Today’s Daily Word – Saturday, January 23, 2010
In God, I find spiritual meaning in everyday life.
Many tasks in daily life may seem mundane or even irritating, so I look for a deeper spiritual significance in each one.
When I’m standing in line at a grocery store, running errands or waiting for a computer program to load, I look for the blessing in it. I may find myself giving thanks to God. I may have the opportunity to connect with another person. My attitude may transform an ordinary experience into a rich and rewarding blessing.
I affirm “Thank You, God,” anytime I find myself waiting. These delays turn downtime into an experience of awareness and meaning.
The human mind may devise many plans, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established. – Proverbs 19:21
I strive to find spiritual meaning in everyday life not just because tasks may seem mundane or I’m bored.
Any time that I can find spiritual meaning or blessing in some task or situation, I am connecting more directly with God, strengthening my relationship. Hence, when I’m in the shower, driving, washing dishes, etc., I can often be found praying in some form either singing, talking aloud, or silently.
In any form, in any way, whatever I am engaged in, especially when I am alone, I take the opportunity to commune with Spirit. There I find peace, there I find meaning in my life.
