“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” Psalm 127:1.
If I am mindful of God, I put Him with me in all areas of my life.
If I leave God out, I will suffer the consequences that come with godlessness.
How much of my efforts have been wasted because I have gone off without Him?
I am not guaranteed safety and serenity. But with Him, I can face whatever comes along. Without Him, there is no “safety” net.
If I have Him when trouble comes, I can face it knowing that He is there with me.
Lately, I have been concentrating on the word, “mindful.” I want my mind to be filled with God. Therefore, I am constantly stopping myself from ignoring Him. It is no once-and-done scenario! This came about as I realized how much time I was spending ignoring Him. Forgetting Who He is. Forgetting that we are related. Forgetting what He has done for me and my family.
Conclusion: I must be mindful of God at all times and in all things.
