“Those who are filled with the cares of this world he will teach to draw near to God,to ask from Him the grace to do their duty faithfully, never forgetting that they can approach God, when they are most busied, in the market, and where men do congregate, or in the hour of leisure.”
From my morning readings in “The Practice of the Presence of God” by Brother Lawrence

What a wonderful concept, that we can approach God at any time, no matter what we are doing. We need not wait to commune with Him until Sundays, or our daily prayer time, or any other special time. We can check in as we go about our day’s work as well as our pleasures. He is always there, and always pleased to have us.
