 “If Christ does not reign over the mundane events in our lives, He does not reign at all.” Dr. Paul Tripp

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 Amplified Bible

The Christian faith is meant to be lived moment by moment. It isn’t some broad, general outline–it’s a long walk with a real Person. Details count: passing thoughts, small sacrifices, a few encouraging words, little acts of kindness, brief victories over nagging sins. Joni Eareckson Tada

Every morning during morning prayers I ask Jehovah to guide my thoughts, words and actions to bring praise and glory to His beautiful name and to guide the lost to Him.

When in moments of impatience (like in a check out line in the store when someone is taking too much time) I silently ask Jehovah for patience when I want to blow up and scream will you just hurry up (I believe that comes from our hurry up world and instant gratification) and a feeling of peace comes over me and begin talking with someone in the check out line and relieve their stress as well.

When I see someone covered with tattoo’s and body piercing that in my opinion makes them look like freaks in a side show I pray that Jehovah reminds me that He loves everyone and sometimes talk with them and sometimes discover they are nice folks.

When I see elderly needing help with their groceries in the parking lot I gladly help them as an act of civility and silent glory unto Jehovah.

Sometimes I encounter someone who is obviously having a bad day and make a stupid joke to get them laughing and start talking to help relieve their stress and maybe through our conversations I can share resources with them that will help them (like a support group). I also ask them their name and if I can pray for them. The look of shock and gratitude on their faces is priceless.

What ways do you live the Christian life moment by moment every day?

The Christian life is not one to be lived on Sunday in church by in every waking moment of our daily lives. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with Your daily fellowship and guidance so as to bring glory to Your Holy name and to guide the lost unto You. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and pray for it through the name of He who walks with me through Your beautiful garden (nature). Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
