Seek First Project: Hear the Joyful Call (Day 47)

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.
    Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.
Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship,
    for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.
They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation.
    They exult in your righteousness. – Psalm 89:14-16

I always intend to spend time with God each day. Quality time, quiet time… don’t you? But my good intentions are so often overshadowed by the busyness of my day. Stress crowds out my prayer time. Anxiety shouts down my hymn-singing. Fear pushes aside my time in the scripture.

It’s time for that to end.

I want to be purposeful about my worship. Daily worship.

Today I want us to create a schedule, sprinkling worship throughout our day. Carving little niches of sacred time that will refocus our minds and hearts on what really matters.

I’m scheduling time for Bible reading, prayer, and singing of hymns. You can schedule whatever activities connect you with God. Whatever activities you want to offer to Him, in reverence.

I’m setting alarms on my phone and laptop, so that no matter where I am or what I’m doing, I will not forget to ground myself in praise and connection with my King.

How else can I possibly hope to chip away at these anxieties and worries, except by seeking first things first?

 

Father God, I long for time with You. I want the focus of my every day to be Your words, Your will. Thank You for meeting me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
