Be Present and Aware… with Tasks and People

Since going on sabbatical, I’ve found myself being more aware of the people around me and the tasks I am doing… This post inspired me…

Today, experiment with being present and aware during one of your appointments or tasks.

If you are meeting with a person:

Look them in the eye.

Listen attentively.

Pray for them as they speak to you.

Let God’s love flow through you to them.

If you are accomplishing a task:

Give God thanks for this opportunity.

Notice your surroundings. Is there something unexpected?

Try to find beauty in the moment (even if there isn’t anything inherently beautiful).

Sense God’s love for you as you engage in this work/event/task.
