Work And Worship

Men... Each day we get up early, and go to work. We try to provide for our families as best we can... a heavy burden, to say the least. But, do we make time for worship? Is your day, your walk worshipful to your Maker, your Savior?
My day starts at 5:20am. After hitting snooze on my cell phone at least three times, I jump out of bed in a rush. On a good day I even get a lunch packed. But, this year I'm trying something new. Instead of only praying as I doze off each night, I now take a moment to get on my knees and pray before leavng home. I also pray aloud in my truck while driving the thirty minute commute to work each morning. There's just something about bowing, humbling yourself before God... And praying out loud keeps you focused, really talking with God. I have found that each day is much more worshipful when I carve out a few extra minutes for God. And, somedays when the weather is good I've went walking on my lunch break, and just talked with God, praying for my wife and others in my life. It's amazing how close you feel to God when you put the needs of others first.
And, no... I don't normally have the simplest of work days. My days usually consist of a hectic few hours first thing, followed by catching up on the days work while getting interupted left and right, and ending with a frustrated rush to get out of the office in time to rush home and spend some time with my wife, the best part of my day. Long days... I know! I think some guys have it better than others, but then again do we really know what kind of life the other guy lives. I'm just happy my life is somewhat simple. The Lord is good to me, and I need to make time to recognize my Maker each day. After all, they are His days, not ours!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very honest and to the point. Our Christian life is to be based on being "rightly related to God".That begins in prayer and spending time alone with him. I like your observation about "bowing before him". Remember in 1st Kings Elijah stood tall agaisnt sin and evil but bowed low befor our great God. Praise him for the gift of humility! Nice job Brother.

Encouraging to see you speak to other men, who, yes....really do share a heavy burden to take care of their families. YES, women also have heavy burdens of their own, (I am one of them), however....they are different.

What a wonderful reminder to pray at all times! Whether we're at work, in the park, or at home, we should always be worshipful to the Father. It reminds me of the song "Made To Love" by TobyMac from the way you begin it. Great article! Keep up the writing!

What a wonderful reminder to pray. I could tell your heart was behind every word you wrote. You did a great job of getting right to the point without losing your passion. Shann
