Making time each day to thank God

Posted in , Jun 4, 2010


“I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.”—Psalms 69:30

I slid into the front seat of my friend’s car and almost knocked a little book to the floor. As I grabbed for it, I saw it was a Bible.

“I use that while I’m waiting at a train crossing,” she said. “I used to sit and fume as those freight cars clicked past. Then I realized I could make that part of my day’s worship time. Try it,” she said. “You’ll be surprised at how rewarding it is.”

I did try it, and it is rewarding. So rewarding that it became a real challenge to find different opportunities during the day for my mini-devotional periods. While I wash dishes, run the vacuum cleaner, garden—all of these are great times to recite or memorize scripture verses, singing hymns or lifting up thankful thoughts to our Father.

And how good it is, when sleep comes, to realize how much time I’ve spent with Him that day!
