Try something new. Try to set aside every day as a time for God. This doesn’t mean to set aside a time for God every day. This means to make the whole day a day for God. This means to see everything and everyone as a messenger from God. This means to welcome everything and everyone as divinely sent.
This isn’t easy to do, and not everything and everyone is that great to meet. Some experiences are downright scary. Some are simply boring. Do it anyway. Every day, draw a line around the day. Stand inside that place, waiting for God. It is like cleaning your house, waiting for a guest to come.
Set the intention every morning that today is a sacred day. Set the intention that this day is God’s day, and this day is special. It is like going on a retreat every day of your life. This way, everything has a special luster. Everything is a message. Everything has more meaning. It makes you more alert. It means that you don’t take anything for granted. It means that you are waiting, lamp lit, for the Bridegroom to come.
