The Case of the Missing Wallet

Today when I arrived I worked I realized I had forgotten something, my wallet.  My wallet is something I rarely forget if ever.  I realized I had left it at home when I had tried to get inside my work because I keep my badge inside my wallet.  There are three things I try to never leave the house without in the mornings: my keys, my watch, and my wallet.  Without my wallet through out the day I felt like I was a piece of myself.  I was also annoyed because in order to get to the break room at my work (also the bathroom) I needed to borrow someone else’s badge.  It is not something I prefer to be without during the day.

Also not having my wallet meant I was not carrying my wallet and my insurance card.  If I was pulled over during my drive home I would get at least two tickets: driving without a licence and no proof of insurance.  I could have had a disaster on my hands.  Good thing for me I did not get pulled over.

Not having my wallet did two things for me today: it hindered where I could have gone to at work, and it also put me in a position of venerability.  I feel the same way when I do not spend time with God daily.  If I missed my time with Him I am held back through out the day because I have not put my focus on Him.  It also puts me in a place of venerability because without that daily focus on God the temptation to sin tends to be stronger and more difficult to resist.

“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”  Psalm 46:10 ESV

We need to take the time to hear God daily.  A good quiet time boosts the soul.

I wrote a post back in January that looks at some good tips for Scripture reading:
