Life can get very busy these days. Everyone is on the GO and moving at the speed of technology. In this hurried life, at times, it’s easy to forget that God’s grace is what makes this life even possible. God’s Grace is what allows us to breathe, laugh, love and flourish day-to-day.
What are some ways that you might be able to bring God back to the forefront of your thinking and your day? It could be something as simple as a prayer before a meal, or prayer of “Hello, Lord” before you roll out of bed for the day. Maybe while you’re at the gym, play Christian music on your iPod instead of the usual. Write Scriptures on post it notes and pin them up around your home to keep the Lord and His promises surrounding you.
Have you ever thought about having a prayer closet… a literal closet that could shut out this busy, loud life and become a sanctuary for you to sit with God in prayer or meditation?
We can’t get so busy that we forget who makes this life possible, and if we do, something has got to change. Take a few minutes out today to assess your schedule and see if you even give 10% of your day to God? If we even begin by simply acknowledging His presence – that’s a step forward. We can walk in constant communication with Him just by being aware that He’s with us.
Ephesians 2:4-9 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
