2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
We need reminders throughout the day to practice the presence of God.
John Ortberg writes, “It can be helpful to keep certain physical reminders of God’s presence nearby. I have some stones with certain words inscribed on them that speak deeply to me about God’s care. One stone reads “Joy.” Another says “Courage.” A third one just has the word “Yes.”
Each reminds me of the spirit in which I want to work. They tell me that I’m not alone. Also, I have a crown of thorns and a nail on a credenza that speaks to me of God’s sacrificial love. I have pictures of the people I love, through whom God most often speaks to me.” (GICTYT, P. 72)
What physical reminders might you set up around your home or work place that will help you practice the presence of God?
