    Do You Tell God About Your Day? Here’s Why You Should!

    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).

    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).

    1. AMEN- I read the title and intro paragraph and my heart just sighed. I hate when you are excited and happy and people look at you like you’re some crazy psycho alien from space! Or when you are sad and just want to cry they are like “It’s okay” (no, thats a lie) or “Don’t cry!” (well, I am sad so I cry. That’s what people do when they are sad.)

    2. i read part of this and knew i had to comment.
      some people talk to God by writing their thoughts down in a prayer journel. been there, tried that, and sometimes i do, on occasion.
      for a long time i just thought out my prayers, but my brain…well, let’s just say my motto is “I’m not random, i just think faster than everyone else.” so i get distracted. all. the. time. so even though i still pray silently- all the time, actually- I’ve learner the easiest way for me to really communicate with God is to just talk straight to Him. Talking is one of my talents, and this article really made me feel like that’s not so strange after all. and it’s not.

    3. it feels so good! I just got a job last month, its at a fast food place and i am mostly on dinning room (taking the trash out, cleaning the bathrooms, washing the tables and stuff like that) and so being there for a month now i realized that i am always talking with God just spending time with Him, these past 2 weeks i have been talking with God on where i should go to church, and i believe he is giving me my answer but i just dont want to hear it, so i am glad that can talk to Him when ever and where ever i am <3

    4. This is such a good idea! I usually start my day out with prayer, and I have been learning how to be best friends with God and make my relationship with Him more real and personal, and I am totally going to start doing this at the end of my day now! Thank you for this post! 🙂

    5. This is wonderful. I recently started a new job and it’s so easy to get overwhelmed so I just cry out to god and we just talk thru prayer and it’s so lovely. I love spending time with him and just talking to him. He truly understands us and everything we go through and our feelings. It also helps to start the day off with prayer and hopeful expectation to see god fulfill them. Thank you for this post!
