Ordinary Moments with God: Making the Most of Time and Opportunities

This year I’m focusing on finding God in the ordinary stuff of life. Each day I will take a picture of something common and consider the spiritual implications.

Here we go…

I get an email on Monday morning telling me the battery on my Fit Bit Charge is low.

I like that it comes on Monday. I’m in the office and it’s not hard to plug my Charge in while I’m sitting and working at my desk.

So while it charges, I sit at my desk. I commit to an hour of sitting still. Not because I’m being spiritual, or even attempting to be productive in other ways.

I just don’t want to take any steps that aren’t going to be counted.

There. I said it. I own my superficiality. I need the external verification. I’m working hard at this weight loss, get healthy thing and I want everything I do to count, to matter.

At one point this morning, I was about to leave my office and I sat back down and checked how much time was left in the charging process. Not much longer.

What would I do with that time?

Time? Make the most of time.

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.” Colossians 5:4

“Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” Ephesians 5:16

How interesting that my Fit Bit can help me decrease physically and increase spiritually.

PRAYER: God as you help me develop habits to improve my health, make me aware of developing my spiritual muscles as well. Help me make the most of time and opportunities. I don’t want to sit around wasting time. Keep filling my ordinary life with your presence. Amen.
