And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the First Commandment. Mark 12:30
In Mark 12:30, when Jesus was asked by the religious leaders what the single most important commandment was, he told them loving God, and putting him first was the most important thing they could do. Spending time in prayer and worship every day is so important. Learn and study his word by reading the Bible daily. Spending time with God should be your first priority.
It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day craziness of work, kids, school, bills, etc….. We forget to spend time with God every day. Spending time in prayer before you get out of bed in the morning, and before you go to sleep at night is so important. It will help you to center your mind on what’s most important, and it will strengthen your relationship with God and help you to hear that small inner voice that is God trying to speak to you and comfort you.
For me, reading a little in my bible every day, and listening to a Christian radio station in the car and at work, and praying throughout the day has done wonders with helping me to keep my mind centered on God. Singing along with the worship songs on your way in to work in the morning is a great way to get yourself in the right frame of mind. Try it! I bet you will find that you can cope with your day so much better when you have your mind focused on God, and his teachings!
