The housework seemed overwhelming. Every time I looked, there seemed to be a new mess to clean up. I became overwhelmed, and when I’m overwhelmed, I’m grumpy.
One day I said, “Lord, would you help me with this house and everything that needs to get done?”
A few days later I read about Flylady as I was flipping through a magazine. Her teaching is that small routines will get the big jobs done.
I don’t pretend to have it all together, but truly, it has helped over the years.
One thing she talks about is worshipping her way through her housecleaning in the morning. What a way to start your day. I love that. I will often pray as I go about my daily routines. I didn’t feel like it made much of a difference, but the more I did it, the more I realized how much more in tune I felt with the Lord.
I love to set aside time to worship and pray. But sometimes, when life comes at you, you can worship and pray as you shower and get ready in the morning, as you do your dishes, as you pick up the house. And, you’ll find that worshipping and praying throughout your house, throughout your day, somehow changes the atmosphere to that of peace.
