4 Ways to Grow Your Faith During the Day
Everyone always sounds so busy, right? The automatic response to "How's your week/day/whatever going?" is either "good" or "busy." We absolutely need to be taking time out of our busy schedules to spend time with God on a daily basis, but there are other ways we can build in times to focus on God. Even if it feels like you don't have any spare minutes in your day for "one more thing," here are a few suggestions for directing your attention to Jesus in the midst of busy-ness (business?? English is hard.)
Real talk: I'm not good at doing these things yet, but I plan on implementing them this month. It takes effort to redirect the focus onto God during the day, but it's important and I'm going to get better at it!
1. Listen worship music on your morning commute! Feel free to check out my Starting the Day playlist if you need somewhere to begin.
2. Walk and pray. (Or run/bike/lift...whatever, you intense exercise people.) It's exercise, and it gives you a chance to set everything else aside and have a conversation with Jesus. If you don't already have workout time built into your day, this may feel like one more thing. Sorry?
3. Listen to Scripture while you do little chores, like washing the dishes or folding the laundry. This is a great time to listen to an entire book of the Bible straight through--and that really gives you a great overview that you might miss when studying the book chapter by chapter.
4. Memorize verses while you brush your teeth in the morning and evening. Write them on a notecard and stick it on the bathroom mirror, so that every time you reach for that toothbrush you remember and can start reciting the verse in your head. (Or out loud. If you like cleaning up spewed toothpaste.)
What are ways that you incorporate Jesus into your day? And yep, that is my Spanish Bible! It's just the one I had closest to me when shooting pictures, since I try and read a Psalm to Aiden each day. :)
