Fill out your Closer Connection to God Form
Last week I discussed how we need to show our closer connection to God so the world and we ourselves will know where we truly live.
This week I have made a fun “Closer Connection to God Form” for you to fill out.
1. When you wake up, what is your first thought?
what must I do today
oh no it’s morning all ready
Good morning, God, You are my One and Only?
2. On arising what do you do first?
start getting ready for my daily activities
wish I were back in bed as I head for a coffee
seek God by sitting quietly before Him (remember seek ye first the Kingdom of God)
3. Throughout the day as you go about your daily routine, when you encounter a problem what do you do?
get frustrated, maybe yell
find someone to blame
aks God for His help and guidance
4. Do you have control of your tongue during the day?
with my family
with my co-workers
with strangers (how about the drivers you feel are not driving the way they should)
Pray for a mouth that glorifies Him all day long, and you will be filled with a sense of His love and approval. ~ Beth Moore Living Beyond Yourself
5. With what do you fill the spaces of your day?
secular talk shows
quiet times of prayer and praise
shopping (just because you like it – buy, buy, buy)
6. At night before you close your eyes what do you do?
go right to sleep
read a light inspiring book
watch nightly news
have a quiet time with God to reflect on my day – the highs, the lows and to lay requests before Him
7. As you drift off to sleep what do you do?
remember where I live – in God’s Kingdom
give Him all my cares and concerns
fret about all that needs to be done tomorrow
fear what I saw in the news and can’t fall asleep
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7, NIV).
Heaven’s bells continually peal with that promise of My [Jesus] Presence. Some people never hear those bells because their minds are earthbound and their hearts are closed. (Jesus Calling)
Keep hearing the bells. Visit this world – enjoy it all – live life to the fullest but live in the Presence of God.
How did you do on the form? Is your closer connection to the world or God? If you want to be closer to God how would you change?
Let’s discuss this. I welcome your thoughts.
