This simple Christian mindfulness practice keeps us aware of God’s presence. It makes time spent in the car a joy.
When we are passengers in a car, rather than playing with our phones, look out the window. Notice the world going by: the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the grass, the sky, happy children.
Remember: “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies proclaim the work of His hands.” (Psalm 19:1)
Savor the beauty of the things we see. The one perfect cloud. The gradation of blue and gray in the sky. A well-tended garden. A family on a walk. Take a moment to pray for that family, too.
Another in-car practice that brings joy is naming the colors of things you see. Bringing awareness and gratitude while riding in a car helps us abide in God.
