Where does a woman who doesn’t have a moment to herself, find time to praise God?
The other day I was asked this on a radio interview. I thought it was a compelling question. I mean all of us are busy. Mothers of toddlers rarely get a minute alone, let alone 20 minutes. Women working in the corporate world rarely have time to breathe. Mothers of teens are busy attending all manner of sports events or music events. So, how in the world are we supposed to fit in time for praise.
As I’ve been reflecting on the question I’ve come up with a few ideas and I’d love to hear your ideas as well. I spend time early in the morning, before the rest of my family is up, on my knees listening to praise music. Car time has also been very effective for me. When I’m driving to the store, the mall, an event at church, or an appointment, I usually play praise music in my car. I can spend the moments in the car praising Jesus Christ for all He has done for me. When I take my walk in the morning, I also spend time talking to the Lord and exalting Him above all that’s going on in my life. I’ve also heard of mothers of young children who use their shower time or nap time to praise God. So how about you? How do you fit praise into your day? Leave a comment – I’ll pick one and the winner will get a free copy of The 30 Day Praise Challenge plus an I-Tunes gift card.
I wake up early to spend time worshipping – then when I’m working alone at work I spend it in praise. Praise to Jesus’s becomes my breath of life.
I use all those suggestions: listening to music in my car is huge. Sometimes I stop and really listen to the words. They are so powerful. Praying in the shower is a good one. Also just stopping before the start of the day and taking a few minutes to be in His presence.
