tell me where your tea spot with God is, or share an exciting answer to prayer you've had recently! I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Dayna,

    I love this post! I'm always looking for inspiring ways to spend time with God. I don't have a "tea spot", but I just might come up with one!

    You actually read about an answer to prayer in my latest post (the washing machine.) I never cease to be amazed at the fact that He listens to us!

  2. Hey!!!! my name is on that page!!! I'm famous!!!! lol xoxo I'm glad I could be the answer to your prayer :) hahaha ( I wonder what Pastor will think of that one?? It won't let me sign my name but it's me :)

  3. You can still sign your name in the message/post block, REBECCA! :) I'm so happy you are the answer to my prayer too!
