The Check-In

Everyday at 2 pm a notification pops up on my phone.


God Check-in


If I am able I will do it right then.  If I’ve already done it, I’ll mark it as complete.  And if I can’t get to it, I’ll leave the notification up until I can.

Have you ever just checked-in with a friend or family member?  It might sound like this,  “Hey, how’s it going?”  “How you doing?”  “What’s going on?” “Anything I can do for ya?” or “Just wanted to check-in and let you know I’ve been thinking about you.”  That’s the whole idea behind my check in.  It’s not prayer, which I also try to do every day.  It’s something different.

I try not to ask God for anything during the check-in.  Usually I thank Him or run down my day so far.  “Appreciate you steering that meeting the way you did.” “Thanks for a pretty day, Lord.”  “Anything you want me to do?”  I haven’t gotten an overt answer yet, but sometimes I will receive a moment of clarity on a question I have been mulling over.

It’s a habit I want to get into that eventually won’t require an alert.  Some days I will clear the notice because I already checked-in one or more times.  Sometimes I have to do my check-in on the way home.  I’m never going to be perfect with it, but I always feel better after I do it.  And that’s an answer I truly appreciate.  God Bless!
