Do you ever rise in the morning determined to live a vibrant Christian life only to fall in bed at night asking where the day went? If you’re honest, the answer is yes because the answer is the same for all of us many days. The process of holding on to hope and joy through the minutiae of daily living is a lifelong process; and one that sometimes gets lost in the busyness of life.
The direction you set your feet is the destiny that you choose. If you begin your day with some time spent in God’s word and some more time spent listening to Him in prayer then you have made a conscious decision to be guided by God throughout the rest of the day. You have set your feet in the direction you want to go.
The ancient Hebrews talked about how to successfully navigate life before the face of God in many Old Testament scriptures. Over and over the writers of the Bible talk about looking to God throughout the day for the help to live rightly. The psalmist also tells how Evening, morning and at noon will I pray (Psalm 55:17). Asking God for strength and grace to live for Him through the day is a biblical idea.
The trouble with us is that we get busy and forget to call out to God and think His thoughts in the midst of life. The ancient Jews put God’s word on their doorposts and even rolled up in tiny scrolls worn on their foreheads. That wouldn’t work for us today – but the idea of having God’s word in front of us, where we do the “stuff’ of life can be translated into modern culture.
Christian wall art is wonderfully available for modern believers. Whether the words of Scripture itself, or framed prayers and blessings, we too can have visual reminders to cry out to God and find strength in Him. Wall crosses, framed artwork depicting biblical scenes and more not only make the walls of our homes more attractive, they help to make us more attractive as well.
In the hurry of life when we feel frazzled what difference would it make to look up and see “Be still and know that I am God” – probably a significant difference. Sanctification is a long road and all of us can use encouragement along the way. Christian wall art is a time-honored way to stay inspired all day long.
