From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. Psalm 113:3

Just hanging out

It’s 6:00 am, we commit ourselves into getting up, brushing our teeth, cooking breakfast and driving to work. But we are forgetting the most important thing as a Christian, is to pray, meditate and spend a few minutes of our time with the Lord.

My husband and I have a beautiful home on the lake, but we are constantly cleaning it, cutting the lawn, decorating it, always wanting to make it look great. But at the end of the day we feel so exhausted, we just wanted to get ready for bed. Tomorrow we have to do it all over again. We didn’t get to enjoy the clean house nor the beautiful yard and the lake outdoors.

When you and your spouse feel the need to get back to basics, to look beyond the clutter and clamor of this bewildering, complicated world and see what really matters, just go outside together for a moment and gaze upward. No matter what time of day it is, you will witness God’s splendor. You will be reminded of what is your primary purpose in living. The fundamental reason why the Lord created you both and brought you together, is to worship Him.

But we are forgetting the most important thing as a Christian, is to pray, meditate and spend a few minute of our time with the Lord.

Psalm 19 1:2 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.” The home that we live in, the job, the food that we eat, the car we drive each day to work, the air that we breathe, our pets…God made it all, and He is worthy of to be praise.

Spend time with your spouse outdoors now and then, just enjoying the simple things, wondering at the beauty of God’s awesome works, and doing what the Lord created you to do.

I pray that you will have peace and gratification in the midst of chaos…
