Does It Really Matter?

 Your thoughts can be prayers. When your thoughts are directed to God moment by moment, your whole life becomes communion with God. This is how we become one with the Father. This is how He gets involved with everything that concerns us.

 Stuff matters

Today I was speaking with a young man who expressed his success with the Game With Minutes. He said he has often heard people say that Jesus was all that mattered. This had always made him feel condemned because it wasn’t true for him.There were other things that mattered-a lot. He said that Jesus was number one with him. In fact, Jesus was everything to Him, but to say He was all that mattered would be lying.

By playing the game, this young man realized that what matters to him, matters to God. He could bring Jesus into all of his moments, and God would enhance everything that mattered to him. This was immensely freeing for him. He doesn’t see Jesus at a distance pointing a finger at him for thinking of something else. He now sees Jesus close to Him caring about what he cares about. It’s a relationship where Jesus brings life to everything that matters.

What are things that matter to you? Someone very close to you wants to talk to you about these. Play the Game With Minutes today, and see how much better your day goes. You are not alone!

“This game is not a grim duty. Nobody need play it unless he seeks richer life. It is a delightful privilege. If you forget to play it for minutes or hours or days, do not groan or repent, but begin anew with a smile. It is a thrilling joy. Ahead of you lie limitless anticipations”. (Laubach, 1933, The Game With Minutes, p. 28)

Dare to Pray, “Father, get involved in the lives of all I meet today. God bless America”
