Putting God in Your Life

It Is Written, Psalm 107:8, oh that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and His wonderful works to the children of men.
If you are searching for God, you go after all of the information you can get. Undoubtedly you have seen many preachers, and plenty of regular folks writing messages similar to this one. Maybe you think everyone is telling you that you must be thinking about God, and reading the Bible all of the time. Possibly some people do, but the rest of us probably don't.
It is a good idea to take some time at the beginning of the day for private time with the Lord. The amount of time isn't as important as the quality of the time. Ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom, guidance, and help for the entire day. Then relax for a while and just listen. There is no set amount of time.
During the day do your best to be the way you would be if Jesus was watching you in person. Be kind to others, even while you are driving.
As you go through the day just say thank you Lord for loving me. Ask Him to make Himself known to people you see. Bless people you see in Jesus name. There is no quota, but don't be stingy. Even bless and pray for people you don't like. Do it all with as loving a heart as the Holy Spirit gives you.  All it takes is about 10 seconds here and 15 seconds there.
Find time to read a chapter or two in the Bible. If you really consider what I have said, you will see that these suggestions do not amount to drudgery. So praise the Lord, and do what you know you should do. Do all of it with the love of Jesus in your heart. As you do, you are praising God, and God is blessing you. One more point. You can be happy knowing that you are doing what God put you here to do. One thing you must realize, is that if you live life this way, it is no less to God than what preachers do. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
