“God, examine me and know my heart; test me and know my nervous thoughts.” (Psalm 139:2)

Imagine considering every moment as a potential time of communion with God. By the time your life is over you will have spent six months at stoplights, eight months opening junk mail, a year and a half looking for lost stuff (double that number in my case), and a whopping five years standing in various lines, (more if you work in the military).

Why don’t you give these moments to God? By giving God your whispering thoughts, the common becomes uncommon. Simple phrases such as “Thank you Father,” “Be sovereign in this great hour, O Lord,” “You are my resting place Jesus” can turn a commute into a pilgrimage. You needn’t leave your office or kneel in your kitchen, just pray where you are. Let the hanger become a cathedral or the workshop a chapel. Give God your whispering thoughts.
