Get Your Head in the Game
Is God involved in our carpools, Little League practices, soccer games and basketball tournaments? Are we in a world that is totally irrelevant to our father? Is it impossible to figure out how to apply scripture to our daily existence in our modern world?
I find myself thinking about these things at times. My daily struggles and schedules are what makes my existence unique to me. The commonplace must be a place where I can exist with God and communicate with him or my faith is useless.
He promises to be with me even to the end of the age. Therefore, even the struggles of our modern families and lives are important and relevant to Him. To pray, to praise Him, to celebrate the blessings that He gives is our duty and CAN be an act of worship. We may never do anything TRULY great for God in our own eyes but we can dedicate each day to Him and try to live it as He desires.
When I strive to treat others with grace and patience, when I give encouragement to someone along the way, when I offer a smile, a hug, a touch to a lonely, hurting friend, I am bringing God into MY world and allowing Him to work through me. This is true obedience and true submission to God's work in my life.
These small acts might have a big implication in the light of eternity and we may never know it.
