With the coming of my illnesses which include fibromyalgia brain fog and chronic fatigue, coupled with enormous amounts of medication I need to take for my heart complaints and other woes, quiet time for me is not in the morning any more. My quiet time is during the day when my mind is more alert and the pain in my body settles down to a dull roar.
I simply can't take much in first thing in the morning. So for me quiet times must be fitted in so that I can understand what I read and so that I can pray in some semblance of sense. I know that God understands what I am praying about, but I find it vaguely uncomfortable emotionally to not be able to pray coherently.
Because we are all different and our relationship with God is individual, you too will have to find what works best for your own quiet time with the LORD. Just because an early morning works for most, perhaps you will find as I do that some other time in the day works best for you. So even if someone suggests early morning, adapt it for your own needs... after all, the important thing is that you do find time to be alone with God....here is the article I want to share from Christian Women Today...
Find a quiet place. Take your Bible, a notebook, pen, and perhaps a favorite devotional. You can play worship music if your desire. Remain quiet in God's presence. Meditate on His love for you, Sing, or don't sing. But do bask. Drink in the Lord's love, unhurriedly savoring Him. Read His word and listen for His voice.
Note anything God reveals to you. Search your heart. Ask the Lord to reveal areas or issues in your life that are displeasing. Pray for yourself, family, friends, church, and others. But remember, God is sovereign. His ways are not our ways. Be sensitive to His desire for you each moment. It's not about a schedule. It's not about spending a particular number of minutes or hours. Time with Him is about desiring God and pleasing Him.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5:3
