You’re busy. You work at a job, or at home, or a mix of both. You’re a parent.
You’re also a caregiver for a loved one; you’re an unsung hero.
Or maybe you struggle with chronic pain.
Maybe you think connecting with God is complicated and for other people.
I have good news for you:
Whatever your situation, here are ten simple ways to connect with God. I’ve used each one.
- Talk to God as you go about your day. No need to be fancy. Just honest.
Brother Lawrence in his classic book, The Practice of the Presence of God, talked to God daily and after decades, he said he felt as close to God while he washed dishes as when he prayed. (A goal to aspire to in my walk with God.)
- Go outside. Walk and talk.
Or you can be quiet and observe: what do you see? Hear? Smell? Touch? If you can’t go outside, find a book or a website with photos of nature (trees, sky, meadows, flowers, birds etc.) you can enjoy.
- Sit and close your eyes. Take a deep breath, slowly exhale. Repeat a few times.
