There is something joyous, comforting and meaningful about meditating on God. In a day, there is talking and listening to do in prayer; there is worship music as the home’s background or foreground soundtrack; and there is serving and ministering with tasks small and large. But I’m finding it a sweet and rewarding discipline to think about God as I work. Sounds simple, right? Eh.
It’d “work” great for a few hours, or for the first day, but then the intention would get lost amidst other thoughts, plans and tasks. My desire was good, my Object was glorious, but my strategy was lacking.
Then, an idea.
I compiled attributes of God from both of Jen Wilkin’s books on His nature into a pretty list and taped it to the inside of my journal, Bible and now our fridge (there is even a copy folded up in my car, because that’s how much I need assistance). The goal is to glance at it as I walk by the fridge or start to unload the dishwasher or begin cooking a meal. The plan is to choose an attribute, turn it over and around in my heart and mind, worship the Lord and acknowledge both His vastness and His closeness to me. I hope the practice cultivates more awe and enjoyment in our relationship.
I wanted to share it here for anyone who thinks it could aid them in their love and adoration of God throughout the day.
