What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a week set aside every year to bring attention to the importance of driving safely through highway work zones.
Why does that matter? It matters, because work zones are offices for some people. That’s right, often times they work just a few feet away from moving traffic!
That’s why it’s so important to slow down and pay attention whenever you drive through a work zone. The people who work in them want to get home to see their families, and their families want them to get home safely.
So, please, “Don’t Be That Driver”…take your foot off the gas, put your phone away and focus on the road. Thank you for doing your part to help keep work zones safe!
The conversation came up last night about goals, when it comes to fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives. The goal I talked about is wanting to spend more time in prayer. Just, being able to have that closeness with God and maintain a conversation with Him.
Found this article this morning, and it has some great suggestions.
The directive to “pray without ceasing” means that we are ever present with God throughout the entire day. We are continually interacting with Him in prayer as we move from task to task. When we face a challenge, we ask for His assistance. As we experience a blessing, we thank Him for His favor.
It’s sort of like being on the phone, and we never hang up. We acknowledge His presence throughout every single day.
Good stuff. Click the link above to read the rest of the article. Just some simple, practical ways to keep the conversation going with God throughout your day.
It’s already come in handy for me, on my drive to work this morning. Go figure, the commute was much more peaceful than usual. 🙂
