His Presence, available today

“To lift up the hands in prayer gives God glory,
but a man with a dungfork in his hand,
a woman with a slop pail,
give Him glory
too.

God is so great that all things give Him glory –  if you mean that they should.”

~Ignatius Loyola

I’ve been asking God, how to commune with Him as much as I need to, despite all that has to be done each day.  And I think this is the answer, isn’t it?  We don’t commune despite of or outside of “normal” life. . . . . we commune in the midst.

We practice His Presence every moment of every day.

There is nothing more essential to a fruitful, joyful, life than learning to host the Presence of God well.

With Him we can do all things.

Without him even our best work is meaningless.

  1. I don’t know if you remember but Mom use to have the last portion of this statement by Tyndale framed behind the kitchen sink. It echos your sentiments spot on I believe:

    There is no work better than to please God; to pour water, to wash dishes, to be a cobbler, or an apostle, all are one; to wash dishes and to preach are all one, as touching the deed, to please God.

    William Tyndale, reformer
