1. Don’t just dream about a better routine. Be consistent and faithful in the one that God has already given you.
So maybe your routine is not in the place you desire for it to be. Maybe you’re working part time, when you’re really needing to be working full time. Perhaps you don’t enjoy the work you do or what you’re studying in school and you find yourself constantly daydreaming and thinking about where you’d rather be. These wise words of King Solomon in Ecclesiastes are a reminder to us all that we are not to be lazy. When we do, we lose out. So even if your routine is boring or mundane and you would rather be somewhere else, don’t stop being faithful to God! Even when no one is paying attention to you. Even when you’re working a “dead-end” job. God is doing something in your routine…as boring or as exhausting as it may seem at times. Let Him use you. /react-text
2. There’s more to this than you realize!
Perhaps your calendar for the week looks rather uninteresting. However, no matter what it is that you’re up to (or not up to) this week, God still wants to do amazing things in spite of your routine. You don’t have to wait until you get home from work or school to start really thinking about what it is that God wants you to do. You don’t have to wait until you have a college degree, thousands of dollars in the bank, or a husband in order to start serving the Lord today. In Matthew 28:16-20 Jesus reminds us that we have been commissioned to go and make disciples. This is something that we can every single day, and this is how we can make Christ the center of our routines. When you make a choice to let someone at work know they are appreciated, or when you call a friend to let them know you’re praying for them, you are being consistent and faithful to the Lord, even though you don’t know what’s coming next.
