The Veil of Routine

This week’s blog post comes from my wife, Shellie. She has been working on a 21-day devotional related to different veils we have in life and their ability to cause us to miss God. She will be taking the next 9 weeks to share her entries and get feedback as she completes the formatting of her book. We appreciate any comments you may wish to share.

“But let me say this, dear brothers and sisters: The time that remains is very short. So from now on, those with wives should not focus only on their marriage. Those who weep or who rejoice or who buy things should not be absorbed by their weeping or their joy or their possessions. Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them. For this world as we know it will soon pass away.” 1 Corinthians 7:29-31 (NLT)


The checklist

Get dressed. Check. Eat breakfast. Check. Read email. Check. Have devotions. Check. Sound familiar?  It’s called routine. Most people have them. Some live a rigid lifestyle, keeping strictly to a routine. In many ways life is made to live routinely. Important details are better remembered by living this way. You must examine, however, how rigidly you hold to routines and be careful to not dismiss divine interruptions.

Missing God moments

This is a complex veil. Are you veiled by routine? Have God moments been missed by a personal list of items? Are you placing your own schedule above God’s agenda? Will you trust God with your life, including your plans?

The challenge

Ask God to remove the veil of routine from your life. Have God prioritize your routine and seek His agenda.
