Before Rising from Bed

This entry is part 45 of 63 in the series Being, Knowing, and Doing

Many of us probably have a vague idea of what a “quiet time” is. But should we keep that time confined only to the morning? And what do we do when it feels like God is not speaking to us? We must practice the presence of God every moment of our lives. Otherwise, our relationship with God will slip through our fingers. We will lose our gratitude and forget how to love Him. We won’t remember to love ourselves correctly or to love others compassionately. Relationships take work. More than that, we are creatures of habit.

One tool we can use are spiritual renewal cards that can give us daily reminders of who God is and who we are. The first card begins with the first moments we wake up. Our first thoughts are critical. At the beginning of the day, we immediately make the choice to be astonished by grace. This ought to drive us to love and to gratitude.

This teaching is part of a subseries on the spiritual life and is part 45 of the larger series, “Being, Knowing & Doing: How Godly Principles Strategically Affect Men’s Everyday Lives.”
