So, what does that look like? Think about it this way, when something really great happens in your life - a total surprise - who do you share your excitement with first? Friends, family, spouse, Facebook fans??? Who do you invite in for the thrill of the moment, first? A life in constant conversation with God will rejoice with God, first and then others.
When tragedies arise, a life in constant conversation with God will weep in the Savior’s arm, first. I know God already knows, but I’m going to tell God all about it anyway. Depending upon what it is, I may or may not share it with others, but I’m going to my Father, first.
My desire is to live my life in constant conversation with God. When I’m doing the laundry, housework, errands, etc., I’m chatting with my Savior. I’m thanking Him for the energy to be able to haul one more load of laundry. I thank Him for the nice big front loaders we have, I thank Him that I have a sound mind and can operate the machines. These might seem like little things, but my mom had dementia and was incapable of doing simple tasks such as laundry. I thank Him for ordinary in life.
