How to Structure Your Day so That God Shows Up
So how do you structure your day so that an awareness of God is more consistent? Here are some tips:
- Cultivate Am quiet time. Grab your coffee and a solitary spot and just be. Read the Scriptures, do your journaling and get centered for the day. Invite God into your concerns and hopes for the day.
- Hit the road with prayer. A good practice before commuting is to say a little prayer- for safety, for others on the road, for a good use of time.
- Take a break. I always ask my wife after a busy day, "Did you take some time for yourself today?" Whether it's a walk around the block or an afternoon cup of tea, a break is a little way of practicing Sabbath wherever you already are.
- Examine your conscience. At the end of the day, take stock of how well you did as a person and as a worker. Was mediocrity the norm or were there some moments of excellence?
God's already there. Now it's our turn to show up and show out- for His glory.
