Everyday Endeavors 

  
One of the most beautiful things you can do for yourself and for those around you is to strip down your relationship with God to daily offerings of worship in your everyday endeavors. 

Making the small mundane things that you do every day like making breakfast, doing the dishes, driving to school, being at work and offering them to God as moments of gratitude.

Doing homework , housework, or career work and offering it to God to bless, fills your silent moments with joy and purpose.

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1 MSG‬‬

You often ask God:
“How do you want to use my life?” 
And He answers: 

“Today.”I want to use your today.  


“I want to use your today to have heaven break through to earth and to infuse My presence into the smallest of things.”

The very best of offerings to God can be the very smallest of them. 

Moments of monotony.

Offerings of  unseen simplicity. 

Little altars of normal and boring and
nonimportant can become a precious gifts to an in-the-moment relationship building God. 

Don’t get caught up in the world’s view of important because God’s definition of important is a daily relationship with you. 

You. 

Your life and all it’s nonapplause worthy moments. 

When you make your everyday endeavors an offering to God, you will find yourself enjoying the abundant life He has promised you.

    Cindy,
    I love your posts. You are a most insightful and grace filled woman.
    (One thing, however, that I have noticed from time to time are some typos in the post, ie, the word, “endeavor”, in this title. I hope it is not bad form to point it out. I’m a former English teacher so these things just kind of jump out at me.)
    I really do love your posts and share them often on a group Facebook page I moderate called, “Mothers Joined in Prayer”. I have also shared your posts at a weekly Mothers’ Prayer group that I facilitate.
    Thank you for sharing your beautifully inspired reflections.

      Thank you, Judy for your encouragement and your editor eyes- I love them and it is received as a gift. I have no illusions about the possibility of typos here. One of the great lessons of a media like this is the opportunity for mistakes when posting. Getting over the fear of not being perfect and hitting publish anyway has been good for me. Later, when I read the blog and see the mistake(s), my heart always sinks. Then God reminds me that He has asked me to be obedient, not perfect. I receive His grace and push publish again.

      What a joy it is to read that you share the posts and how God is using it. Thank you and I will fix this one for those who read it in the future.

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
