If you consider the way your day unfolds, you’ll find a rhythm. Eating breakfast, reading the paper, driving to work, checking email, meetings, phone calls, going to lunch, sundown, bedtime – these things make up the rhythm of our lives and will dictate not only the physical aspects of our day but the spiritual as well.
Did you ever think that the best way to be a disciple may not be to spend an hour a day in reading, meditation and prayer? Many of us resolve to begin there and are soon frustrated. Perhaps the reason that it is not sustainable is that the rest of our day is not set up to point us toward God. It seems we make the physical expression of our faith so difficult – as though grand gestures are the only things worth our time.
