Do You Tell God About Your Day? Here’s Why You Should!
Written by Jenn Arman | September 22, 2013
Have you ever had a great day and then when you told someone about it later, they were just like, “Oh, that’s cool”? C’mon, how about a little enthusiasm, please!
When I talk to people, especially when I’ve had a really good day or exciting news, I want them to be as excited as I am. Of course, when I’ve had a bad day, I just want someone to listen and give me a hug or let me cry about it.
If you’ve ever been a little disappointed in the response of another person to your exciting news or bad day, then maybe you should start telling God about it!
Here are five great reasons why we should tell God about our day, every day!
- God wants to spend time with you!
Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, ‘Where are you?’ (Genesis 3:9).
- God truly understands our feelings.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God…emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:5-7).
- God always listens! Nobody’s a better listener than God.
The righteous cry, and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles (Psalm 34:17).
- God provides rest and peace from stressful days.
‘Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest’ (Matthew 11:28).
- God can do anything!
And looking at them Jesus said to them, ‘With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’ (Matthew 19:26).
We all have great friends or family members we can talk to, but as amazing as our friends and families are, they still can’t compare with the perfection of God. Tell God about your day. Let Him hear your excitement about the great day He created for you. If your day was bad, tell Him why and let Him refresh you and give you peace.
God never disappoints! Do you tell God about your day? Does it help when you do?
I love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised (Psalm 18:1-3a).
