How to Incorporate God in Your Daily Life
January 20, 2019
Nowadays, we have so much to deal with in our adult lives. We have to work on our professional life, have to strengthen our family ties, have to reserve some time for our social life. It can be hard to find some time to spend on the spiritual part of our lives.
But incorporating God into our daily lives shouldn’t be too difficult. With the number of responsibilities we have to pay attention to, it’s perfectly understandable that some of us don’t really have time to go visit the church to pray or even open the Holy Bible and read once a day.
But, these aren’t the only ways we can incorporate God in our hectic schedule. Other than going to church and reading Bible verses, you can make sure God is in your life each day by:
Saying a little prayer of grace before or after meals.
Giving grace shouldn’t take more than five minutes. Just say a short prayer of gratitude for the food on the table and that would be more than enough.
Appreciating the little, everyday blessings that come your way.
Blessings don’t always come in big sizes, they aren’t always in the form of getting a huge pay increase or winning the lottery. It can be as simple as your kids being able to get to school safe, the weather is lovely, or you not being stuck in traffic on your way to work. You can thank God for these little things, too.
Making it a habit to help others.
Help doesn’t always need to be big donations made to the charity or sponsoring a child’s education. It can be as simple as helping an old lady with her bags or helping an overwhelmed co-worker with their job. My friend from carpet cleaning Airdrie makes a point to do this everyday by wearing a “good deed” reminder bracelet. Godliness comes in many forms, and you being helpful without expecting anything in return can just be one of the many ways you can include God in your life.
This is easier said than done, but if you start to practice giving forgiveness every day, you can make it a habit. Try to let go of little things or simple misdeeds others have done to you such as being rude. Don’t hold grudges and forgive them instead.
Being kind as often as you can is one of the best ways you can live God’s way. You can be kind every day by not engaging in gossiping, or trying to understand other people as much as you can. You can also practice kindness by being more considerate and sensitive to other people’s feelings.
