Allowing Our Day to Overpower Our Faith

I read this today and it really hit me. Never heard this expressed quite this way.

If we allow our day to overpower our faith, we disallow God to have the glory that He desires. “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. .” (Romans 8:6 NIV) The daily tasks of life, both good and bad, should not stop us from focusing on Jesus and spending time getting to know Him.

I am so guilty of letting my day overpower my faith. So the question then becomes, how do I keep this from happening? I am not sure I will ever be perect at this, but I hope to improve. Maybe trying to remind myself to pray more, read a Bible verse or remember ones when I can, singing a good worship song. What are some ways you try to keep God at the forefront throughout your day? How do you or could you keep your day from overpowering your faith?

    When I go out the door I become aware how dangerous the world is. Just getting in the car and driving somewhere, These things constantly remind me that I need God, So I find myself praying throughout the day for God to keep me well and safe.
